Snorkel kit for RzR 800

I was considering getting a snorkel kit for not RzR 800 but I have a few questions. Will it decrease my power because of less airflow? Is there even less airflow? And I do alot of mudding. So I was wondering would mud fly into it easily and ruin my machine? I was just wondering if its worth it. Thanks.

Re: Snorkel kit for RzR 800

I snorkeled my rzr last year seems to be no power loss only thing is take your clutches out n really seal your belt housing good im still have a little trouble with the belt gettin wet but other than that it is a great mod you can get everything at Lowes for bout 80$ or you can buy a kit for around 170$

Re: Snorkel kit for RzR 800

Thanks. My belt doesn't get wet now. Does the snorkel cause that to happen?

Re: Snorkel kit for RzR 800

I've run a snorkel kit for approx. 80 hrs without a single issue. Just recently replaced the belt as well due to time not that it looked bad, it's now a backup. I wouldn't say the clutch is affected since mine has worked great. I also put a sealed UTV inc airbox on mine. Been through many deep holes and has been solid on all accounts.

Re: Snorkel kit for RzR 800

No, it shouldnt have any effect on power.....everything Ive had has been snorkeled (its Texas, everything is deep).....and mine has turn downs which makes it so mud couldnt get in if it wanted to. You could always do extra filtration and and throw some small pod filters on it.

Re: Snorkel kit for RzR 800

OK thanks. One more quick question. Was it hard to install?

Depends on what a person calls tough. I would say it's a intermediate level mod, not advanced or beginner. Simple reason being, you have to cut holes in the bed and have to get that right the first shot. A little tough to get your hands in places to install but not too bad. I would say the toughest, most frustrating, part to me was getting the CVT covers sealed up.

Are you closer to DFW than Tomball? I know a guy up here near me that does an awesome job and his labor rates aren't bad at all. He also builds the kit custom to your wants/needs.

That being said, I did my own install.

Dang, well good luck. You shouldn't have a problem finding a place. Lots of deep water/mud riders here in Texas.

It was a mud industries kit that I installed.....I know people have had problems with them in the past, but I didnt. We just did my buddies 570 with a snorkel your atv kit. Both were pretty easy, main difference is mine is all hard piping (PVC) and the snorkel your atv kit has flex hose. If you are down here, and want a hand with it I dont mind helping out. Took us about two hours, but we were doing other stuff while we waited on the RTV to dry.

Re: Snorkel kit for RzR 800

Unless you plan on being submerged higher than the stock plenum, I wouldn't do it. More tubing/more pressure drop/less intake air/less clutch cooling. May look cool but not necessary.

Re: Snorkel kit for RzR 800

I know were the sir intake is nut I don't know how high the water can go up to. So I wanted a snorkel kit just so I won't have to worry about getting water into the air intake

Re: Snorkel kit for RzR 800

Good call on snorkeling your rzr if you have any intentions of going near the water. I did my '11 S right after the warranty expired almost 5000 km ago (I have over 5600 km total I think) with no major troubles, no power loss and I am running the second belt. There is lots of info here about what to do to make your rig waterproof. My snorkels are just above the bar behind my head and I'm good for about 4' of water. If you are going really deep go up to the top of the roof for sure. Put Dielectric grease in all plugs, spark plug leads etc. to keep your electrics happy. Relocate all your vent lines and if you do snorkel your rig, plan to put heat shields above and in front of your engine (right side, above your gas tank) and heat tape inside your right fender to protect your plastic from melting as your CVT exhaust no longer keeps air moving around your engine. Relocate your fan relay, plug the little breather hole in the back of your speedo, replace the crank case breather hose (the one with the slit in it that goes to your air-box). While your bed is off to install the heat shields, pull your starter and silicone the end caps and grease the o-rings too. I seal my air-box and clutch cover with grease and have never had a leak. Note: every ride where I go through water (I am in NO WAY as hardcore as lots of guys are but I do go steering wheel deep a half dozenish times a year) I plug my intake snorkel with my hand, stalling the engine and it'll keep suction against my hand indefinitely. Some hard core guys even vent their antifreeze overflow bottle (I haven't).
With proper preventative maintenance, it is actually pretty easy to make these things run happily under water. Have fun!
