I have a couple of 05 2wd Foreman's. I was wanting to snorkel so I would not be as afraid going thru ponds and stuff. I have a winch, but am realy only concerned about getting water into the intake. Would it be a complete waist for me to do so? Would it be beneficial to also have an exhaust snorkel? Please let me know what you think.

Thanks Vaughn... I figured alot of guys were in 2wd, or at least could be because the front wheels are always outta water. What are you thoughts on an exhaust snorkel?

i had a 2wd rancher and recon befor i got my foremans and both of them were snorkled and even on my foreman the only time that i am in 4wd is when i need it so its the same thing and for your exhaust snorkle i think that it is a good idea because if your bike for some reason shuts off under water you have nothing at all to worry about but if you turn the idle up alittle bit your bike should be able to run under water without a exhuast snorkle its your call

well...my recon 250 is only 2wd and it has both exhaust and airbox snorkeled. i would recomend doing the exhaust unless you really like doing wheelies (still can do wheelies but you have to be careful not to put the bike on the rear rack).....

i'd say do it!

i used to have a 2wd 300 snorkeled but i did not snorkel the exhaust just because it didnt shut off. if your bike shuts off then i would go ahead and snorkel it, it makes the bike sound better too. if you really dont want to snorkel the exhaust then like everyone else said just turn the idle up and you should be ok. if i was you i would snorkel the exhaust but its what ever you want to do.

When you guys snorkeled your bikes, did you have to re-jet? I currently have a stock exhaust, but plan on going to a HMF at some point.

i am having to repack my hmf. i believe i will add an exhaust snorkel just for certain rides that i love to go deep on. i will change my end cap for all other rides.

if you have to question whether or not to snorkle the intake do it. good just for insurance anyway. stock jetting should be fine with just that.
