What are the pros and cons of having a snorkel on your brute force 750

I own a 2005 kawasaki brute force 750 and was thinkin about puttin a snorkel kit on it.(A home made snorkel) and was wanting to know what the pros and cons were of one. I've heard that they decrease power so was wanting to know it that was fact or crap.

Pro's: Everything.

Con's: None.

Seriously though, if you ride in any water/mud at all, a snorkel is the most important mod you could ever do. As far as them being homemade, we wouldnt want you to do them any other way! CLICKY for do it yourself snorkel instructions

Well if you do it like the how to on here you won't lose anything. That is with the 3" rubber 90. I can tell you from experience that it is good to have. My first ride on my brute was almost my last for a while. We t in a hole that was about 3/4 up my tires and missed the ruts. Filled my belt housing with water and came close to getting water in the intake. If it is nothing more than cheap insurance.

The pros are obvious.

The cons.....worst i can think of is you may have to re jet. That can be a pain sometimes.

Jet kit

I've heard alot about re jetting and I know its your needles in you carb. but when you say re jet do you mean get a whole new jet kit and shims and all that or just re tune the carb.

I did the snorkles that Polaris425 gave you the link to. I love them and I had to rejet but it is a 50/50 thing. Not everyone needs to rejet and then others need it. I have a pipe so mine needed it anyway.
I went to mudnats back in 08 the weekend after I bought my brute force and had not snorkles. I had big tires and a lift and winch but I was so scared that I was going to ruin my new ride because the park was flooded that year and if you missed the trail by just a little you would be fender/tank deep quick. I got on here and did the snorkles shortly after that ride. If for nothing else they are VERY cheap insurance when compared to the price of a rebuild.
I go deep now with confidence that if I do not roll my bike it is safe.

Lots of Pros. I actually wouldnt go on a ride with out being snorkeled when i first got my 06.

Con-Snorkels do absolutely no good when you're flipped upside down or flip on your side in deep water. Then again even with no snorks you'd drown in those situations.

Go ahead and do it. You won't regret it.

I could be wrong but I would figure if anything you would gain power after snorking, it lets more air in the b ox and if you jet it then youve got more fuel and air...which should make more power. Jetting is the only Con that I can think.

Actually adding snorkels to a brute restricts the air flow into the box. These Big V twins draw a lot of air. Most people go with 2" snorkels which have a smaller then the stock air opening to start with. Add in the fact that the air has to be drawn in through the long snorkel tubes makes it even more restrictive. The turbulence inside the pipe caused by the bends makes it even worse.

But it's worth saying for the most part using 2" all the way with the 3" rubber 90 will work for most situations. It is a little more restrictive then stock but not much.

Some folks with bigger then stock engines use bigger intake pipe like 2-1/2 or even 3" all the way. Some even run 2 separate 2" intake snorkels.

I was just thinking if he is going to snorkel his Brute he sure came to the right place! MIMB snorks and Bootlegger, that's an unbeatable combination.
