What I did was "borrow" my buddy's snorkel (Robb) who was borrowing my stock tires to take his to the dealer. Now I have a snorkel already made for mine!

But seriously he posted some pics in the How to forun on how he did his. It is pretty simply as logs as you don't mind makeing a lot of cuts, fitting and refitting.

My snorkle goes into the airbox w/ a 1.5" streer eblow an a fair amount of plumbers goop to make sure it doesn't leak. Then runs 1.5 to infront of the head into 2". Through the inner fender and fender mounting to the rack. You will need some of the 22.5 deg elbows in addition to a couple 90 and few 45s, a 2" rubber coupling and 2" rubber 90 coupling. Along w/ 1.5 and 2" pipe. and how ever you want to mount it to the rack.

His yellow '05 is pictured throught the Forum.

There are vent lines from the differentials, rear brakes and fan. these need to be extended to the headlight pod or the handlebars (you can "T" these together to save on hose.. The Carb has two vents wrapped on top of it. Extend thos eto the same place Make sure thes are not kinked they need to vent to the atmosphere. On the bottom of the carb there is a drain. When you know you are going to be riding in water plug then end of it w/ a screw or golf tee. THere is a check valve on it, but it will fail or just fall of as mine did.

I had already put in a jet kit from my pipe and filter, but I did not have to make any adjustments to the carb w/ this snorkel. The 500s do no thave an adjustable needle like the 450s either.

I just got home from work & saw that our Dynojets got here today,
well, yesterday. I opened them up & the instructions look pretty
strait forward. I think it said to use the 126 jet for the elevation we
are in. I don't know if that will work with the Snorkit, HMF, & K&N air
filter. I will give it a try & see what happens.

Dyno jet should gives you two jet recomendations per elevation level. one for stock pipe/filter and one for aftermarket /high flow.

Post them up when you can. Water wheeelies are an art form around here.


Congrats and good work.
