Here is one to pick your brains with.... My Son has a Prairie 300 (2002) he is getting braver when we go out and is starting to go deeper (a little too deep last weekend as we sat while his belt dried out) Well I am wanting to snorkel it now. The Airbox and intake on the cvt seems easy enough... the cvt exhaust (2 of them) on the other hand appears to be a little more difficult? Anybody seen a write up on this paticular bike for snorkeling? I plan on doing a write up on this when finished to help out the little M.I.M.B.'ers out there... if they are like my sons they have mud coursing as well...lol.

I did a snorkel on my previous '99 400 Prarie and a '00 300 Prarie. I can get pics this weekend of either if you need them.

The belt exhaust I did in 2" PVC off the right hand hole and capped the smaller hole. Still had plenty of breathing room and never got the belt hot. I cut a hole in the rear fender and ran the pipe across the CVT cover in the dip it has and just below the shifter. From there it was easy to run up in the center. Was nicely tucked out the way and had rubber couplings on each end for easy access to the CVT cover. For the other two I ran 1 1/2" on each side. Ended up looking good and never gave me any trouble.

Feel free to shoot me a PM with any questions and I will gladly give what advice I can.

I'll grab you some pics this weekend if you still need them. If you make a write up I will contribute what I can and make it as good as we can for anyone else looking to do this. Had I known about MIMB when I first did these I would have done one myself then.

A note on the carb intake. Don't remove the original plastic piece off the box that runs near the pod. If you try and replace the whole thing you will have to rejet the carb. What I recommend is cutting the top of the original pipe off where it makes a 90* turn backwards. This allows you to just put a 1 1/2" rubber coupling on it and extend it up. This keeps the air flow just about exactly stock and carb changes are needed.

I know this is an old post but I recently got a 02 300 4x4 and am looking for a little guidance in making a snorkel for it. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks
