Tunnel Closer Kits (rear)
This aluminum plate closes off the big hole in ’07 and ’08 tunnels. This tunnel closer kit eliminates snow pack under the seat and exhaust area which melts and accumulates on the inside and outside of tunnel and foot boards only to freeze up again. This creates four problems: weight gain, slippery floorboards, snow covered rider and track interference. This can lead to track failure. Keep the snow under the tunnel where it belongs. Nice fit and finish for your phazer and you won’t believe how clean and dry you and your sled will stay.
We would like to clear up the myth about the exhaust needing to be cooled by the big hole. This is not true. Does your ATV or dirt bike have a problem in 90 plus degree weather? Yamaha has all the heat shields in place to combat this problem. The side shields that they sell are a band aid and don’t fix the problem. At SBM we like the naked look Yamaha was shooting for and believe in retaining the minimalist look. This closer plate from SBM comes pre-drilled and ready to install. Kit comes with tunnel closer plate, rivets and instructions. This kit will totally protect your aftermarket exhaust from ice, snow, and trail debris.
