MIMB snorkel engine intake question

Well I'm about to do the snorkel mod tomorow. Only one question... does the engine intake snorkel make alot of noise? I don't mind some engine noise.... but I hate the sucking sound that the engine makes when you take the air filter cover off. Let me know so I can make my decision.

Engine intake makes no noise when compared to the belt exhaust.... the CVT whine becomes MUCH louder than with stock

No. Once you get into it and on your way the belt noise goes away. I find myself putting it in neutral at a stop to minimize the belt whine. But moving along there is no real annoying noise once moving.

At 30 mph mine is sceamin! You can hear the CVT clutches , The squeal at a idle you are hearing is normal at idle ,just means belt defection is good . If you want to stop that noise remove the KEBS crap

I noticed more noise right away when I first installed the snorkels. Although I got used to it very quickly and it just seems normal now. The HMF exhaust is loud enough to distract my attention away from a little belt whine.

I also smell the belt from the CVT ext when I am pulling a heavy loads or putting around too slow in high range.

Yes, you will hear the airbox intake sucking air more than what you do now, but after a little bit you will get use to it. What I like about being able to hear to sucking sound in the airbox snorkel, is that I can tell if my bike/carbs have any other problems that you normally wont hear.

Has anyone tried putting some cone style air filters on the end of the snorkles to quiet the noise down.This would also keep dust and dirt out and work as a prefilter for the engine intake.

You already have 1 air filter, by adding another filter, you will only be restricting the air flow, which will cause more jetting problems. If you are that concerned with dirt/sand getting into your motor, just add the prefilter to your exsiting filter.
