ODES 800cc Air Filter Relocation Kit Installation Instructions

Prep your ODES UTV for the Air Filter Relocation Kit. 

Remove the seats and engine cover. 

If you have heated seats, make sure you unplug them first. On the rear engine cover, you will need to remove two screws and the female end of the seatbelt. Don't worry about removing the shifter, just turn it 90 degrees. And prepare to remove approximately 8,352 plastic push pins.

Remove the air box.

This one's easy. One clamp, one hose, and three bolts. See the photos below.

Remove the cup holder and heated seat switches. 

Reach from the rear and push the switches out to the passenger area of the cab. Unplug them, and tuck the harness back into the hole. Remove more push pins.

Remove the driver kick panel.

You can skip this step if you don't mind cuts and bruises and pulling on parts and cussing. We recommend you pull a few more push pins and one more bolt.

Pull the clutch vent pipe.

Remove the vent pipe that runs under the shifter and to the rear of the engine. We are going to re-route this so that it doesn't run directly over and suck up hot air. It's just two bolts and a clamp. You can loosen the shifter if you need. We usually don't but you might find it helpful.

Install vent hose in elbow pipe.

You'll need to remove the vent hose connector from the air box first. See the photos below.

Now install the rubber grommet in the hole on the u-shaped pipe and install the plastic elbow. Be gentle! If the rubber grommet gives you trouble, a little silicone grease or even saliva (not the band) will go a long way. Please, NO PETROLEUM based lubricants. Petroleum will deteriorate the rubber.

Trim the clutch vent pipe.

Most of them have a wrap on them. We are going to trim off the area just above this wrap. If you don't have the wrap, measure down from the side with the closest to the bracket. Make your cut at ZIBBIT below the end of the pipe with the bracket.

Connect the elbow to the airbox.

Loosen the intake clamp on the intake at the engine. We do this so the throttle body can move and twist a bit. Otherwise, it make have a bind or pull that can cause the rubber to crack out faster than normal.

Now grab the u-shaped pipe that you installed the vent hose connector to. The short end with the coupler needs to go on the intake side.

Pro-Tip: Put the clamps on and DO NOT TIGHTEN them until AFTER you have installed everything. Ask me how I know.

Now reconnect the vent hose.

Connect the flex tube.

Line up the flex tube with the end of the u-shaped pipe and push it under the shifter. Make sure you put the clamp on first, then secure the tube to the pipe.

*Your install will look a little different at this point. In the photos above, we used version 1 of the Air Filter Relocation Kit, which originally had a shorter pipe. New photos coming as soon as we get the chance. In the meantime, just line the flex tube up with the pipe, and slide it under the shifter.

Connect the plastic vent hose and the 45 degree aluminum pipe.
