yea run 2 1/2 inch pipe if not it wont get enough air i had to put a jet kit on mine to make it run right again but runnin it i started out with flex hose up the right side and once i had it under the fender i put a pvc 90 on it and came on up with it and to make mine different and looks a little cooler i put a 45 on the top!

use 2 inch not 21/2 inch pvc but run it up like the factory snorkel (by the gas tank)and then up and between your racks i done this on my 04 rubi 500. yes you will have to rejet but it gave mine a lil more power oh and if you are thinkin about exhaust you may want to go ahead and do the exhaust an snorkel before you rejet just makes it easier/

yeah but if you are just wanting snork and no exhaust and not wanting to rejet, you have to run 1.5" all th way up to the fender then put a bushing and run 2" out the fender

as the stock intake comes just past the beginning of the gas tank cut it off there and start with a rubber boot coupler you can get in the pvc section. From there run pvc tight to the tank and you cut a hole in the inside fender. Once through the fender decide on where you want it coming up through the plastic and rack. I also used a rubber elbow coupler for th elbowgoing up. remember you will have to remove the snorkel for future service to the wheeler so adding these rubber boot couplers make it easy to remove and re-install. If you need pics let me know and i can post them

got it going on now.  Thanks for all the advice!  Did you guys take off the hose and clamps between the airbox, the carb and the intake and seal up with silicone?
