Trooper snorkel question


Recommended Posts

I was thinking about getting the snorkel kit for my trooper. I would like to know if anyone else has it and is it worth it? My friend told me that I would also have to extend all of the vent lines for the fuel tank, differentials, transmission, ect... Is this necessary? I will be doing more mudding than trail riding. Thanks for taking the time to read this. Happy riding!

I don't know what kit your looking at but my do it yourself works great and costs less than $30.00. GO TO http://www.utvboard.com/Parts-Pieces-Infor...2.html#entry475, it's the 5th item from the top.

I definitely recommend and believe in it whether you have a stock or upgraded air filter, It gets it up out of the dust into clean air. As far as extending anything else, I didn't. If I was going to worry about other things, I would worry about the alternator getting filled with muck and the fan getting stopped by the muck, then I'd worry about the vent tubes.

I just bought a 2" or 2.5" (cant remember which) 90 degree elbow and a pice of hose to connect it to the stock pipe. this brings it out right behind your shoulder which is plenty high. I am a bit concerned with the shopvac hose because it is corrugated which causes turbulence and a loss of power not a lot but every pony is a pony. also i know if you do go that long you should use a larger diameter tube to compensate for the extra draw.

Sorry Kinarfi im not trying to put down your system it obviously works for you but these are the things Ive been told by high performance guys.

As for other lines i would only bother with the diff vents that is all i have worried about. the transmission vents through the top rubber boot around the shifter tower i don't know how to extend this.

I used 3" black ABS piping from Home Depot with sweep elbows. Look at PVC piping, PVC electrical conduit or ABS drain piping. There is a combination that will work for you and have smooth inside walls.

I just recently installed a snorkle as suggested by kinarfi and it worked great. I was looking at the vent lines from the differentials and I'm going to route them up higher as I do alot of mud and water riding. I'll know later this week if any water/mud seeped into the diffs as I'll be changing out the fluids.

I went with 2" pipe from the local exhaust store and some hardware from home depot. (pictures are in the gallery) I was concerned about rocks hitting the abs and breaking it. I am sure this concern was unjustified but I like everything to be bulletproof. I haven't reveiwed the materials specs but I know plastic gets brittle in the cold as well.

That looks good Chris, however, If it's that cold out side, my Trooper and I are going to be inside :D:P:lol:

      hello everyone, i just joined this forum to try my luck, few days ago i bought an old (dont know exactly), 2011/14 hi sun 500cc ""carburated"",  was not running at the time, but i fell was a good deal and decided it to bring it home to play with it, this is the issue, i bought and installed a new carb, and pump, i repositioned the battery location and upgraded to a "car batt", reconnected the fuel lines and started it, but it only runs with the choke ON, i checked the bowl, it does have fuel,but for some reason wont inject it to run, i came across a video that say that ""the body small tank had to be connected for the cart to run" (was deleted when bought), sure enough i got it to run sporadically , but the so called ""small body tank'' often runs out of fuel and wont refill itself , i had to couple times do it manually, so how does that small tank works ?..what does it do?..and why if  bypass it , the cart wont start?....any help?..thanks so much!!!

      I have a 2012 Massimo MSU 500 that died. I found that it didn't have spark and the fuel pump wouldn't run. Checked all fuses and none were blown.
      Went through and replaced the ignition coil, HT lead and spark plug. Still no spark.
      Thought it could be the fuse/relay box because I didnt' know much about the machine at that point so I replaced it. No spark.
      Then I replaced the ECM just because I was running out of ideas. No spark.
      I removed the 9 pin connector and hardwired it making sure that they were no wires got swapped. Still no spark.
      Then I replaced the wiring hardness. In doing so, I replaced the 9 pin connector with new ones. I made sure all wires were matched up between the engine harness side and the other harness assembly. Still no spark.
      I have no other ideas what to do. My fuel pump doesn't kick on and I have no spark. I have 12V on the fuel pump, ignition coil and fuel injector, but no ground from the ECM control.  I unplugged the fuel injector and waited for a diagnostic code but nothing ever came in. It makes me think that the ECM isn't powering up. I've checked for 12V on pins 18 (purple wire) and 15 (white and black wire). I also checked for ground on pin 2 (black wire). All are good.
      I am out of options here and I have no idea what else it could be. I have all connections redone and are coated with dielectric grease. I've checked all easy things like fuses and making sure I have 12V in the right placed. I would appreciate any help.

      I am trying to locate a transmission radiator for my 2022 coleman UT400.  I cannot find a parts listing that shows the transmission radiator, so I am not sure what the part number is.
