I need some help with terminology. What is the snorkel...

Under the seat and on top of the air box you'll see a vented type piece riveted to the air box.Most guys drill the rivets and pull it out after putting a good filter in and re-jetting the carb.Lets alot more air get to the carb.


From your other post, I would imagine that your snorkle is long gone. It's just a rubber or plastic piece that goes in the airbox opening. It restricts the air intake a little and quiets the intake down some. Removing it lets more air in and more air means more power.

you got that right Cleonard and your description is way better.So long off to ride got off work early.
