Tunnel Extension Installation
- Remove rear bumper, snow flap as well as tunnel end cap. Loosen tail light from tunnelbracket and allow to hang out of the way.
- You now have a blank rear tunnel ready to accept the tunnel extension
- Begin by placing the tunnel extension inside of your existing tunnel. Push tunnelextension as far ahead as possible until it comes in contact with two extrusions that arefound in the top of existing tunnel. You can drill and place the rivets in several holes toassure alignment prior to actually attaching the extension with all rivets included.
- We have found that on the RMK and Switchback models, there is aluminum along the sidesof the tunnel that is of varying widths depending upon how much is ground out duringsnowmobile construction. You might need to do some filing or grinding of your own to get thetunnel extension to fit properly. See photo below for reference:
- On Indy 600 models, you will need to remove the studs from the light / bumper plate. Theyare tapped into place. Place the aluminum bracket over a socket and drive them out. Install studs into our plate as shown below:

- At this point, drill out the two holes on each side where the bumper used to be attached,insert and lightly snug them at this point, once triangular gussets are installed in next step, thenfully tighten.
- You will have received two triangular shaped pieces. These are to be placed between thetunnel extension and the existing tunnel as shown below (photo taken from inside of tunnel):
- With the top now riveted and secure and the two bolts starting to hold the sides in place,drill out the holes on the side of the tunnel to place the rivets in. Drill from inside of the tunnelfacing out using existing holes in tunnel extension.
- The snowflap can now be removed from the original mounting plate and reattached to thetunnel extension. The bumper can also be installed into existing holes in tunnel extension withbolts that originally held it in place
