Clean install, did you retain the factory air filter? Do you have any pictures of the installation process? In addition, did you do any water mitigation -- dialectic grease? I want to make my 1000X a bit more water resistant and also add a snorkel and am intrested in any suggestions you may have. I am located in North Fort Myers Fl and we do have a lot of water and mud this time of year.

Yes the oem air filter is still in place, I bought the SYA warrior snorkel riser kit and installed it per the instructions until I got to the part where it says to clamp on the 3 inch riser and instead I clamped on a 3 inch Spectre air filter. I still have the riser and all the hose that came with the kit. The kit is to make the Talon submersible in deep water but I have no use for that as I live in the Desert. Where I live dust is the enemy not water. I have about 400 miles on this air filter set up and I just checked my main filter and it looked really good so I reinstalled it just like it was so I will be able to see just how far I can go before I will need to replace the $48 Honda filter, and from what I am seeing so far it looks like I will be able to go about a year on the Honda filter and then I will just pop in a new one. I purchased 2 of the Spectre 3 inch filters so I can always have a clean one ready to go. I wash the pre filter every 3 rides. For your application you may want to just buy the SYA Warrior Riser Snorkel kit and Install it as is. Make sure you order the one for the Honda Talon. The kit will come with every thing you need Except a 3 1/4 (83mm) hole saw which you can get at Home Depot. There is a panel that you remove located under the right rear fender to do the snorkel install. https://www.snorkelyouratv.com/product-page/sya-3-warrior-riser-snorkel-kit-for-honda-talon-1000x-1000r-2019

Hi Idiot, (no disrespect) I did order the SYA warrior snorkel kit for the Talon and have the Passenger side fender and panel below fender cover removed getting ready for the install. Glad you mentioned the size of the hole saw, I will check tonight, and if I do not have one I will pick one up. I do not have the instructions -- do you have to remove the riser that comes out of the factory filter box? I still have it in place for now. Your modification with the addition of and extra filter looks like it would work just fine. I will pick up a filter or two for locations that are not mud bogs/water all over. I do not plan to go in deep water but it is difficult to tell in muddy water unless you are following someone. If there are no exit tracks and the grass is not disturbed best to drive around or walk through first, just watch out for snakes and gators o_O

Yes remove the stock riser where it clamps to the rubber boot, and clamp on the 3 inch pipe that comes with the kit

I love what you did there with the air intake!

Hey, it looks like you got the optional switches? Also, which lower door panel did you get?

Love the tires, I want to do that!

Hey Idiot ( it’s hard for me to post that...lol), did you notice any drop in performance when you installed the pre filter? Also what comes with the Snorkel kit that is Un-seen below the body, is it something that you could just make?
thanks

All I did was purchase the SYA Warrior Riser kit for the Honda Talon and install it per the directions, but when you get to the part where you are suppose to clamp on the riser just leave the riser off and clamp on a 3 inch air filter of your choice. I went with the Spectre air filter i found on Amazon. So you will need to buy the Riser kit from SYA Warrior Risers, 1) 3 1/4 inch or 83mm hole saw from Home Depot or what ever Hardware store you use, 1) 3 inch Air filter but i bought 2 air filters so i can always have a clean one ready to go. Have not had any power loss that i can notice, but you will want to clean the pre filter every 2-3 rides

I have been running this set up for quit awhile now, probably about 1500 mile now and the OEM filter looks Very good so i have decided to just change out the OEM once a year and keep the pre filter clean which is litteraly easier that putting air in the tires...lol
