For the life of me I cannot find anyone who makes a snorkel kit for the latest generation sportsman 400. I'm looking to snorkel a 2012 and 2013 400. I'm pretty confident I could instal a good quality kit if I could find one. Dealers and performance shops want an arm and a leg to fabricate and instal one. I've looked high and low with no luck. Snorkelyouratv.com used to make one but pulled it for the 400. Any ideas or know of a quality pre-fab kit? Thanks in advanced!

I would be willing to bet that the snorkel your atv kit for the 2012-2013 500 will work just fine on your 400. if it were me I would get the 2012-2013 500 kit from triangle atv and install it as I have recently done to my 12 500.

The detail says it's for 05'-09' models. Did it for your 2012?

Yes I bought my kit through high lifter and it was for a 2012 500. Triangle is bad about updating thier website. If you need further assurance or assistance just call triangle atv. They were very helpful to me when I had questions regarding the kit and a few steps of the install process.

Anyone else have any insight or experience? I can't be the only one who's tried/trying to snorkel a latest generation sportsman 400. Every bit helps!

I noticed over at snorkleyouratv.com they specifically say their 500cc kit isn't for the 400cc. I'm waiting to hear back from a couple companies to see if the kits are compatible. I'm thinking the air box cover/inlet may be different. If that's the case I might pick up a pre-fabbed snorkel cover from rubberdown customs and run the rest of the 500 kit. Sounds good on paper anyways.

Have you figured anything out or got a snorkel kit from somewhere? My cousin has the 400 and we are looking everywhere for one and cannot find one. If you have found one please let me know or if you even made your own can you post how you did it what parts you used etc. and post pics if you've gotten it done anything will help, at this point we are about ready to just do it ourselves.

No luck here. Guess I'll just have to rig something up myself.

I don't understand what could possibly be that different from the 400 to 500 to make the kits incompatible. If it is the air box top rubberdown customs makes a two chamber top for a snorkel setup.

http://www.rubberdowncustoms.ca/snorkle.html

Pain in the ass. With as many people that have the 400 I don't understand why there's no kits out there. I even rode at busco with the guy that created and runs extreme snorkels (he drives a nasty custom RZR 800) and he said there's not enough demand out there to streamline and mass produce a snorkel kit for the 400.

The older 400's were also 455cc i believe..... I am pretty sure the 2011 was...

What all needs to be snorkled? I know air but why do i see 4 on their site?

They're not too far from top of the gas tank. I'm going to call triangle atv to see if the 500 kit will fit. Need a rad relocate kit too.
