Honda Recon Snorkels!!

12 posts in this topic

I'm sure you have all wondered about snorkels on your ATV and I have finally went for it and made dual snorkels for my ATV.

My quad, like most, comes with a factory snorkel So I removed that and put some 1.5" PVC out of it with two 45 degrees to get around the engine like so:

Then I continued off of that with a straight piece going by the engine and into the fender

then in the fender I used 3 90 degrees to clear make sure the wheel never rubs on it.

I dont have a good pic but I used a T pipe at the top part to split it into a dual snorkel (I had a single but the dual made a difference by giving it all the airflow it needed)

Here is a picture of the whole assembly if you are having trouble visualizing it

After all that I painted the PVC black then used clear tubing (refrigerator water line) to extend the factory vent lines from the rear drum and differential. This is very important...

here are some finished pictures (I dont have any from the OHV park but they have passed the creak test :D)

Im plenty happy with my mudlites especially with the mixed terrain I ride on.. and I didnt modify the engine at all for the snorkels.

And yes, before winter I greased all of the connections... funny story, before I got the mudlites I got stuck in deep water and my winch was able to pull me 20 feet to the shore... while completely submerged!

Sweet snorkel setup. I was wondering how easy it would be to do this. Is it recommended that you also do the vent lines when you do this? I saw yours attached to the snorkels.

Thanks!

I was able to make and install these snorkels in one day so its not a very difficult project and yes you do want to extend your vent lines so you dont get water in your brakes (first line) or in your differential (second line) and mixed in with the diff fluid
