Ok. You guys that are snorkling your prowlers, how nessasary is it really to do it? I wont be doin much water or deep mud riding. So is the stock stuff good enough? Or should I do it. I have been reading on here about snorkles but nothing has really answered my questions. But at the same time I live in Poo country (where poos are built) so I dont want to be out and have any problems either if I am with a bunch poo riders. So any help would be great. Thanks

Snorkling the carb. will keep the air cleaner cleaner, as the air will be drawn from above most of the dust kicked up by rear wheels. I did mine and am very happy with the results.

Scheftie is right. But the stock belt ducting is pretty good if you seal it up (drain plugs Etc.)

I did my 700 and was the best upgrade of all, air stays way cleaner, clutches are getting cooler air which is always good.:)

I agree with ya on that one Goonski! mine's getting better air all around and it's making more power cuz of less restriction.. I don't go through much deep stuff either but I can be a lot more confident my clutches and air filter are staying much cleaner when I'm hitting a few puddles to play around! lol added bonus.. although the engine noise is a little bit louder, I love the growley sound.. Lots of good help on here for snorkeling questions.. I did mine thanks to all the help I got from the good ol boys on this site! best 45 dollar mod ever!!

I snorkeled mine for 2 reasons, to keep the air filter cleaner, I used to clean it nearly every ride and now 2 or 3 times a year. 2nd reason was I was I was having trouble with the case seals in the clutch area, thinking that the air going in was either to dirty or too hot, since it was done I haven't had any trouble. Mission accomplished!:D

Don't know how you would go about doing it without anything in sight... mine come up through my arm rest and my outlet for the clutch is just below that... I can still show you my picks, I did a pretty clean job of putting them up through and securing them and they're not in my way at all.. as soon as I get my camera working (lost my charger :( ) I'll share them with you.

They do make a very nice looking kit.. this is the one I almost bought for my prowler until I got some help from the guys on this site.. instead of spending the 250 buks I got my done for around 45.. a little bit of tinkering but not too bad.. :) If I was going to buy a pre made one though, I would probably get it from these guys..
