2005 Suzuki LTZ-250 - Snorkel?

Recommended Posts

I am thinking about snorkeling my ltz-250. I was wondering if anybody has ever snorkeled a ltz? I took some pictures of how I want to run it. I just dont know what size I should use. It is going to be a homemade snorkel made from "pvc pipe". This first picture is where I want the snorkel to come out of the air box. Then is will run from the to where the second picture is. Then "through/under" the front fender. And Finally up by the front. Thanks for any advice.

Thanks, LTZRider

i've never seen any pics of an ltz done up, nor i have i seen any 'kits' available online ...

usually they use 1 1/2" to 2" pipe. the airbox and all the pipe has to be water tight, alot of work

and big gamble, IMO. jetting has to be re worked also. i know it would be cool to be different tho ...

if i was to play in the water with a sport bike, i'd be putting paddle tires on the rear and trying to

stay above the water rather than in it ... but that's just me.

there are alot of tutorials on youtube for snorkels projects if you want to better understand ...

Thank you for the information! I am still considering it. There honestly is only a few mud holes deep enough for a snorkel around here, but I would be the baddest four wheeler in the neighborhood! lol I wanna do it! just about money right now!

    • Kymco Maxxer 450i aka AC 450 XC - Snorkeling

      Hello everyone. My first post as a new owner to my first atv. I have a 2012 Kymco Maxxer 450i, which as I have found, is basically an Arctic Cat 450 xc. I just bought the atv and will be bringing it home from my cousins house, where i stored it after my first river test run, tomorrow. During my test run, I got it in about a foot to foot/half of water and got the belt soaked, and of course lost all power. I was able to fix it by popping off the cvt exhaust tube and revving the engine a bit, but this is a problem I need to fix...Before next weekend...I have a big river trip planned that will last the whole weekend. So, the AC/Kymco sucks in water...and for the life of me I cant seem to find a good video or guide on how to snorkel it. Am I to assume everyone just goes at it blind and just figures it out as they go? I dont want to pay $200 for someones pre-packaged pvc tubing, but it would be nice to find something that covers this topic. Tomorrow after work I will get a better idea of it once I have it in my garage. But I want to also know, do I have to snorkel the intake and exhaust vents? should I worry about the airbox as well? I actually have only seen the cvt exhaust vent so I dont know where the others are taking air from. I would love to see some examples of people snorkeling their AC/Kymco atvs so I can kind of plan where I should run my tubing. And I want to try and avoid cutting into my plastics...if possible. I also cant seem to find a replacement for the rubber hose that comes off the cvt, just encase I want to cut it and put it back to stock later to sell. Id like to see how much they cost first lol. Aside from this main questions, any tips or tricks I should know about this model before I spend the weekend putting it through hell? Should I run premium fuel? Yes, I am a noob to all this. I have ridden many ATVs, I have just never owned one. My cousin has like 7 or 8 of them so I have always been able to ride his. Now its time for me to learn lol. Thank you!

    • Thinking of buying a Honda 500 pioneer in the future

      I'm really considering this utv. Before any negative comments about this machine remember I did everything I wanted with a 250 Ozark. My 09 rubicon was over kill. I'll use it for snow plowing bulldozing logging and cruising. So I can spend 8,500 on a ruby or the 500 pioneer.

      Was using the quad the other day to shuttle wood from my pickup to my wood pile.  When the job was done I turned off the Quad and heard a bit of a racket from the front end.  When I got down underneath the sound seemed to be coming from the fan housing.  fan was moving in spurts and not quickly... much like a computer case fan that's had it's day.  What I know.
      Temp sensor is ok, as the fan tries to activate fan is getting some voltage as it is attempting to spin.  When I first bought it used I tested the fan direct to battery and it was fine. The fan was working ok even not direct wired as I went on a couple of rides and when stopped and idling the fan did run Seems to be free spinning with my finger read up in the manual and they require me to drop the rad.  now I'm not opposed to that as the rad has some damaged areas I want to try and straighten out.  But if I can get the fan working without, I can leave the rad as it is until next year.
      Fan assembly is about 300 bills, any work arounds or alternatives?  I even thought large computer case brushless fan.  smaller ones are about $7 larger ones better quality probably far below the 300.  They run standard 12v DC.
      Anything I should be doing before dropping the rad... other than check for obstructions even though it seems to spin, and trying to hardwire it to the battery again for a test to see if it acts the same?
