No need for flex pipe IMO on the 2012. The 2" worked perfect. I might be selling my gade and Honda and go back to one bike...a 2012 brute. Or maybe a 13


Should be wrenching instead of using TapaTalk

Got some questions on your 2012 brute snorkel kit
Make sure I have the right parts first...

Cvt exhaust
3-90*
1-22.5*
1-45*
All 2"

Cvt intake
1-rubber 90*
1-90*
2-45*
Also all 2"

Intake
1-rubber 90* 3" (were does it switch back to 2"?)
1-45*
1-90*
Last 2 are 2"

And would I need about 10ft of 2" pvc?
Next is as far as vent lines go how many an what has vents?
What size vent line do I need to re-route this?
Does the cvt box and airbox rubber seals work good or silicone aall such as were the throttle body hooks to air box around the lids?
And as far as differentials etc.. is there anything else the 2012s have that leak or need to be sealed?

Your list sounds about right.

I extend all vent lines up. Same as the 08-11 brutes. And I did crankcase vent relocation to under the pod. Fuel vent needs to be addressed as well

The cvt and airbox seals work fine. Over time the airbox one will weaken but I always replace them periodically.

Vent line is 1/4" if I'm not mistaken. Clear hose


Should be wrenching instead of using TapaTalk

Do you have any problems with oil coming out of the line or anything since you moved the crank vent? I have noticced if I do any wheelies it will be in my air filter some.. I ended up ordering a snorkel that should be in towards the end of the week and I want to make sure I do it right

Well first off you WASTED that money. And 2, if you run the crank vent up w/ a filter on the end you wont have oil in your box anymore.

First off trigger, I have done probably over 50 snorkel installs and I'm being conservative. There is nothing like a custom 1 off install that you spend the time on (not talking a quick 1 hour install) and everything fits YOUR bike, not the 'mold'. While its apart you di-electric grease everything, run the vent lines up, run the crank vent up.

If you have ever ordered a snorkel kit before, then you know what you are getting into. But every bike is just a little different believe it of not, which is why snorkel KITS absolutely suck. Even the can am ones...they never fit like home made kits.

With all that said, you wasted $130 IMO. That right there could have gotten you a nice RDC lift.

If you don't like it, don't post up about a snorkel kit on a snorkel write up. Thanks

Bud no one on here really cares for the kits. They are just trying to help you out and save some money. It really is a waste. Almost everyone on here who has bought a "kit" junked it. You can't give them away.

I dont know about everyone else on here but, I like that nice feeling of security that I personally glued and checked every joint on my mimb snorkel to know that it doesnt leak.

I would have a hard time with a pre manufactured kit if the first time I dipped off into a hole and I sucked water into the intake through a bad pre manufactured seal and not only wasted $200 on a snorkel and just threw $9400 down the drain on a brand new bike.

But hey, it's your bike brother.

Ok sorry for startin all this up because I use to be on forums all the time an people would be up there just tryin to start stuff.. my reason for ordering a kit though is I just had a can am that got run in the ground an I want to take a little better care of this one so I just felt more comfortable with ordering a kit. But I have snorkel'd a honda and helped find quite a few leaks I just don't want to miss anything on mine

And as said early to not miss anything would be to seal and build every joint on the snorkel. Then you can be sure it's right. You may like the bought snorkels though. Let us know how well they work out.

Everything is together just 2 more questions I removed my crankcase vent and filled the hole with rtv silicone from auto zone an when I put my hand over the snorkel it dies in 2-3 seconds is there anything else with the air box needing silicone, etc. ? And the vent beetween the skid plate and the motor with a little cannister on it does it need moving? I ended up with I think 7 vent lines all together front and rear diff gas tank radiator fan then there was 2 grey ones with blue lines that were in the pod so I moved them to does this sound right? Thanks for the help

The bike sounds like it is sealed up, not sure about the vent lines. All I raised was gas tank vent, front/rear diff and crankcase. Radiator is relocated so fan was not needed and radiator overflow vent went up to pod

I forgot to say I got the overflow bottle to but I believe that is everything an thanks for the help... I just hope I haven't missed any important vent an the airbox is good because I can always drain the belt but the motor is a differnt story but with you tellin me I've got it all I feel more comfortable

Negative on the idle under water. Still not enough compression i guess
