    Holy cow!! The install was every bit of a 12 hour job for pretty much anyone who hasnt installed this particular kit. I've done many kits and consider myself fairly mechanically inclined in this line of work. This kit was WORK! But I got it. I went with the stealth kit being that I have my tripple flow on the rack , and the heighth of my 6" lift and 32s I really don't think I need the risers too... The hardest overall part of the job was cutting the pod and shaping there hoses to fit around and under the gas tank and up into the headlight fixture.at the end of day two I am more than satisfied with the hidden "stealth" look. It seems clean and stock and keeps the neatness of the bike IMO. I soliconned everything that could be done, the only thing I did not do was pull the clutches off and get from the motor to the belt housing. I did however seal the box. Al from triangle stopped by the house and told me that if my kit leaks anywhere at all behind the clutches is where it would be, and to take it to them if my belt snorkels do leak. The kit came with everything I needed besides zipties, siliconn, and door trim for the sharp edges on the frame where the. H hose may rub. The kit consisted of an installation DVD, heavy duty flex hose that can be shaped to fit almost anywhere, a couple 90s, a airbox lid, dieletric grease, and some hose. I will post more when I ride it this weekend at sabine atv park for new years. I just wanted to do a little review on the install in case there is any curious fools put there like me wanting to snorkel there Polaris 800. Because I couldn't find a thing when I asked... Sorry for the long post!

    I just did a snorkel job on a 700 sportsman today. I used the 1.5" spa hose from lowes and the RDC airbox lid piece. The entire job went well and I was done with everything but the risers in less than 2 hours. I am going to let the silicone sit overnight and then mount the risers and fabricate a bracket for them in the morning. The only part I am not happy with is with the plastics back on you can see the blue/black spa hose where I routed it in front of the CVT cover down by the dipstick and radiator overflow bottle. I am doing it for someone else and I would paint them black if it was mine but he said they are fine and to just leave that part the way it is.
    The parts from lowes hit him for about 125 and the 75 for the RDC piece plus the 100 for me and this bike will have a really good snorkel setup for 300 so if you can do it yourself you don't need a kit and you can do it for 200 or a little less without risers (stealth).

    Haha yea I was gonna get my buddy who lives in Texas to drop it off to triangle until I heard the installation price, but about half way through I was kinda wishing I did let them do it.

    i did my triangle kit in about 2 hours. it did take alittle time with cutting out the bottom of the headlight pod for the hoses to fit, but that is where the dremel can in handy.
    This is the first time i have used a triangle kit, and i have had some worries about the belt not getting enough air to keep it cool? I guess it will be fine or they wouldnt sell it.

    how is the stealth kit working out. not causing any bog or hesitation. you getting enough air through the pod. i was always worried that the kit wasnt high enough, seeing that 2 of the snorkles only come to the bottom of the pod and would suck water when pretty deep.

    Well thought out kit. I have had mine on my 2009 800 for about a year and a half. I think the install took me about 6 hours. Make sure you pay close attention to all the places that the hose could rub on though. I had an issue with the shifter linkage rubbing on the hose on the right side of the gas tank and putting a small hole in it. I called Triangle and asked if they had ever heard of this happening before and they said no. So I kinda decided that it might be my error, and while talking with them on the phone I ordered 3 ft. of hose from them.  They sent me the hose for free and only charged me shipping. So, in short, great kit and great customer service. Just take your time and pay attention to the little details during install.
