Intake is 2" already, so no need to go 3" on that end.
The exhaust is 3+", but there's no room between the end of the cvt cover and the bottom of the box frame.
Look for a thread called "Belt Housing Snorkel", its a pretty good design IMO. Only flaw I found was the water comes of the front tire and right into the intake, you'll need to shroud it some how. I used a "crazy carpet".
The thread is complete with a shopping list.
As for the impaired air movement and residual heat created by the 2" vs the 3" exhaust, you can lessen the affects.
One - move the intake from it's stock location, it sucks the hot air right over the engine exhaust into the cvt.
Two - The Dalton clutch cover has cooling fins built into it to aid in the cooling. You'll probably want that mod anyway.
Three - I've heard of a few people adding an axillary fan to force extra air through the system. I haven't tried this yet my self though.
All of these will help a bit.
I know any of the reliable contributers (like Todd) will say a snorkel is not worth the extra belt heat, but with our riding conditions in Manitoba the way they are, we simply don't have much choice.
The only complaint I have about the Teryx is that my belt is continually getting wet.
I have snorkeled my bike, and I have it at home in Winnipeg. If you'd like to come check it out, you are welcome. Drop me a PM and we can make a plan.
Ya I hear ya. I went riding with my buddy this weekend with his Rhino and there were several holes I had to go around because his stock snorkles just put me to shame. Not good. I'll have to look an see if there is an alternative to the 3" somehow. I know the CVT intake I would run behind the seat. Found that setup on other teryx forum. I like that one better than under the hood.
I emailed Todd already and under his suggestion 3" was the way to go. I would agree that here we need snorkles to survive.
Another thing I already found out was rock sliders is a must. Tore the crap out of my side on drivers already. If your interested ride pics are on Trackshare.com posted under rides user name Nozzleweed.
Thanks for the info.
I played around quite a bit trying to make a 3" exhaust, but I couldn't find room any way I tried it.
I understand why you wanted to move the intake behind the seats. My thinking was, the less kinks you put in the line, the more easily the air would flow. But, it would be nice to have the intake higher, breathing cleaner air.
The Rock Sliders are a must. I've damage the passenger side on mine already too.
i did my 09 teryx with a rubber cupling 3" to 2" and made a full 360 out of the exuast and shot it up next to the seat. it took a little time to get things right but it works well. set still in water over the bed and had no problems. never had any problems with it heating up. if you think of it if your snorkels are up in the air beside you it will cause a natural draft when you are riding. if anything i would think it would help with that problem instead of hurt.
I doubt it could be done, 2" was pretty tight. No way u could route 3" under the driver's seat. Again I am not certain as to why 3" is better when the intake is only 2". And some of those areas where you get close to the exhaust means a 3" would be even closer.
I have my kawasaki teryx 2004 and few days ago i cant start it using key it is very difficult to insert key into the lock and if it goes inside it won't turn i think the lock might be jammed but i'm not sure so if anyone knows a cheaper way to fix this issue plzz suggest me about it.
I have a 2013 Teryx 4. I can jump start it, it will run for a couple minutes then the EPS light comes on and power steering won't work, within seconds the check engine light comes on and the motor stops. The battery is brand new. Please give me some ideas on what to check or what might be...
I have recently purchased a low mileage 2008 Teryx that we moved from the Sacramento, CA area to our cabin in the mountains at 6100' level. The Teryx appears to start and run OK (since this is my first UTV, I have nothing to compare it to for performance). But I am noticing when we shut it...

I have a 2013 Teryx4. After changing the oil I took it for a drive and it killed on me and the oil light started flashing. I got it home and checked the oil and it was right where it should be but it won’t start and keeps flashing. I disconnected the battery for a few days and then tried...
