With just one or two cylinders, as the case may be, your ZForce is more similar to a motorcycle than a car. Notwithstanding, the primary concepts of internal combustion are the same; your vehicle needs fuel, oil, and clean air to operate optimally. All of these substances have dedicated systems that need to be configured correctly.
Regarding the air intake system, the configuration largely depends on the operating conditions and engine type. It is common knowledge that the operating conditions for most UTVs are far from perfect as these vehicles slug it out with sand, debris, mud, dust, and the like. With this in mind, getting a sound air intake system is important. Here are some things to consider when shopping for CFMoto ZForce air intake.
Different manufacturers design their air intake to suit specific UTVs, makes, models, and years. Verifying that a product fits your side-by-side before you place that order is important, and this will help prevent misfits and subsequent air intake problems.
Water Protection Level
When shopping for an air intake, you should consider the level of protection from water and wet weather. If your terrain consists of wet areas, like deep puddles or streams, ensure that your air inlet is above the water level. If it sucks in water, you might have a hydro locking or engine failure problem on your hand.
The air filter plays a vital role in trapping dust, sand, and debris, and manufacturers are always trying out different materials and structures to optimize the air filter. If dust or sand manages to penetrate your engine, it can prove disastrous. To avoid this, ensure the air filter is appropriately sealed to prevent air leakage.
Besides the ZForce air intake hose and air intake filter, EverythingCFMotoOffroad also has throttle bodies, intake manifolds, Zforce air intake snorkel, and ZForce air intake sensors.
