Just did a custom rad relocate & snorkels on a '12 700 Grizzly w/ EPS. Dual 2" snorks to the air box as well as 2" inlet & exhaust for the belt. - Everything was done "in-house".

The snorkel risers are typical 2" pvc, sanded & prepped after assembly then coated with rattle-can bed-liner spray. For the plumbing side I use a flex hose from a manufacturer called Flexible-Technologies that I get through my work. It is a commercial vacuum type hose, has held up for over 5 years and still going on other bikes(all of our crew uses this stuff), and is flexible enough to be folded double back on itself & not collapse making it very handy to work with compared to anything else.

I did the air box an all connections using 2" exhaust pipe/cut sections of mandrel bends. Being metal leaves you a lot of strength to clamp onto, as well as being only a 16 gauge wall thickness to not impede flow.

Air box lid:










Routing to the front - the black covering is an industrial fabric for abrasion resistance, I use it anywhere they sit snugly on a sharp edge.


Belt routing. I cut the rubber inlet elbow down to just the first turn. 1" length of 3" exhaust tubing, welded to a flat plate with a 1" long piece of 2" for the hose to hook-up to:


going up front(one section was off an old bike):


They all come up through where the radiator originally sat:



Finished pics with the custom rad relocate. Relocate shroud/bracket was built from 14gauge steel & small opening expanded metal:














Vent lines looped up top:


hoses hooked-up to risers:


Shows that the entire electrical compartment is fully accessible w/o removing anything other than the stock cover, also shows the free-hand plasma work on the logo I came up with -

Thanks guys.

As Bump pointed out on another forum, you can also still access the air filter w/o removing anything extra.

What area of SW Florida are you in. I live in Lehigh and have a 700 that I have been wanting to do these mods to. I love to get a closer look at your work.

Thanks for the kind words from all.

I'm actually in Lehigh as well, out towards Alva. - This isn't one of my machines, it's family of a friend; I actually haven't seen or heard anything of it since I did it. I'm sure it's working well or I would have heard otherwise for sure(lol).

The owner lives in Lehigh as well, should be rolling on 28" mudzillas that she had for it.
