Finished shot. No cutting was required and it is easily removed for those picky dealers that don't like to warrenty stuff with snorkles.

I unbolted the baffle and made a plate that fit over the muffler end and drilled the holes where the snorkle will bolt up to the rear of the muffler. I did have to get longer bolts though. It works great motor nver dies in the water anymore. I also used 1/4 plate to make the attachment to the muffler and because of the thickness I did not need to make a support for the snorkle. $10 for the muffler pipe to be bent up for me.

No, It did not need a brace, because I used that 1/4 plate. I you use anything thinner to make the plate on the muffler then I would suggest a brace. Also I have rode it for a hundred plus miles and it is still the same. I have even been run into on the trail by some over zealous people and it is still fine.

I have an 05 Foreman that drowns even when yer into the throttle. no water in the airbox, so I must be getting it up into the muffler. I like your snorkel, but I don't have the engine dying like that on the rancher. If I'm in the throttle, how does the water get in?

some 05+ foremans are great in the water stock, and some just suck. When mine was stock it wouldn't do anything but stall in the water, it was very frustrating.

I've had mine very deep w/o a snorkel. Since Everyone around here has one. You have to be sure to grease the sparkplug, run the carb ventlines to the headlight pod and plug the carb drain. Those are musts if you want to run deep.

Hmmm....interesting. Never knew that one. I am relatively new to this, so I am always learning. Both the rancher and foreman are totally stock, except for the 589's. I guess they all have carb vents and how come the drain needs plugged? Is it an overflow as well? I figured the screw needed to be loosened for draining.
