Bellows instead of vent lines

Recommended Posts

Has anyone replaced their differential vent lines with the bellows used on Can Ams or Arctic Cats? I have ridden around with balloons on the end of my vent lines just to see how much pressure is generated from the diffs getting hot and it's practically none. I'm going to get a couple of these and try them out, I found them for $5 a piece. It's worth a shot and if it works it will save me a lot of fluid changes.

I've never done this, but am curious on the reults.

I moved this into the General ATV Discussions forum as it wasn't tagged with a specific model, and may get more responses here.

I've got 8 of them on the way. 4 for two honda foremans, 2 for a big bear and 2 for a prairie. I'll let you know how they work out after our next ride when we have a chance to test them in the water all day long and see if any water gets in. the can am part number is 705400352, it's called a SOUFFLET BELLOW. I believe the same part number is used on all can ams.

how do you like your king quad? do you have anything negative to say about it?

My Cat came with the bellows as standard. No problems with them at all.

The Vinson comes with bellows from the factory and they seem to work well.

they work great. they fit perfectly on the prairie. a little loose on the big bear and foremans, but a little bit of electrical tape and they were snug. no more water in the diffs!

The new machine I picked up also has the bellows, so Arctic Cat must not think they are an issue.

I inspect mine to see if they are ok, so far no issues.

      New arctic cat owner, I've read alot on the gauge issues, but let me say I have power, good ground, the aux also has power, the memory has correct voltage but no output of any kind. Only the LCD color works. I have also fully removed EVERYTHING and cleaned it all... what I still possibly have a cut wire knowing that I have good power to the back of the plug and good ground to the back of the plug but no outputs of any kind?

      Can anyone point me to a good set of instructions for changing front diff oil on a 1987 Suzuki LT4WD? I can almost guess which bolts are drain & fill... but I've been wrong before... 😆 
      I found some partial posts on other forums and they linked out to dead images and whatnot. Any help appreciated. 
      This thing is running pretty good, got the front brakes back to life, electric start works fine, seat cover fixed up, plastics stitched back together...

      Correct me right off the bat here if I'm wrong, I'm not sure if they're vacuum or breather lines. However, does anyone have a diagram of the lines? When I pulled the carb there were 2 lines that were not connected to anything. I did find a nipple on the frame next to the one for the diff breather line but again am unsure if these are breather or vacuum lines. A diagram would be great or if I could get pointed in the right direction.
      I did run through all the Honda threads and didn't find anything. I also looked at exploded diargrams on parts websites, they just don't explain where these lines go.
      Thanks in advance!

      Hey guys. I have a 2004 Polaris PRedator and the piece that connects the vent tube to the gas cap came off. so the tube wont just go into the hole. Im supposed to be going to ride tomorrow so is it safe to ride it without the tube? or if not is there something I can do for a quick fix?

      I installed a SuperTrapp Mudslinger and a K&N yesterday and took my AC 400 out for a test ride today to see how it was running.
      During my ride, I noticed a fuel leak that appears to be coming from the carb vent hose.
      The carb is bone stock, and hasn't been touched. I wanted to see how it was running before planning any jetting.
      What does this mean? How worried should I be?
