Polaris Slingshot Extended Range Hood Hinge Assist Kit by DDMWorks
If you've ever done work on your Polaris Slingshot engine bay, you've quickly noticed that the stock hood angle minimizes your ability to get in and work on your engine. This brilliantly designed kit from DDMWorks fixes that issue by replacing your factory hood scissor hinge with a billet aluminum extended range kit that allows your hood to open several inches further, to almost a full 90 degree angle. The kit also comes with a hood strut that allows you to slowly close your hood to avoid slamming the hood down each time. The kit has two fixed positions to allow you to open the hood angle from "mild" or "wild" depending on your intentions.


DDMWorks Extended Range Hood Hinge Kit Features:

  • Machined Billet Aluminum Hinges with Black Powder Coating
  • Extends hood rake allowing you to easily work under the hood
  • New aluminum hinges increase durability and increased strength
  • 2 hood resting positions allow for Mild or Wild view of the engine bay

My red sling
Had someone else install, bit according to them installation wasn't too bad. I just know it is soooooo much easier to open the hood now and the guy that installed it has worked on quite a few and he said he really likes how it allows hood to open more to gain better access to the front of the slingshot. Worthwhile purchase for me!!

more room
This was a really easy install if you read the directions first LOL. I wasn't paying attention and put the brackets on the wrong side ooops. This is a really good product. Now I can reach the supercharger tubes without taking the hood completely off. This mod gives you the option to working on your SL without removing the hood.

works as described
Install not too tough, you do need two people, three would be better to get the hood off and on. Not tough, just a little awkward. Think shocks on both sides would be better, give a more even feel when opening and closing. The extra room is really nice, and the half open look will be good for car or bike shows. See how they do over the test of time.

A must have!
You would not believe how much easier it is to open, close, AND remove the hood. A must have if you are a DIY person or like showing off the Slingshot in it's entirety. Installation took about 1.5 hours with my wife! And she even thinks it's way better! Simple secure mod. A must have if you plan modifications at any time. Spend the money. You won't regret it (neither will your dealer/maintenance person - they loved it for ease of scheduled checks).

Much Easier to install mods!
I've always thought the hood had issues on the Slingshot.. i'm glad to see I wasn't alone. I like that there are two hood stop locations, so that you can open your hood slightly or open her all the way up :)~ The fully open option allows you much more room when installing mods in your engine bay area. Always pleased with the service i receive from the guys at Slingmod. Keep the goodies coming.. it's like xmas all year long for me!
