Tunnel Protectors?

Do you need to install tunnel protectors in a 2011 F-8 Sno Pro Limited??
Trying to decide what to purchase and cant find any info on if they are needed. Thanks

The 2011 arcticwear aacessories books saids the tunnel protector kit is required when installing studs on the following models. It didn't list the F series. But I would double check with an arctic cat dealer. Good luck.

'09-11' CF, CFR part #4639-968
'08-11' F 570, T 570 part #4639-771
'09-11' BC 570

Tunnel protectors are built right into the sled. Heat exchanger tubes running the lenght of the tunnel are right over the track windows. It is pretty brilliant.

As long as you stay with the recommended stud length for your lug depth you should be fine with the stock protectors

Not to mention how good they work at keep ice buildup from becoming an issue. It really is a brilliant design. There are many riders on other models and brands that would love to have this in their tunnels.
