Ok, guys who have done there own, post it up. I know we got one in the How To section, but any ideas you guys have. Ive been looking at mine and playing around a little. And im kinda stumped unless I start cuttin, and I really dont want to go there yet.
I am not sure but its probably 2" OD and 1.75 ID" Something along those lines. It will flow more air than a similar sized Pool/Spa hose, because it is inside is smooth. And the 500s need a lot of air with a stock jet of 162.5.
OH man those pics are bad. Sorry. My shop vac hose had a plastic end that was about 4 inches long. That is what I put in to the airbox. As you can see it is at an angle not straight up. Didn't mean to make them so big. Try resizeing them. Keep it at least 2" all the way. I am going to redo mine in 2 1/2 inch all the way soon.
YES. I did put a little RTV around all connections just to be sure. but yes right into the airbox. Did have to replace the small factory clamp with a larger one, at the box.
The only problem I see with the whole setup is it's not smooth bore hose.
I'm going to solve that prob soon. I'm going to use Food service hose. Extemly flexable but still smoothbore. the kind that caffeterias use to suck up all the old food in the dishwashers. Can get it in almost any size. Around $14 for 8 feet of 2"
I look at it this way. I think it is safer to have a snorkle than not to. You guys ride in the same stuff that I do. You ride in the same places that trucks with 44's and I've seen outragous stuff down in your area. imagine if you are just riding along and fall in to one of those 44 ruts. Bikes sunk. My snorkle stands 56" from the ground to the opening of of my snorkle. If water touches that it will kill the motor immediatly. no chance of it sucking water in that way. A little drainage of the air box and its good to go. I also have the exhaust snorkle. I could actually park it in the water and nothing should get in it. Not that I would do that.
But it will also make you a little braver than you should be.
