Post Snorkel Input
thinking of adding a snorkel to the honda sometime . any input ? im not one to go out & purposely try to kill the old girl but i also dont like to turn around either . ive had water deep enough to know i was close to my limit . ive been looking at the highlifter kits but im wondering if most people buy a kit or just piece one together themselves ? also the kit supposedly come with every little line & check valve you need for everything . its around 100$ , i know its mostly just pipe & tubes so a little advice would be great .

If you have time, buy a bunch of black abs from lowes and get to creating, and take back what you don't need. you might be able to find a parts list of stuff to buy. I will look around for you.

I bought a Triangle Atv kit from highlifter for my 420 rancher. It came with everything you need to waterproof the whole rig. Also came with a detailed installation video. I talked to one of the salesman at highlifter, and he claimed the triangle kit had the highest quality parts of any of them. But you could also buy MOST of the stuff in the kit as hobbz said. I'll probably make me own for my backup 300, but I chose to by the kit for my first install and main bike. I figure they have done the research on what is best. My kit is 2 in. and on the FI 420 with a pipe and filter it is running great without a programmer. It was long but hopefully helpful.

I think the triangle kit uses a flex hose doesn't it? If so, I have heard horror stories where it has got a hole in it and your snorkel becomes worthless....

Yea it uses I think a spa hose. It has done great so far. Its very thick and reinforced, but I do have plans on covering the 6-8 in. that are exposed with a wire mesh just so I feel better about sticks on the trail. Its all a gamble anyway movement and vibrations could loosen the glue on pipe.

I Just added a stealth snorkel to my 07 rincon and really like it, I found the way to run it off Rincon Riders.com under stealth snorkels search. It was real E-Z to install ,all the parts from Lowes for around $35 .You may want to check it out.

Post Re: Snorkel Input
I Went to aruara spas in Lexington and bought some pool/spa hose and it's about 1/8" thick very strong I don't see a stick or anything poking through it. It was $2 a foot then just went to lowes and bought a bunch of random 90's and 45's with a 5' stick of abs pipe I think it was like $18. Right now I'm trying to figure out how many snorkels I want to run and where and how? I hope to haveit done this weekend when I get some free time.

i followed the one on rzrforums. it worked perfect. yeah it is the black abs. make sure you get abs cement/cleaner not pvc cement. the cleaner will take the writing off the abs too for a clean look

I work for a insulation company and I think I'm gonna put 1/2" armaflex pipe covering on it for a cleaner look plus very easy to paint and protect from any engine heat or we have this stuff called 777 weather guard that's a 1/8" thick tar type adhesive with a foil jacket over it that I might wrap the pipe with that is under the plastics to make sure it's water tight that way if for some reason the hose or any abs doesn't hold up or comes lose a have a secondary adhesive to hold it together. Plus it with stands high temps also to protect from any engine heat and looks good!

I just found a bunch of reviews on the perfex , could you tell a big difference in your ride ? These reviews make it sound great . Having trouble finding an actual web site for them .

Seen folks have luck w/ flexible PVC. Glues to the same fittings as the rigid stuff but is easier to get into the awkward spot. Probably the spa stuff that mentioned Csmyj ^ there.
