Hi Im looking for a snorkel kit for my 2013 700 grizzly. does anyone know if the is one out there that is good. Im working on doing a rad relocate at the same time :getrdone:
Hey Im new here but I see tons of posts where people are adding air pressure to help float tires. I’m sorry but this makes no sense to me. Floating is about how much water you displace vs the weight of what you displaced it with. 1 cubic foot of atmosphere at sea level weighs 1.3 grams. So the more air you stuff in a tire, the more it will weigh, and the less it will want to float. Think of a full oxygen cylinder with 2000 psi in it…it hardly floats at all. The optimal float pressure would be whatever pressure the tire stops stretching in size and juse starts cimpressing the air. My guess would be around 7 to 9 maybe. Or am I totally wrong???
Anyone ever done a grizzly 350 stealth snorkel? Basically looking to snorkel the belt, maybe up front intake and exhaust ports, one on each side of the speedometer? Seem to me that those are the week points of the system, especially the belt exhaust. If you water whèelie doesn’t it pretty much go right to the belt? And if you have a bow wave does it just flow over fenders or will it get into the intake as well. I don’t go water ridong, but if the dogs bay a hog across a creek…you cam be dam sure I will plow through it. Sorry this is my first grizzly.
Been working with my son on a snorkel for his 01 600 Grizz. As you can guess space was a major issue but I think I came up with something that might just kill a couple of birds with one shot. I decided to use 1 3/4 steel exhaust pipe to plumb everything to the 2 in PVC tubes that come up through the front rack. I have a new Miller MIG and he is getting better and better with it the more he does. I wanted to go with just two stacks so here is what we came up with. Left tube is just for the CVT intake and routes just under the shifter and above the(useless) pull starter. On the right of the bike I ran the carb tube down along the head to where the CVT exhaust is and put a big rubber tee that connects the exhaust from the CVT to the carb intake tube and then out to the front of the bike for the second tube. The 1 3/4 exhaust pipe is smaller in OD than PVC or anything else I found but still has a good inside diameter for flow. I read some of the posts up here about running the CVT to the carb and the issues it posed but this one is in a tee not closed one to another. My thinking is it just adds a little available flow to the carb intake and not the only supply. Also, the 1 3/4 exhaust pipe is small enough to route into the stock airbox using the original rubber airbox snorkel. Or half of it any way. We got it all put together and are working on the vent lines now. I think it looks great and it runs fine in the shop but we have not had it on a test drive yet. He says he is going to drive it in the river for a test. Guys at the boat ramp are going to think we are nuts. They are probably right. Main reason for the post is to find out what you guys think of adding the air from the CVT to the carb. Around here it is real sandy and dusty so we have to keep our filters cleaned out about every trip any-way so a little dust from the belt,I hope, shouldn’t be a issue. Seems like if the belt was going to put off that much debris it wouldn’t last as long as it does. I will post some pics as soon as he gets it finished up and put back together. One more thing I wanted to ask. I ride a Polaris and my CVT really puts out a lot of air when I rev it in neutral. You can hear it and it sounds like a turbine. My sons Grizzly doesn’t put out hardly any air in neutral. I don’t know if it does when it is in gear or not. Maybe it isn’t turning the fan till it is in gear? Just thought I would ask. I have a new belt to put on it but was going to wait till after he tests the bike in the water to put it on. I will look at how the fan works then but figured you all could tell me to ease my mind.
So i started my Homemade 4 stack 1.5" ID Flex PVC hose snorkel. My question is… or concern is all of the vent lines,
I was going to make a 5th Stack for all of the vent lines, But i dont know how i feel about running the overflow for the gas and coolant into a stack with the lines for Fan, Carb and Diffs air lines.. any suggestions? I was going to cap the bottom of this stack with some sorta drain plug. But in general, You would never want any sorta liquid near those "breather" lines. What has everyone else done?
Has anyone ever run the dual snorkels on a 350? like the ones in the picture. And if so how did you do it/what supplies and how much
Do I need to put dielectric grease on my connections when I snorkel my four wheeler? And what are the pros and cons of not doing it, what will happen if I don’t?
I don’t think this is pool tubing because not like any I have. This looks like some type of heater hosing. It’s nice because it’s thin. There are a few pieces of it on my 660 and I’d like to get some more. Anyone know what this is?
