K & N for R-2?

Recommended Posts

Does K & N make a Air filter to fit stock air box? Number #? Or do I need cone style type? Is there enough clearance for bed to close?

Thx,

Chalkstk

Not that I have come across. You could go with K&N Pod filter and set it up like a snorkel, like this Air Filter/Snorkle - UTV BOARD - Side X Side and UTV Forum post 10. The K&N part # is RC-4160 and pre-filter is #RC-4160-DK. You could mount it in the engine bay, but why would you.

Fram do make a Air Filter that is a cross brand for the Renegade stock air box. I can't find the part number but if you take it into your local parts store, they will find the match & you never know, they might find a K&N match too.

TJ USA did have a part conversion chart and they state in there that a CARQUEST Air Filter part # CA3718 . We don't have CARQUEST over here so don't know what they are like.

Cheers Mike.

How do I get it out of the bay with my bed? The only exit would be somewhere above gas tank where fill snorkle is. Would I just need proper od flex hose?

Cut a hole through the vent mesh between the two seats. That is the best way. Kinarfi used a 7" vacuum cleaner hose and extension hose wand. Look in here Parts, Pieces, and Information for our Troopers - UTV BOARD - Side X Side and UTV Forum under My Snorkel.

Cheers Mike.

Thx, Mike.....................this board is a Godsend. Amazed at the ingenuity of those here. Men after my own heart...........improvise when engineers have brain F**ts B)

On the R2 the flex hose that runs from intake to the air box is long enough to take off the air box and turn up and run between bed and cab, I mounted mine to the cross bar with a 2 hole strap, no drilling or cutting anything, used a short pice of pvc pipe to clamp between flex hose and filter. looks cool and sounds great when you dance on it. the oem air box leaks too much dirt past the filter and why have a filter intake right in front of the rear wheel? I havn't had to clean the new filter for a long time now.

Hi Renegade, Thx for the tip. I have a K & N number from another poster.............RC-4160 and pre-filter wrap.....RC-4160-DK. Is the dia. of the stock hose the same as this filter for tight clamping with hose clamp? I haven't had it apart yet to measure. K & N has a multiple of throat sizes and I want to be sure to order right filter size.

Thx again,

Frankie aka Chalkstk

PS have you ever encountered high rev problem like I have on the R-2? How about any differential problems like many seem to have with Troopers? That scares the u-no what out of me:)

I used a pvc reducer to change to the right size of the filter neck works great, I have 2 R2s and never had a problem with the idel, R2s didnt seem to have the same diff problems as the Troppers my 08 has over 6k miles and no problems.

Good to hear about the diff's. So do I have the right filter number? The reducer is a plumbing part I assume.............from what to what as to diameters?

I am famous for ordering wrong cat #, LOL!

Frankie, the intake hose on a Renegade is the same on a Trooper so will fit. To double check when you order, your intake flexi hose is 70mm or 7cm. That is the same size as the K&N pod filter and stock pod filter.

There is more than one way to tackle the heat & dust problem you may have with your Renegade. This is what I did on a Commando 4 seater. The Commandos have a normal intake like the Renegade so we simply ran good quality hose & stainless steel pipe from the intake box up and out into the open and topped it off with a 90 degree bend. An enclosure was going over the top so we faced it forward to ram air into the intake. A small pre-filter is recommended to go over the hose.

    • Nothing Comes Close To The NORRA Mexican 1000

      SEPT. 13, 2016 (Agua Dulce, Calif.): Just ask anyone whoâs attended. No other racing event covers such a broad spectrum of experiences like the Mexican 1000. 2017 marks the 50th anniversary of the race. This yearâs event will be even more spectacular with a first night stay in beautiful San Felipe and lots of new and exciting additions. What makes the Mexican 1000 so special? For starters, itâs a travelling car show but still a serious competition for both restored classic race cars and state of the art two, and four wheeled vehicles. Many of the drivers and riders who made those old cars and bikes famous, participate in the rally every year. They can be found lining up next to you on race day, hanging out in the pits, or sharing a meal and a few drinks at the celebrations each night. NEW! this year is the addition of the Day 1 finish and overnight in San Felipe. This cuts down the initial Day 1 time and allows everyone a chance to acclimate themselves with the rally format if they are unfamiliar, shake out the bugs if any, and soak up the remainder of the day along the malecon overlooking the beautiful Sea of Cortez. âThe Happiest Race On Earth!â is entirely about having fun and creating memories that will last a lifetime. You will experience the most stunningly beautiful Baja scenery as you make your way down the entire length of the Baja Peninsula without the incredible stress and lack of sleep associated with a typical peninsula run. After each day of racing, you will have enough free time to experience a different location in Baja with your friends and family. Each overnight stop has its own unique charm and character. There will be some race sections where the bikes and cars will run separate, but all competitors will be staying in the same towns and attending the same events every night. For the 50th anniversary there will be even more hospitality and special events each night. While there are certainly some favored drivers (like a certain Robby Gordon above) and vehicles in the rally, rest assured that every entry gets their own 5 minutes of fame somewhere along the course. (HINT: "eSteekers" and hand outs are always a crowd pleaser!)New this year will be several benefits aimed at the racers. Additional Insurance is available, (increased medical insurance to $10,000, legal support, and bail bonds). There is a new scoring and timing system that uses the latest technology to increase safety. There will be FREE MAG-7 pit support for EVERY entry including cars this year, and the Race for Cash will have an optional daily jackpot which means 6 opportunities to win plus the overall in your category, (more information will be provided in separate press release).After days of competition, there is a unique camaraderie that is forged between the racers. They all pitch in to make sure everyone makes it to the finish line in Cabo and the incredible awards ceremony that follows. The very first adventurers who set off to run the peninsula would throw a huge celebration afterwards to mark their accomplishment. That tradition continues to this day at the Mexican 1000. If you love to race, love to have fun, and love the food, drink and music of Baja, you must come down and experience âThe Happiest Race On Earth!â, the NORRA Mexican 1000. ABOUT NORRA Beginning in 2010, the National Off Road Racing Association (NORRA) began promoting a rebirth of the NORRA Mexican 1000 rally. The unique off-road rally was co-created by promoter Mike Pearlman to consist of special stages (unlimited speed timed stages in the dirt) linked together by controlled speed liaison / transit sections (highway). The one-of-a-kind, once-a-year, four-day rally includes vintage off-road vehicles and motorcycles, as well as modern desert Rally Raid cars, pre-runner trucks, buggies and motorcycles. Pearlmanâs late father Ed and others established the first running of the NORRA Mexican 1000 off-road rally in November of 1967, which eventually became internationally recognized and evolved into the Baja 1000 in the mid-1970's. The 2016 NORRA Mexican 1000 was supported by Azunia Tequila, Walker Evans Racing, South Point Hotel Casino, Bilstein Shock Absorbers and Mastercraft/Impact Safety.
