Thumbs up

Hey guys. I have an 07 Grizzly 700 DU edition and I really love mud ridin. I know the intakes and everything are already pretty high from the factory but I am seriously considering snorkeling my bike. Mostly because im scared to death of floodin my wheeler. I want to be able to play in the water with no worries. Does anybody have any pointers for me??? Ive never snorkeled a wheeler before but my friend has done a million. Any advice is greatly appreciated. Thanks.

Well, from experience...I had mine past the pod in water and I did not get water anywhere.

I wish I had pictures...but of course there will be another time.

It is really hard to get water in the bike unless you stall out (it goes up the exhaust) or you are just putting around.



I want to do snorkels, but my rule of thumb is that I will do it when I NEED it. I haven't got water in anything yet...so I'm not doing it. Same w/ my rad relocation.

I filled my belt case on one ride when i hit a hole i could'nt see. I didn't get anything in the air box because I was still not deep enough. I also was wondering about snorkleing the tranny. I got alot of mud and sand in my clutch and it was alot of work to clean out. If anyone has pictures of how to snorlke the 700 tranny post them please.

I have 07 Grizz and recently snorkeled bike. In my opinion there is no need to by a kit for $100-$150, you can get everything you need at Homedepot or Lowes. It's pretty easy if you take your time and realize fitting the pipes out requires a little trial and error. Biggest thing is cut and fit everything, take a look, mark the fittings before using any pipe glue. I have a "3" pipe set-up, all coming out of the right fender top within the rack. It looks tight and is very functional, running the intakes close to a foot over the factory setup (which is great by the way). 1 1/2" pipe seems to work great on mine with out restricting air flow or compromising cool temps. No plastic was altered execpt were snorkel exits top of fender. I'm happy and feel better when in the deep. If there is more interest, will try to post some pics. I haven't had this setup for more than 120 miles of use so I don't know if there will be any long term effects yets to the power plant. I like the mud so I'll take my chances for now.

send me a message and I&#39;ll send you directions and parts list on how to snorkel your tranny. There are pics in my signature of how to snorkel your air intake. The 3/4 snorkel that you see in my pics is a piece of conduit that I ran my vent lines in.

I did mine at the bars. I&#39;ve herad when you get past the kill switch it dies. It shorts out...I dunno though.

After mine gets past the rack it is hard to drive...gets tippy, so IMO my snorkels are the perfect height for me

IMO it is insurrance.

When you hit that "oh crap" hole.

It&#39;s nice not having to worry about getting anything in your belt/transmission AT ALL.

Nice!! Looks like the bottom left hand pic, you&#39;re just about an inch away from water going into your airbox though.... probably a close call!
