Ok I have been debating about snorkeling my 07 750 but after trying to change the rear spark plug and breaking the threads off in the motor. I decided since I was pulling the plastic and belt snorkel to get to the plug hole to go for it. I got the threads out pretty easy. Thank God

So here is my question. I ran the carb vents, rad overflow vent,and tank vent. Is their anything else I should run to the pod or do while im in there. Ive sealed up the drain on the airbox but thought I would just leave the big hose going to the valve cover going tho the box.

I will start running pipe tomm. Any suggestions let me know.

I dont ride in deep water, Im doing it for piece of mind but want it right.

THANKS FOR THE HELP

Congrats on getting that broken plug out.

You've covered everything. The diffs are already done for you. I seal the airbox with silicone cause it often dips under for a sec but if you arent riding deep there should be no need. Make sure you apply dielectric grease to every connector u can find including the spark plug boots. Also you may want to apply some anti-seize to the spark plug threads. Will save from doing what you had to do this time.

Are you runnin a stock exhaust? If you are, and you use the 3" rubber 90* like the instructions say, you most likely wont have to rejet ;)

Thanks for all the help. It aint as easy as it looks in the pics. It was **** trying to get them things straightand the guy that designed atv plastics sucks.. I got it done and it runs great. I havent checked it WOT but got it to about 40 at the house and she was still pulling strong.
AGAIN thanks for the help and a cool website.

Haha yeah that new snorkel pipe acts like a megaphone attached to the clutch housing.

You'll get use to that though.

Put a muffler on it LOL

Steve have you tried turning it to the right so it does not face you? That might help.

I got use to it and don't pay it much attention anymore.
