KWT gave me their version 2 pre-filter to test mid December. I have got 300+ miles on it. I should have started with a new air filter, when I switched. My filter has over 500 miles on it. Since I put version 2 on it hasn’t gotten any dirtier.

They wanted to get more of the fine dust out before it gets to the filter. Well it’s working. A big improvement. Looking at the plenum on the dirty side of the filter after a very dusty ride I am seeing a much finer light misting, with almost nothing getting past the factory filter.

I got to ride with the KWT team recently where they were testing version 2 on a RZR. It was taking out huge amounts of dust with almost nothing getting in the filter.

The developer thinks he can tweak it even more before it goes into production.
When I get my talon back from the shop (LF Diff leak again?) I’ll put a new air filter in and get some better before and after pics.

check the last photo how much dirt collected in the rear cargo area. That was under my storage bag!

Hi HavasuDave!
I conversed with you a while back about the KWT filter for my Talon 1000X with a rear window. I have emailed them twice and left a phone message and have yet to hear back from them. Not sure what this means. Do you know if they are still selling them? Thanks!

One other thing, how would this work in the rain?

Hey RutNut, I sent them a text asking your questions. I know they got a CNC machine and were either starting production or getting ready to start on the X2 version 2 and a new clamp. I’ll let you know when I hear back.
I just took a 122 mile ride with a new filter. I’ll post the video of the results here.

Hi guys I just finished a 122.6 mile ride in dusty conditions in the Parker / Bouse area (Swansea/midway/planet ranch area) I made a video of the results. Check it out:

Dave, I have the same one as you that I am testing also. It's the one Ken had on his RZR. So far, it has been working just fine. When I received and installed it, I placed a new filter in the Talon. The old one was very heavily loaded with dirt and ready to be changed at 484 odometer miles. I will be opening up the unit again and comparing the air filter to the old one at around 900 miles (in about another 100 miles or so) on the odometer. At that time, I'll will be giving Ken a full report. I live in Kingman.

I look forward to seeing how it works for you. Where did you mount it?

I mounted it on the rear down frame rail on the passenger side. I have a rear windscreen and didn’t want to cut a large hole in it to mount the unit. It really works well for me because in doing to, I have full view in my rear view mirror and it also gets it a little higher in the dust flow. I see you purchased a Talon from Rt 66 Motorsports (Mother Road Harley). This is where I purchased mine. I got one of their original 3 units of the 1000X 4 Live Valve. Now I’m waiting for Shock Therapy to complete their suspension kit so I can get them to soften the suspension up in the lower speed range and over rocky fire roads and terrain. In the attached pictures, you can see where I mounted the KWT particle separator.

That looks great! Hey you got the new clamps too! Very well equipped. Interested in how you like your ride. Yes RT66 was great and they have given me great service.

No, these are my clamps that I already had to make this work. The ones I got, weren’t even close for my needs. I just put my car in today and got it back this pm for the leaky front seal. They used Honda’s new replacement seal for the fix. I hope this new part on fixes the problem. I’m going out with my Talon all next week camping. I can’t wait for a great time with it, my wife, the dog and the motor home. Good times away from all of the daily BS ( lol) !!
