2018 Teryx4 fuel vent mod

My son's Teryx4 is losing power once the engine heats up. The dealership adjusted the valves but no change in performance. In googling the issue I see the fuel vent being clogged as a possibility and the mod looks like something we should do anyway. I found one thread where it was mentioned the vent is actually under the center console or possibly front area. Has anyone done the fuel vent mod on a 2018? Any other suggestions on what could be causing it to lose power once it's warm? Thanks in advance for any advice.

Just did the mod on my 19, only has 24 miles on it but thought it would be a good thing to do right away to avoid future problems. Ran the vent to behind the e-brake handle under the console.

I just did it on my 19, super easy mod. Just pop the passenger seat bottom off and you will see where the OEM fuel vent tube goes in to the metal frame. Just pull that out of there and extend the hose to a higher location. I used the kit from Brute Performance and they have you run the fuel vent behind the plastic on the back of the passenger seat, so it ends up about shoulder height if you were sitting there.

Question on this fuel vent mod. Do any or all of you have a pressure buildup released when removing your fuel cap? If so, what job is this fuel vent doing?

The vent is to keep from creating a vac. as the fuel level goes down. Need to put a inline filter on it to keep dust out.

Every kit I've seen for the fuel vent mod includes a filter, but I get your point. However, the filter does keep the mud-dobbers from clogging it up
