Thanks to swamprat for posting a very helpful parts list I now have a snorkel that is very similar to the one that Triangle ATV sells.

looks good, fine job. one suggestion on the vent tubes, i would loop the tubes and point them down. it'll help to make sure splashing water/rain doesn't find it's way in.

if im not mistaking arent you suppose to have 6 vent lines? 2 from the carb, 1 from the fan, 1 from the rear diff., 1 from the rear brake, and 1 from the front diff. I only see 4 in your picture

I used one tube for the Front and rear diff and rear brake vent, two for the carb vents and one fan vent.

looks great!! how are you liking you OutLaws?
I've only gone riding with them once and I liked them but all of the mud was so thick I could barely turn them in 4wd so I have a clutch kit ordered.

I always just turn the gas off and let it run till it shuts off, I would probably lose the tennis ball.

hey marcust, how long did it take you to take all the plastics off like your bike was in that pic...all naked and stuff??

was it hard to put back on?


if my plastics take any more abuse i think i will take them off like that and screw some diamond plating onto the sides of the frame...

that would be wicked...

that would be a real mudslinger!!!

if you do this make sure you remove the ball or cover before you try to start it. ive got a cover on mine and use it if it is raining when i trailer it. before i realized what was going on my carb overfilled and gas went into my airbox. then i couldn't get the cover off of my snorkel due to the vacuum that was created.

I use a 2" test cap to plug my snorkle when travelling. Bright orange so it's hard not to notice when I start my bike.

It probably took me about 1 1/2 hours to get it striped and I now hate those plastic rivits they are a pain in the ass. It was actually easier and took less time to put it back together. The reason I striped down like I did was to dielectric grease every electrical connection and seal up the pull starter, I should be able to put everything but the snorkel underwater and not hurt anything.

I like it to be clean when I work on it and I am the one with the camera so I never end up in the pics. Here is one pic before I made the snorkel where it is dirty you just can't see much of it.
