I know this is an older thread but someone mentioned over heating after they snorkeled there KQ. Unless I'm mistaken overheating is generally a symptom of an overly lean condition. If you snorkel your ATV I would suggest you rejet it as well. You can severely damage your engine running it too lean. Most are pretty lean from the factory and opening up the intake flow can impact that condition for the worse. I know everyone recommends 2" or larger for the intake and I would think the larger engines definitely could use it but I would think many of the 400 or smaller engines could probably work fine with 1.5 inner diameter. I mean most car CAI only use 2.5-3 inch lines to feed a 1800-2500cc engines making 150hp or more. I personally suspect most problems are caused by improper jetting than by and extra half inch of tubing.

After rethinking that a bit there is more to it. The engine also needs a certain volume of available air when the throttle is suddenly opened. When the engine sucks air there is a lag between when it has utilized the air available and when the vacuum draws the air it needs from the long snorkel. This causes a momentary drop in air which causes the engine to stumble. The larger tube causes there to be a larger volume of available air so it evens out the fluctuations. Jetting is still important and the overheating is probably caused by an overly lean condition. Turning you idle screw won't cut it, you probably need to richen all circuits to some degree for it to run right. After all the pain of rejetting my carb then trying one 1.5 in tube, then 2 1.5 inch tubes and it still not running right ( I probably need to lean it out) I finally admitted defeat and went back to the stock setup since I liked the extra power the jet kit provided with the stock airbox. I did snorkel my CVT intake because it tended to suck up too much crap in the muck holes we ride here but I'm going to leave my stock air intake the way it is. Its not bad from the factory if you aren't getting too crazy. I'll be shopping for a better mud machine in the future. 2 rigs is better than one right?
