Congrats! Did you have to rejet or mess with the carb at all?

How deep have you gone so far?

Did you run your carb vents up to handlebars + block off the overflow when riding in deep water?

I have an 04' Foreman w/ 589's also. It just got snorkled a few months ago and it made quite a difference! Be sure to turn off your gas when hauling it and even cover your snorkle or you will end up with gas in your air box like the rest of us have!

Yes I did route the vacum lines up to the handle bars. I also blocked off the carb drain. Thanks for the pointer about turning off the gas. I only rode one day but I had the whole bike under water except the head light and the snorkel and it never missed a beat. Then I pulled the air box drain and nothing came out so I think it was a very succesful snorkel. I like the way it came out by only putting a hole in the oil cooler trap box instead on the fenders. I can replace that trap door box for almost nothing.

I cant see anything wrong with either way PVC or Pool Vacum Hose. I prefered to use flexible pool hose to avoid any tight bends. It also made doing the job very simple for me. I really like not cutting up any of my plastic. I did not have to cut or trim not one piece. This is something to keep in mind when trying to sell a bike in the future. Take a look at my yahoo pics and you can see it is an extremly clean way of snorkling a bike. I did use heat wrap on the hose around the cylinder head to avoid and burns. I know this works as my buddie did his the exact way and he has been riding for a while now.

good work, I like!!! " title="Applause" /> I did try to use some shop vac hose and melted it, i tried some insulating tape and it melted right through. But I couldnt find any good tape. I see you are in Rockledge, you are nearby. Look in the SouthEast Forums and come meet up with us sometime!!
By the way, nice dragster

What size lift did you put on? I would like to see it I am thinking of lifting mine or putting longer shocks. Not sure what would be better.
