700 snorkel kit plans?

Does anyone have plans for snorkleing a 700? I am mainly looking for a materials list and prefer one that does not require cutting a hole in the hood.

Getting ready for spring fling and a summer of creek riding!

This would be a problem if youre throwing mud and water or riding in the rain though right?

Hey redrhino, I've got the pipe, the elbows, hoses, and clamps, but could you tell me is the rollbar mount a custom piece that you made or can it be found commercially. Also, what brand and part number is your filter? Thanks a bunch.

snorkel

The Clamp Is From Rock Hard Performance. 1 3/4

The Air Filter Is One I Found On Ebay For A 3 Inch Pipe.
I Made Transmission Snorkels From The Mandrel Bent Tubing As Well.

I like the idea, and I was going to do mine like this. I was just worried about sucking in water and mud with the filter out in the open like that. Have yall had any problems with that, or is it fine?

I went a different approach and used the stock filter and airbox and make an extension that comes out of the box and sealed it with window weld. I will get some pics and try to post them.
