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

Very nice set up...do you have any pictures of your quad submerged?

the last thing I wanted to do was snap pictures in that situation hahaha, but I did take a pic after I got home...

      My four wheeler when i first got it seemed like it was very slow when i first got it and it had no throttle response so i replaced the belt and cleaned all of the rollers thinking that would solve the problem from what i read on the forums. well it turned out that it wasnt. so i went to the next thing i took out the injector to check it out and i seen that there was a tiny bit of debree in it so i cleaned it and it seemed to improve a little bit. but still did not solve the problem. i later found out how to find the trouble codes out from the lcd screen using a paper clip on the diagnostic port and it showed the code which stood for no codes C00. i also forgot to mention that the throttle position censor is working perfect. before i started all of this the four wheeler ran just not to its potential. after my friend and i did the trouble code test the bike wouldnt even start anymore and the injector would spray for a few seconds for the start up then it stops and the fuel injection light comes on and blinks. the four wheeler wouldnt start anymore. i took it over to the local shop and they hooked it up to the computer to see if there was any codes and it still showed it was free of codes. they hooked it up to the fuel pressure gauge and we found that it was making 22 pounds and it should be making around 43. i then bought a new fuel pump and put it in. it now starts and runs for a few seconds and then it stalls out and the fuel injection light comes on again. which then leads me to think it is the ecu now but i want to be sure before i invest around $500 more into it. any opinions on whether or not anyone thinks this is the problem or if they have had a similar problem before would be really appreciated. sorry for writing a novel and not spelling very well. also i forgot to put the year in the title it is a 2007

      Hi there everyone. Just seeing if there is advice on a problem I have before I start digging too deep. 
      I recently bought this creally nice 2004 King quad ltf300 with only 2400km..
      Everything things works great except when engaged into 4wd or diff lock it has a clicking noise ( sounds like broken teeth etc) are the front diffs known to blow?  Or the transfer from engine?
      I am yet to test on some loose ground to see if I'm getting drive at front .
      I will be driving in to find problem in next few weeks but thought I'd see if anyone might know what it is first. Cheers

      Hi guys I'm in the market for a new ATV.  I narrowed my choices down to King quad 750 Grizzly 700 and Rubicon 520,  I own a 2006 500 Rubicon right now and I like the reliability and power for plowing.  However it is not a capable ATV.  When quading with other guys it falls short with ride quality and ground clearance.   I also have a 500 King Quad 2015 which I like and will keep it for my wife.  It is very strong and reliable also.  However my plan is to sell my Honda Rubicon and replace it with a 2020 of one of the these mentioned above.  Can anyone give me their take on one or all of these machines and why you picked what you picked?

      Hello. I am a new member as of today. I had a quick question to ask. I recently was driving mt HONDA RANCHER 2004 GPSscape 400 and my display stopped working. I was driving the atv and all of a sudden the speedometer and the service lights went out. Also the lights stopped working. I am still able to shift gears, change from 2wd to 4wd, and can still select if I want EPS or Auto. I have checked my fuse box and have changed a few of them around. It did not change anything. I was wondering if anyone had any idea of what had happend. Thank you for your time- Trenton

      Hello all,
      I have brought an 84 TRX 200 back to life and unfortunately whomever dug into it first removed the two trim pieces that go around the gas tank.  I was thinking someone on the site may have an old parts bike with these pieces lying around.....  If so, drop me a message and we can make a deal.  I just want to complete the bike!
      Thanks,
      Jason

      I have a 1988 300 Honda FourTrax, All wheel drive.
      My brother and I were fixing up this quad. We put a brand new battery and fuses in and it was running fine until we put the quad into reverse. As soon as it was put into reverse all of the electrical cut out and power wasn't making it to the head unit anymore and both of the brand new fuses popped. We figured there might have been a short from the starter or solenoids, but they are all working properly. At this point we don't know where to start looking for where the short could be. I'm just wondering if anybody has had the same issue or knows of similar issues that could cause these electrical shorts?

      Here's a great video that illustrates Honda's 2019 ATV lineup. You've got the TRX90X, TRX250X, FourTrax Recon, FourTrax Rancher, FourTrax Foreman, FourTrax Rincon, and Foreman Rubicon ATVs.
