I just got my s&b and the exit is at the bottom of separater won't that throw dirt on my intercooler.this is for my 2020 maverick rs turbo r.
THIS is the correct X3 S&B application from their website, which is what it looks like you have. The fan is pointing downward as shown in your picture, but that's where exhaust (clean) air from the fan, not dirt, should be exiting. The dirt/dust should be exiting through the duct, which is shown underneath the fan (which is similar to the picture you posted, which is upside down compared to this one). Nothing is (or should be) hitting your intercooler except clean air that's blasting downward from the fan.

What?

The clean air goes through the duct and into the airbox which S&B provides. The dirty air comes out of the fan.

Sorry for my choice of words, I stated that bass ackwards...! :ROFLMAO:

The air enters the intake through the large snorkel like device with the holes in it and the fan pulls (separates) the dirt/dust out of it so mostly clean air goes to the intake through the hose and the dirt/dust is blown out through the backside of the fan,

I know the positioning is adjustable and I would NOT want it venting on my intercooler, that re-route kit looks like it'd work great if you need to use it, just another $50 you'd have to come up with.

Here's the rear exit to help avoid pushing dirt into the intercooler. When I called S&B they didn't have a good explanation as to why they changed the exhaust setup, but they were more than willing to sell me the old style exhaust. Luckily my new one came with the old style exit.

I just installed mine last week that I purchased from rocky mountain ATV and it had the (V2) exhaust on it.

^ excellent info, thanks! It'd be nice to know ahead of time what version you're getting so you don't end up needing to spend extra for the hose kit or rear exhaust...

Thanks Hdrjoe, do you know if Mav turbo uses the same filter as the X3, if so do you have a filter number. I was going to just take in to drive train and see if they could get one to work. The price of an inner filter would be well worth the cost.
I have a Sport XRC and the filter is the same as an X3. I gave my new filter to a friend with an X3 because I had bought 2 R2C filters for it. They are cleanable and can be wash out with a hose. Used them for 4600 miles and the intakes were perfectly clean when I put a new filter in. I sold the machine and bought a KRX 1000 but have one of the R2C filters.

Robin called this morning and said the techs took mine apart and didn't find anything wrong with it. So we'll see how this new one works, not sure when I'll get some more silt time.
Zambo, did your new S&B work better? I’m having the same issue you had.

I wiped the inside of the outlet so the difference could be seen.
lots of dust in air box and filter.
fortunately the stock paper air filter did its job, but is completely clogged with dust.
Hoping there’s a fix. The S&B doesn’t seem to be doing much for me?

I just bought a used particle separator but it didnt come with the rubber boot and plenum that lead into the screen filter inside the black cover of the intake. Any suggestions with that I can use to get the hose to point in the hole there? Or would it be okay if I just stick the duct inside the cover and seal it up with i dont know tape or something? Here's what im missing:

You're going to need to order those parts from s&b. Call them. I bought a cheap used one too and it was only missing the rubber part. It was like $30 I think.

Check it the parts diagram on their website so you have the item number/description

Any chance you can hit up the guy you bought it from to see if he has the parts still?

Also does your hose have a seal on one side? One side should just be like a flat rubber coupler but the other side that connects to your airbox should have a seal/lip around it.

Yeah I do have the boot on one side of the hose. Going out riding next weekend and it's super dusty where we're going so really wanted to have thing up by then.

I mean I guess it should work if you tape the crap out of it.

Just checked and the rubber boot was 40. I'm guessing the plenum would be the same or maybe a little more

I contacted S&B. And they were very helpful. They had me send additional pics. and they are sending me a new rear plenum and seal. Hopefully that fixes it. I’ll keep you posted.

Hey sorry for the late reply. It does seem to work better but still not sure what was wrong with the first one, if anything. Bottom line is that it definitely helps but nothing is going to totally eliminate the kind of dust I ride in. Customer service from SnB was very good.
