I have a 2019 RZR 1000 XP 2 seater and really want to do the intake, but I am wondering if placing it right behind the passengers on the roll cage adds to a more annoying intake noise. I enjoy being able to hear my music and don't want a loud intake noise right behind my head. or is this more of a ram air intake and there isn't much intake noise?
thank you in Advance

It has a motor whine which is audible at idle speed/while sitting still, but hardly noticeable when moving (mine is mounted exactly where you're talking about - directly behind my head on the top bar of the roll cage).

It sounds like a vacuum cleaner. But I wear headsets and have the AlphaBass setup from Rugged so I can't hear it any way.

I have it right behind our rear window. It is loud and we do hear it. We so have a kill switch for when we are idling or have the key on.

our friends have one of the canam maveri turbo 120 horse and the intake just happens to be behind the head but they hate the noise of the air intake and can hear it whining. just was wondering if this sounds similar or annoying. Thank you all for the responses i wont have a rear windshield for awhile

the particle separator seems like a great way to help eliminate alot of dust from the air filter its quite a bit of money and just don't want to spend the money and then hate the noise I'm​ hearing from the motor

For how effective it is at what it does, I wouldn't care if I had to wear earplugs to keep from hearing it.


If most of your riding is sitting at a stop with your engine running and/or putting around at just off-idle speeds, it will be noticeable. Once you get up to any decent speed, the wind blast and engine noise is far louder than the S&B.

Just installed mine in between the two rear seats on the bar behind them..sounds like a vacume cleaner but once the motor is on it's barely noticeable...however worth every cent keeping you motor air filter clean

I have both the SB separators for the motor and for the helmet pumper system mounted between the seats on my Turbo S 2-seat. Like the others said, at idle it is like having 2 hair-dryers running next to your head. But once running the grin on my face and the sound of the motor takes it all away. During a stop, speaking with others short of yelling is difficult without shutting down.

For how well it works? I had this on my 2016 Turbo and I ride So Cal dusty deserts. After using it for 2 years, I changed the paper Polaris air filter, only because I felt I should and felt guilty throwing it away, it was PURE & CLEAN. I was more concerned the paper might rot from age, not from dust.

Highly recommended.

were you able to find a switch for that or do you build a switch? not the best with electrical but can figure it out if needed to build a switch

I installed mine with a switch ordered off Amazon:

https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B001GH1PUU/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o07_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

Pretty simple installation.

You can also order a switch from S&B that has their logo on it.

The fan is a little loud... however as others have stated... you don't notice it when riding.
