Only thing I had problems with is cutting the black piece for the three holes the snorkel comes up through.

Yeah the hardest part is getting the plastic piece where they come through to look decent... if you take your time and plan carefully before cutting, you can make them look halfway decent.. LOL...

That's the part I'm most worried about.I bought a 2" holesaw with pilot drill bit.Hopefully I can cut it straight!!!!

Did you guys go with the rubber couplers?Or straight pipe?I'm gonna go with the couplers.

Also,did you run the vent lines higher,or leave them where they are?

rubber couplers are the shiznit, cuz you can change the tops when you want... plus it makes it easier to remove the plastics... and it helps in case of an accident, it makes them flexible right there so they don't break, or whatever... personal experience, I was coming up a little hill and I was standing up on the 4 wheeler, and when the front end bounced up at the top the snorkels hit me in the chest, and it hurt... I'm glad I had the rubber couplers there cuz it would have hurt worse if they would have been solid... LOL

Okay,worked on the snorkels this weekend.I seem to have run into a problem where I least expected.I can't get the plastics on the right side to fit right.Is the plastic by your leg sticking out on anyone elses'?????

did you do the CVT exhaust exactly like the instructions? If so, you should not have any problems. got any pics of yours?
monsterbrute7502010-08-11 12:21:51 +0000 #8
I don't have any pics.I followed the mimb instructions.I spoke to meangreen360 and he said you have to get everything lined up perfectly against the frame and tie wrap the crap out of it.I'm gonna try that.Thanks!!

I ran into the same problem, had the exhaust line a little bit off the frame and its really tuff too get the plastics back on it now, gotta start with the back bolt and work forward with a little persuasion,

Mine sticks out a little bit.
