    Jegs 28K heater install X2

    Installed my in cab heat system. Probably one of the most PITA jobs I've ever done on a side by side. The amount of bolts, push rivets, and plastic that had to be removed was unreal. Biggest issue was the front 3" vents should have really been 2.5" with the Y connector. The defrost was 2.5" and was perfect for routing it.

    As it is 3" flex house running two of them doesn't fit through the center console area back to the heater. It's like trying to stuff 10lbs of shit in a 1lb space. So I ended up using an 3" to 2.5" adaptor and running 2.5" back to the heater. I was able to get the 3" and 2.5" flex hose ran back to the heater with some interesting routing. The whole system should really be done with 2.5". The 3" is overkill and not needed.

    I tied into the coolant system with the radiator hose directly behind the coolant overflow with the Y assembly. The other Y assembly was tied into the hose on the drivers side back near the oil cooler.

    10ft of 5/8" heater hose I picked up at autozone.

    Used a plastic storage container I got from walmart that fit perfectly under the seat and for the heater to prevent dust being ingested into the heater. The only thing exposed is directly in front of the heater for venting.

    Used a jig saw to cut the defrost vents in. Put some blue painters tape down to prevent scratching your dash.

    Used a 3" hole saw to drill the front vents.

    Wired it using a marine switch on/off/on just using medium and high from the heater. Location is right of the instrument cluster. I didn't want to install the stupid switch control they sent.

    Power was run directly to the battery from the marine switch which is fused with a 10amp fuse.

    Also Yamaha should be ashamed of the stupid rivets they use trying to get them out. I believe I had maybe a handful that would actually screw out with a standard screwdriver. Save yourself the hassle for future work and order these push rivets. Much easier to use and takes half the time.

    Also installed a piece of ABS plastic directly in front of the radiator using velcro strips on each tube rail next to the radiator for easy removal. Measurement was 12" wide by 11" high. It can be removed with the hood off through the large access hole. Used the other sheets sealing off drivers/passenger fender wells.

    Heat works amazing. It was too hot even on medium. However was a mid 30 degree day out. It will really be nice during sub zero weather.
    I was able to build the whole system for under $275.

    Follow my coolant bleeding procedure which was completely painless.

    I literally just did the EXACT same heater in my X2. I still need to build a block off plate for the rad, but it works good. Air temps in the mid 20s and the coolant wouldn't get much above 170° idling and some flat running in the driveway. So I don't know how well it works under a better load.
    That 3" flex for the vents is ridiculously tough to fit! I did end up making it all fit tho. I'll post a couple pics of mine in my build thread in the next couple days
    Glad to hear it works great tho!!

    Make sure you block off the drivers side fender well area as well. More importantly around the steering shaft. I also did the passenger side. With the radiator block I was rolling around today 30 degrees and my temps around 190. I have my fan set to come on at 197. Never would warm up without the radiator block in cold weather. I get zero dust in my cab. Seriously pumps out some heat. Just as good as any car would.

    I built inner fenders at the same time. That steering shaft is more like a wind tunnel!

    Yes it is. Amazing how much air moves through that area. With my radiator block now and having engine temps above 180 that 28K heater will roast you out of it. Be plowing snow in my t-shirt this winter. lol

    Is there valve to turn off the coolant flow through the heater in warm weather?

    No valve however you just never turn on the heater fan in the summer so not an issue.

    Plus if need be (in really hot conditions) it can serve as an extra cooler.

    Yes, that would help for sure. I was just wondering if in really hot conditions heat would some out the vents even with the fan off. Either way I will be getting one because it will extend my riding an extra two or three months. And the Wife will be real happy about it.

    No heat is coming out the vents in the summer with the fan off. The center 3" vents close completely anyway if you want. Then the defrost vents you could cut a piece of black duct tape and tape off the vents for when your power washing your X2 and just leave them sealed off until fall/winter.
