No filter for clutch intake!!!!

Had a Uni filter on my intake for the clutch and ruined a belt. long run on paved road and was only one with a filter and only one that shredded a belt. Replaced on the trail. Come to find out 30 minutes later the exhaust side of clutch had debris still in it, over heated clutch and shredded another belt. This time it got so hot it melted my internal sheave sliders to inside of sheave, along with the teflon covers for the wieghts. Thru debris behind inside plate(motor side) of clutch, dislodging it off the splines and destroying the teeth. Then melted the tube for the clutch exhaust. $540 in parts from stealer. Repaired next morning, drove 120 miles over next 2 days. Moral to long story, ditch your filter!!!!

I had mutiple trips to Oco and Glamis with a filter without any problems. It wasn't til we went on a 11 mile run, at 45-50mph, on a paved road to get to the trail head, did I have a problem. Leave it stock. Trust me, I have a $540 envoice to prove it.

HAHAHA!!!!! When are they going to listen to you? Use sum pantyhose if your scared. You never hear of clutches having problems without a filter. You need as much air flow as possible. Inside the housing around the CVT gets hot.

Muzzy exhaust
Stage 2 HC
K&N Intake system
JBS sheave, 16gr. OD weight, and sliders
MSD Charge FI prototype (3D mapping)

My clutch problems started 15 min. into a ride after installing a new AFE filter that was made specific for the clutch housing. Got hot enough to melt a hole in the duct on the exhaust side and destroyed the sliders. Removed the filter and installed greaseless parts and havn't had any problems for over 1500 mi.

cvt filter

ran them on all 8 of the rhinos I have owned,I only run the foam filters...after every trip I hose the chit out of it and put it back on,no oils at all,do it dry,foam only....anything AFE makes is junk.........I knew the engineer for these guys and he was an idiot.......junk junk.....pull the drain out of the cvt tube and hose the filter with water.....its called maintenance, you don't do it you blow things up.....my rhino is full throttle out at the glamis all the time,never over heated a clutch yet..........

I also run a DRY UNI filter on the cvt intake...WOT most of the time at Glamis for two seasons. Sand and dust will get into everything. It's all about maintenance no doubt. Check the drain tube, clean the filter after rides. Lack of maintenance will kill anything over time. It makes me laugh whenever I hear someone complain about how much $$ was spent due to lack of maintenance. Even the best machines won't last long if not properly maintained. I have never heard anything good about AFE filters.

S-O-L-D !!!!!

I pull the uni filter off after every weekend trip and hose it out and put it back dry. Did it before this trip also. I have had this thing on for 2 years. I am usually out at either Oco or Glamis for 3-4 days, with 2-3 varying rides. This trip we had a long run on the highway to get to the trail, 10-12 miles. I think this steady nonstop drive did it. I service the **** out of my rides and this belt was brand new, this season. The stop and go driving done at my 2 riding places doesn't allow the clutch belt to get so hot. Everyone I talked to said the same thing, after a long high speed run they shreaded their belt. Like glamis to Mex.
