2012+ Brute Force Snorkel Instructions

This is not intended to be a "how to"...rather an UPDATE to the MIMB snorkels.

This is the way I did it...I'm sure there will be other ways...better ways

Here the bike is naked to get a good idea of what you are/will be working with



















First step is to remove all the stock snorkels/guards/plastic. You remove EVERYTHING under the front fenders, there is the airbox snorkel, splash guard, and plastic insert for the electronics (SAVE THIS PIECE) we are going to cut up later

Then you can plumb up your CVT Exhaust first...

Just like 08+ brutes, 90* street to 22.5 to 45/90/90 then riser









Next we are going to work on the CVT INTAKE

Take the stock piece off...

Cut it at about 7" from the bend that comes up(just below the tab that holds the wiring) (you will see what I'm talking about when you do it)



Put a 2" rubber 90* coupler on it (2" works...you just have to stretch it), you are going to face this towards the left side of the bike!

Now build your riser...



Mine is a little piece of PVC, then a street 90*, then about 3-4" of pvc to a 45* to another 45*

What you are essentially doing here is clearing the handlebars and getting the snorkel to sit straight up. This took a lot of time for me to figure out! But it works!





Now you can do your airbox...

3" rubber 90* cut off the ends, you have to remove the computer module from the frame to get in there...it's extremly tight. Something is different with the steering obviously, but it almost does not fit the 3" 90*

I then used a 45* to a 90* and it fits perfect! Just put a little piece of rubber between the bushing and the 3" 90* so it doesn't rub through.





I did not use a single zip tie on the snorkels! They fit perfect!

Before you pt the plastics back on, di electric grease all the connectors and ALSO zip tie them out of the way. It is extremely tight under the fenders and dont' let anything bounce around!

I cut the front piece with the rollover sensor so that it just has the front little portion (you will see what I'm talking about) that is all that fit. I wanted the rollover sensor mounted correctly and also the ecu to have a mounting point. They do not fit in the stock location but I zip tied them down!




Then you are going to cut the lip off the front fenders around where the snorkels go, PLUS about 1/4-1/2" for the curve of the snorkels.

Then take your shroud and cut the shiney part out 1/2" above the bolt hole all the way to the top. Also going to need to trim and round out for the 2" rubber couplers!

I make the rubber couplers sit on top of the plastics, holds them good and a good reference point so they are all even.




A work in progress









This isn't mine! It's a friends I am doing up for him...but doing this is making me want a 12!

P, could you swap this to my thread from the Kawi section? Or I can just edit it


Should be wrenching instead of using TapaTalk

There is a template on this site you can print off to put on the plastic shroud to cut the holes needed for the snorkels to come threw , or just cut the entire middle piece out of where they will come threw and zip tie them all together to help hold them together if needed

Do you think a 3" center intake snorkel would fit like the 08-11's? I was also wondering if any part of your handlebars hit the snorkel tubes at full lock?

I never got into the 3" snorkel craze. Never saw a need for it as 2" does really just fine!

As for cutting the shroud I just do a square cut just pretty much the entire smooth part. Then a little more on the edges. Mine never move. No zip ties here... Just as the tips of the snorkels to hold them tight and even

Mine needs the 3" airflow due to mods. Do you think it will fit, or no way? Was just hoping to get an idea before i buy the 3" stuff.

I don't think that it will fit. It's extremely tight just doig 2". And the center snorkel hits where the ecu sits. You may be able to do it with extreme modding

I don't want to discourage you...it may fit but I do not think there is enough room. It was a pain to get them all to fit right...

Also wanted to ask what mods you have that require 3" snorkel? 840?
