consider all this, i got it straight from HMF

If you still want add a snorkel to your exhaust, make sure you support the snorkel by other means than just the endcap. You need a strap or mount running to the frame or rack to support the snorkel. Otherwise you will tear the endcap off the muffler. Also the packing inside the muffler will wear out at a faster rate than normal when used with a snorkel because of higher temperatures inside the muffler. Repacking will need to be performed more often.

I personally don't like the sound of them or at least haven't heard one yet that I like. But I know some guys thinking about doing it as well just to help keep the water out if it dies when deep.

i guess I did. i had assumed when he said HMF he was going to make his own snork for his swamp series instead of buying it.
SORRY!! :(

he only said HMF

All you need for support is 1 U-bolt...Drill two holes through your rack, run a U-bolt around the snork then through the rack and it will not go anywhere...Solid as the rack is...

I am seriously considering this since I sucked some water in the pipe after foolishly diving off into 6' of swamp water. My main concern is the heat of the extension. Is it gonna burn my girlfriend if she simply bumps it or not.

I had a local exhaust shop do mine. I used a 31/2x2 washer and drilled the holes off of the factory end cap. Had them weld the 2in pipe to the washer and he welded me a support from the back rack. All he used for the support was a u bolt and an exhaust hanger. Here's a pic of it. Sorry for the size, it was the only way I could get a close up shot because I sold the bike.
