any kit you buy will have clamps with it all you do is put it together and then start it and cover the pipe if it is sealed it will stall. its up to you but either way you will be using clamps

i just redid my clamps and put a small bead of silicone on the id of the rubber and clamped it. works good. i have to say it is easy to do and you will save alot of money. if you buy a kit they will use the same stuff that MIMB snorks use and you will pay 2 or 3 times more.

Its easy Bro, and you'll learn alot about your Bike. And its a great way to save $$$$. Go the MIMB way.

Shoot man, go for it. I did my complete kit from start to finish in about 3.5 hours... And on top of that, my cuts are clean. Just take your time, get everything in place while test fitting, mark every piece before you start taking back apart to glue, then glue... It is nice to be able to stand back and say, "Yea, I did that" when you are done...

There's no difference. The only thing extra you have to do by using our instructions is cut the pipe to the right length, really easy... If you buy a kit all you're doin is paying somone $200 to cut a few pieces of pvc & put it in a box for you. That's it. So save ur money, get the parts at the store & do it. When you're done you'll think, man that was easy, and I saved a BUNCH of money.

why are you worried about clamps? you rely on the factory ones. heck you reuse a few of them. there's no difference.

snorkeled brutes have been proven all over the world. they work and they dont leak!

I've got a quick question for you guys that did snorkels. What vent tubes/lines do you need to mess with or relocate to waterproof the engine? What connections should be waterproofed as well?

By the way, the snorkels are really easy to do. I followed extreme snorkels way but it's basically the same as MIMB. Like said, just take your time cutting cause i've boogered up two of the black shroud pieces below the handlbars.

haha ^extreme i remember those guys

with you having a carbed bike, you will need to run up:gas tank vent
radiator overflow
both carb vents (run both into a plastic T then run the 3rd leg of the T to the pod)
diffs are done but could be ran higher i guess.

In addition to vents, you need to put dielectric grease in every connector you can find on the bike. every single one. also pull the plug boots off the plug, squirt some inside the boot and put it back on the plug.
