Well, i have tried removing it and after 5 months and about 5000Km, I decided to put it back in.

To me it seems that (apart from the intake roar) without the snorkel the engine operates more smoothly in high rpm (and perhaps with a bit more power), but it suffered at low rpm and at slight throttle openings the bike hesitated a bit. The opposite with the snorkel in place: better at low rpm, worse at high rpm. Also, fuel consumption was more with the snorkel removed.

I've had the bike dyno'ed in several different guises. Snorkel in / out, airbox cover on / off etc. Long story short, snorkel out = a little more power everywhere. Airbox cover off (dna stage 2) = a little more power everywhere but quite a bit more at the top.

I've got a K&N airfilter on order, is there anywhere in the UK where I can get the DNA airbox cover?

Cheers.

I removed the snorkel from my XT660X and it stumbled a lot. I had Arrow pipes on K&N filter on it. After I played with the CO levels the bike felt a lot more responsive at low rpm. I would say its a good move as long as you fiddle with the CO level and get it all set up nicely.

Its a pain in the bum to put back in though Laughing

ts ts ts women !!!!

it is the most easy thing to do !!!!!

just squize it and its back in its place !!!

ps: use some silicon before fitting it back.

ps2: my opinion is not to put it back, let the engine to breathe better !!
