Snorkel on 750i, reprogram?

I just Put a snorkel on a 2011 750i. Do I need to reprogram it or will the comPuter figure it out on its own?

Im pretty sure you will have to. I believe you will be drawing a little less air with the snorks.

I thought it was the other way, I thought you got more air? I thought I read some where that you don't have to reprogram if you have an EFI... But. Ow I can't find it

You might be right Beef..... last nights beers are still talking to me I dont know much about the programmers, but any time I've messed with air intakes or exhaust I've had to rejet the carb.

hey guys I'm new to the brute force just bought one today but to answer your question the EFI is suppose to automatically adjust the air fuel mixture to compensate for the mod. It works the same on most newer vehicles (cars and trucks) this way it keeps you from having to adjust a carburetor or rejet for different altitudes. And i remember reading on the EFI one of the selling points on the EFI was that you didn't have to rejet at the different altitudes which tell me that the computer should figure it out. But i could be wrong I don't think they should call EFI if it doesn't. But try it and let us know lol I'm interested in this also

You'll be fine, my 09 750i ran no prob. Ileft the top 90 only friction fit. At speed i turned it forward(ram air) and gained nothing. GOVERNED!!. VFJ and his programmed MSD fixed that. The carbed 650's need to be jetted, they like the ram air. My 05 650 picked up 8 mph! Just when buddy thought his grizz had a chance i walked away on him. 106 KPH - 119KPH ON GPS

If you are doing a 2 " snorkel it's less air because the intake I believe is between 2 1/4 and 2 1/2 inches. So 2 restricts it a bit. 3 inch snorks gives you more air. Brutes don't automatically adjust that way they adjust a bit for elevation. W snorks Some brutes are fine without a programmer, others need it. I needed it for. My 3 inch snorks I got an MSD from VFJ.

Just a heads up I snorkeled my 2011 750i last week and i can definitely tell you from the riding and testing I don't think you will not have to rejet the bike. Keep in mind that its EFI Mine runs like a scaled dog from a dead stop and to about half throttle it will pull the front tires off the ground i rode it for about and hour in 98 degree weather. I didn't get any cherry exults like I've seen mentioned or no overheating. The bike is all stock no aftermarkets no msd. If something is off I can't tell i used the 2 inch snorkel for the air intake because I didn't want to cut the plastics. Its not the prettiest job but its functional. I would recommend anybody that wants to do this it might be easer and last time consuming to buy a kit. It took me 12 hours with all the trial and error
