Like many aspects of UTVs and other powersports vehicles, the Can-Am Commander air intake usually flies under the radar until issues arise. Machines suffering from restricted air flow can benefit greatly from Can-Am Commander high-flow intake kits from companies like Aftermarket Assassins, while vehicles with damaged air intake manifolds won’t function correctly until replacement Can-Am Commander air intakes are installed. But regardless of whether you got some crankcase oil in your Can-Am Commander’s air box after accidentally tipping the vehicle on its side, or if your Can-Am Commander air filter keeps getting clogged with mud, dust, and other debris, make sure that ample amounts of unsoiled air enters your side-by-side with the Can-Am Commander air intakes and Can-Am Commander air intake accessories from Everything Can-Am Offroad! Because if your rig is wheezing while you ride and constantly gasping for air, its performance will be negatively affected and serious engine problems will likely follow!
There are countless factors that can cause your Can-Am Commander to be sluggish and underwhelming on the track or trail. If it seems like the motor isn’t revving to its full potential and the rpms stall out at around 6,000 (and your speed maxes out at 45 mph), it could be that you’re using the “eco” key, which tells the ECU to restrict the vehicle’s performance. Bad fuel could also be the culprit, so flushing your fuel tank and using a fuel additive such as SeaFoam with new gasoline could solve the problem -- as could installing new spark plugs. The most common issue experienced by Can-Am Commander owners, however, is a blocked Can-Am Commander air intake. Swapping out your Can-Am Commander air filter is one thing, but really getting in there to make sure that nothing is wedged inside the Can-Am Commander air intake opening, the Can-Am Commander air intake tubing, or the Can-Am Commander air intake cover is an important thing to do. But before you can unblock your air intake, you must first come to know the Can-Am Commander air intake location (which, on most Can-Am Commander editions, is centrally located under the hood on the front of the side-by-side).
Depending on your riding style as well the environments where you ride, you might not experience any complications with the factory Can-Am Commander air intake location. This isn’t the case for everyone though. Those who live in moist areas replete with mud, puddles, and other water hazards will often opt for a Can-Am Commander air intake kit that repositions the location of the Can-Am Commander air inlet. Aftermarket Can-Am Commander air intake snorkels are a perfect example of this, which place the Can-Am Commander air intake higher up so that the machine is able to draw dry air away from the wet and muddy ground. In a similar vein, Can-Am Commander clutch air intake snorkels yield comparable benefits. Just like you don’t want your Can-Am Commander engine air intake to feed your motor nasty air via the throttle body, you also don’t want your Can-Am Commander clutch air intake to deliver grit, water, or other contaminants to your Can-Am Commander clutches. Thankfully, at Everything Can-Am Offroad, we offer everything from aftermarket Can-Am Commander 1000 air intake products to Can-Am Commander 800r air intake accessories like filters, pre-filters, snorkels, and more!
No discussion of Can-Am Commander air intakes would be complete without touching on Can-Am Commander air filters, Can-Am Commander pre-filters, and Can-Am Commander particle separators. Can-Am Commander owners who ride in dusty surroundings may find themselves needing to replace their paper stock-style air filters after every outing. This can be overcome, though, with Can-Am Commander air intake accessories like pre-filters and particle separators. While the former adds another layer of protection to your existing Can-Am Commander air filter, the latter proactively scrubs the air before sending it through to your Can-Am Commander air intake.
Even with such air-cleaning accessories, however, if your Can-Am Commander air box isn’t sealing around the edges or lid, not even a whole bottle of grease on the gasket and post filter will prevent fine particles from infiltrating the air intake. Therefore, your best bet might just be to get a replacement Can-Am Commander air box from Everything Can-Am Offroad. And because we carry Can-Am Commander air boxes, Can-Am Commander air intakes, and all kinds of Can-Am Commander air cleaners, you won’t struggle to find anything you need to help your rig inhale pristine air when shopping at Everything Can-Am Offroad!
Minimize system damage and prevent particles from exacerbating wear in your engine, clutch, and transmission with the Can-Am Commander air intakes from Everything Can-Am Offroad! As a crucial component of combustion, oxygen is continually required by your side-by-side’s engine to function properly. And to ensure that the air your bike needs is both ample and pure, running a well-functioning Can-Am Commander air intake is critical. Many riders like to snorkel their air intakes to prevent them from getting filled with water and mud, while others use both air filters and pre filters to trap unwanted debris before it reaches the internal components. Particle separators for the Can-Am Commander are also common, which act as an additional filter to clean the air before it even reaches your stock Commander air filter. It doesn’t matter if you’re partial to mud and tired of cleaning gunk out of your air intake / filter, or if you’ve modified your engine and don’t want to risk the entry of even the slightest bit of dust, the aftermarket Can-Am Commander air intakes we offer are guaranteed to please!
Riders with aftermarket modifications often like to use aftermarket air intakes for an increased oxygen supply. Not getting enough 02 to the engine, after all, will negatively affect the combustion process, causing the vehicle to run fuel rich. A large number of riders, however, are simply in need of replacement Can-Am Commander air intakes, which is why we offer factory-style air intakes for the Can-Am Commander as well! If you went too extreme and somehow damaged your air intake housing, or if there’s a pinhole leak somewhere in your intake system and air is escaping, we’ve got the air intake fixes and replacements to make your rig right as rain. Be it the air intake for the engine, the air intake for the belt, or an aftermarket inline intake blower mod to move more air through the CVT / belt area in a bid to preserve the belt life and keep the cab cooler, we’ve got the stuff to meet all your Can-Am Commander air intake needs here at Everything Can-Am Offroad!
