Air intake height?

Could anyone tell me how high the factory intake is on a 2012 XTZ 1000? Is it around 32" off the ground? Also is there any good how to on snorkeling one of these?

Thanks

Welcome to the site. The air intake on your XTZ is behind your drivers seat, that would be close to 32". Several companies make snorkel kits, but a lot of the members built there own out of PVC Pipe and fittings. I used 2" PVC on mine. To do it yourself will run around 30-50 dollars in parts.

Yes it is around 32 inches maybe a lil higher. As for the snorkel kit. I have seen a few xtzs done but I do believe them to be home made. I haven't found a company that manufactures snorkels for the x!

I think the way the XTZ is set up, you would only need to d0 the Air intake, and the clutch air out. From what I can find out, the clutch air in is in the front of the machine.

I don't think I'd like them coming up through the dash, but the XTZ is a different animal! Wreck havic with a windshield!
