My Buddy has an 05 Rancher, very lightly used, low miles, very clean...

Anyway, She is wanting to Snork it for the upcoming creek season. I tried the search function on here, just puttin a feeler out to see if anyone has any advice.

Yes, assuming it is similar to the 420's. There is a grommet/rubber adapter where the intake goes into the airbox. You will want to pull this out and silicone it, then put it back in. 1.5" pvc should fit perfectly. All you will need is a stick of pvc, a few bends, some glue and primer, 3/16"??? tubing(not certain of the size), tubing connecters (i believe there are 4 lines but please double check this), and some zip ties. You can run the pvc forward from the airbox, come out the opening in the bodywork and up the "crease" of the fender, under the rack and up. It is very easy to do, just fit all the pieces together before gluing anything. Connect the vent lines and run them between the tank and plastics and bring them out through the opening in the front fender where the rack attatches. Run them up the snorkel and attatch with the zip ties. Silicone the airbox lid and put di-electric grease on the electrical connections including the spark plug. You could also cut the plastics if you want, but it not necessary. I did my son's 420 rancher this way and it was easy to do, works great, and there are no holes in the plastic.

A how to with pics would be a good idea. It is actually pretty easy, but i think some pics it would help people out a lot. I should have taken some when i did mine.
