    Default Looking for the RT Vent Kit instructions

    Just picked up a RT Vent Kit for our 11 RT and it didn't come with instructions. By chance does anyone have any? Any tips on this installation would be greatly appreciated.

    You'll probably want to remove the acoustic panels to give better air flow to the engine compartment. The stuff about the fuel system is specific to the 2013s.

    Resent you the PDF document that will show you how to install the vents on your RT without the need for the template called out in the 2013 recall instructions.

    If you do a search for Doc Riverside, he has a complete rundown of the installation and where to get the vent kit at the best price. If I can find the link, I'll post it here when I do, and we just did the install on two 2015 RT's and they look like they came from the factory. Here's the link: http://www.spyderlovers.com/forums/s...ght=side+vents Good luck.

    I picked them up at the Can Am Dealer in Greenville, TX. We were on a ride and stopped by and thought I would see if they had them. They actually had 3 sets in stock. If you are needing their info shoot me a PM and I can look it up.

    I tried to send the following message to Doc - Riverside, but getting error message - Sorry gstwt60 you must have 1 posts in order to send PM's. I normally don't post anything, instead prefer to search if there is an existing thread already with the information.

    I'm looking to install the Can-Am Spyder Rt Vent Kit 219800388 and per the forum it looks like you are the guy to go to for installation instructions. I tried to see if there was a link with the instructions, but have not had any luck. Do you still have the installation instructions and in your opinion would they actually help with a 2011 RT model?

    I just installed the kit on my RT. I have the BRP instructions that include a lot of other stuff. I can send them to you if you like. PM me with your email address.

    A note for Canadians who might be reading this. I ordered my kit from a CanAm dealer in Canada, where I live, and it was cheaper that buying a US one.

    Look close for a couple of plugs in the vent. The screws are under them.

    They're attached to the body panel. Remove the body panel.

    So I don't need to remove them to get the body panel off?

    Sorry to chime in... I started to look (and found) the RT Vent kit. Some sites say send in vin# one site (bike bandit) says all RT models... Mine is 2012 RTS SE5... Should I pull the trigger and buy?

    I installed these last year on my 2012 Rt, very easy to do. it really makes a huge difference in the air flow and really lowers the temperature in the engine compartment.

    Interested in them, but, for physical reasons, can't install them. Got a quote from the dealer for 1 1/2 hrs. labor. Sound about right?

    There are 2 screws, one in each vent just before the mesh that need to be removed, then remove the panel like you normally would. The vent assembly will come off with the panel. Mine didn't come with instructions either. I fiddled with the pieces until they went together then figured out how to install them. I put the panel on my kitchen table and fiddled some more. Marking where to drill the attachment screws can be a bear. I missed a couple and needed to drill new holes, but the vent covers them. I didn't cut out the panel, just removed the stock grill and it performs as expected. Now I can put candy bars in the glove box and they don't melt. Pete did sent pics of how he did his. Thanks Pete.

    The instructions call for you to cut the opening larger. If you leave them with the original opening, they wont flow nearly as much air.
