Slp is much better the timbersled is restrictive I've had both and I would grab one if you can't afford the slp because all the stock box does is suck in belt dust which is more excessive because the belt wears twice as fast as a regular belt on the 900 cause of the high torque loads

I have heard alot about belt dust being sucked in the stock air box,don't really see how this happens when the large foam piece under the hood go's around the air box intake. I have never had any dust issues,and my air box is gutted,I think the timber sled is resrtictive,and have also heard of probloms with the slp because it can get clogged with snow. Gut the stock box and save the money for a pipe.

The stock airbox can suck belt dust in through the small drain holes in the bottom and if you blow a belt it can destroy the stock box causing the motor to suck pieces of airbox and belt in through the reeds.

My airbox must have been modified,no small holes in it. My friends dad,the previous owner blew a belt when it was new and no damage. I put 1500 miles on a 111 belt and it barely wore at all. I would say my clutching is dead on. Sled fly's.

Pull the screws that hold it together and remove the chambers inside so it is open,my friends dad did mine before I baught it. It was recomended by a very good polaris tech,slp also put something out it in the tips bulletin to do it also. It works for me. Good luck.
