I have a couple hundred hours in some pretty dusty conditions and I do not see much dust in under the CVT cover at all. I have replaced the gasket once at 186 hours when I did a belt check. I usually go last inline to make sure everybody makes it out, I ride mostly with ATV's. I think impeding the flow with a filter might be worse especially on an 08 if the 09's really have better airflow through the CVT they might benefit more if any would. Keep in mind I am a trail not a dune rider. I would be curious to see what duners think. In my dalton clutch install video #2 you can see me pull everything apart and nothing is dusty hardly at all and I had just gotten back from a MAJOR dustbowl of a ride to Rose Hill VA/KY.

i did a kawasaki parts fiche comparison on the 08 and 09 CVT intake ducts and they are identical. same part numbers on all parts. The only difference is the CVT exhaust duct is up higher under the airbox on the 09 whereas the 08 is right above the rear drive line axle

Very odd, because Kawasaki says this about the 09 CVT...

Improved Continuously Variable Transmission

Featuring high and low ranges, plus reverse, the CVT provides a very direct feel from the engine, and instantaneous acceleration – ideal characteristics for sport riding
Transmission utilizes a high-grade belt that’s highly durable and designed to handle the high output of the engine
The CVT Belt Protection System better prevents tire freewheel, has upgraded rock section performance and less belt overloading by adding Throttle Position Sensor (TPS) data into the system

For better protection against water entry, the intake and exhaust ducts were changed, with the new exhaust duct opening located higher and the revised intake duct flowing more air to the CVT for better cooling
Intake temperature reduced with heat shielding on the exhaust pipe below the intake duct

yes i read the very same thing from the kawie website...

today i took a trip to the dealer to see for myself. He just got in a sport lime green and a LE metallic Blue 09 models. They were doing the one over on everything and had the engine cover off. Everything on the intake looks the same as the 08 cvt intake. The CVT exhaust is up higher on the 09. Unless there is a fan on the inside of the clutch which isnt visible unless you remove the cvt cover is the only way i see it getting more airflow. The new rhinos have the fan installed on the secondary. I dunno maybe its just a way kawie would get more people interested in buying. Sales gimmick...BTW you can get the 09 CVT exhaust duct for 16$ at the stealer and install it on the 08. I did and its a nice mod.

i found this while searching for something else. the 09 CVT intake IS defiantly different. It uses a larger diameter throat but then goes back to the same size as the 08 where mating to the motor.
