Just curious if anyone has successfully snorkeled their 500 by themselves yet? Or, do I need to look into a kit?

I just finished putting one on mine like 10 minutes ago. I made it myself from spa tubing and pvc mainly. Wasn't that hard took me about 2 hours, I ran it and it doesn't seem to have any real affect on performance, and only cost me $30. I will try and post some pics soon.

I will get some pictures up later today. I took it out yesterday for the first time and tested it. I took it easy at first, but in no time I was floating with water over the racks and the engine didn't even studder. I kept checking the air box to make sure and it stayed bone dry the entire time. Performance wise it didn't seem to rob any power from it at all. I think it was the best $30 i could hav spent.

Yeah we usually are out at the black hole. I usually park at the shooting range and ride around. I might run up to 5a on sunday though. My wife has to work, so if I do it will be by myself, ny buddy that i normally ride with is working too.

Snorkeling my 450ES cost less than $30 from home depot/lowes etc.. IT took me longer to think of designing it than to install it.I didnt even have to jet it untill i put exaust on it,thats when the 2 together needed a fatter jet size....P.S buy lots of plumber goob(clear)and use on internally and external connections,dieletric grease on plg boot and coat coil assembly.I also found that putting a small screw in the end of float drain hose helps alot(sucking in water occurs and makes idle stumble sometimes)GOOD LUCK AND BE CREATIVE...
