I had a spare intake snorkel lying around. Just did it for fun and looks. If it stuffs up how the bike runs I'll swap it out.
The mesh thingy is a cut down stock intake snorkel, they can be split in half. Over that I glued a gutter downpipe connector. 3 inch PVC plastic, shortned. Over that I glued a cut down ebay velocity stack, 3 inch aluminum. Inside the stack,sitting on the PVC connector is some poly mesh. Everthing glued up with a black marine adhesive, Sika. It can be painted. Which I did. It also sticks like s**t on a blanket.
Basically it's some backyard ghetto mod. The model before had a 90 degree bend and a 3 inch diameter snorkel facing forward. Bike took a lot longer to warm up, when moving, and at high speeds the engine had a weird feel like it was surging a little. So I went in this direction. Haven't gone hard on this one yet cause I'm waiting on a tire so can't say what it's like at speed but bike starts fine and cruises about nice.
