Well I got my Summit heater and vents and such today. I have a few ideas on how to do it but have learned from experience to ask how others did it ahead of time.

With the airbox in the middle on the 08's that limits choices to the drivers side under the hood or under the seat.

Seems to me you are supposed to keep everything under the height of the radiator to keep air from getting in there. This makes the drivers side under hood questionable.

Going under the seat looks like it can be done with the proper plumbing.

Yamaha Accessories has a heater system by Heater Craft that looks identical to the Summit heater with the exception being it has three vents instead of two. I would love to find the instructions for that to see how exactly they did it.

So can anyone post pics of their heater install and plumbing?

Thanks!

I'll get some over the next few days. Choices for under the hood are very slim. Under the seat worked out rather well though. I was worried about adding the extra hose length into the cooling system but it worked out just fine.

My heater is above the driver side
