Yes the Polaris RZR is designed for racing, and it does phenomenal at that. But anyone who understands UTVs and Powersports, in general, will quickly realize that the RZR could be a gnarly mud machine as well with its beefed-up drivetrain and differentials. Stock RZRs can handle pretty much any size tires, so it makes sense that many riders are snorkeling their Polaris RZRs to play in the mud and tear through shallow streams, creeks, rivers, and ponds. For the technically savvy rider, building a UTV snorkel from scratch may seem doable. But for those of us without machine shops or the confidence to fabricate a water-tight snorkel, there are still many options to be had. Highlifter, for instance, makes a variety of snorkel caps, snorkel filters, and complete snorkel kits for the Polaris RZR, Polaris RZR 800, Polaris RZR 900, and most other Polaris models and UTVs. These snorkels provide clean and dry air to the internals of the machine as well as vent combustion exhaust. They prevent mud, water, and other debris from entering the clutch and engine and are designed to fit precisely inside your RZR model.
In addition to Highlifter, companies such as SYA also specialize in snorkels and Polaris RZR snorkel kits. These and similar snorkels don’t restrict airflow, and unlike cheaper UTV snorkels, utilize filters and other devices that block mud and debris while allowing proper airflow and breathing. So if you occasionally encounter mud or water in your RZR, snorkeling it may not be a bad idea. A UTV snorkel will keep your engine, belt system, and venting points dry, all while giving you peace of mind that no matter how hairy the trail gets, you’ll have what it takes to conquer it!

Most mechanical parts and components of the Polaris RZR don’t like to get wet. And while some parts can handle a little moisture, other parts won’t function properly if they come into contact with liquids such as water or mud. But don’t let that stop you. With an RZR 800s snorkel kit, and RZR 900 s conversion kit, or any other type of RZR snorkel gear upgrade, you’ll be powering through those creeks, ponds, and mud holes without a second thought or hesitation. Triangle ATV is arguably one of the best RZR snorkels on the market. Upon first glance, this RZR snorkel looks pretty cheap, and almost seems like it would be easy to sling water up into it. But if you do your research you’ll see that it’s a well built unit and a great option for RZR owners.
This is a great 2015 Polaris RZR 900 snorkel kit. But if you want a machine that comes with a snorkel from he factory, the Highlifter edition is where it’s at. Although you still may have to buy the HL belt box cover, if you’re main reason for buying an RZR is mudding and the price isn’t an issue, the HL RZR is made for the mud. Alternatively, a lot of people with Turbo RZRs go with a kit that raises the belt intake. It’s not a full snorkel system, but does work to keep the belt try when riding over tire-high water. Another trick you can use to give your machine better protection against water without popping on a full blown RZR snorkel kit is to use factory Highlifter risers. All you do is just drill the factory breathers and put a 6 or 7 inch piece of pipe down in — just make sure that the bottom of your snorkel is flush with the factory breather.
A proper RZR snorkel gear upgrade is good, but if you’re riding an RZR, you’ll also probably want to snorkels for the intake to the cvt box, a snorkel for the exhaust for the cvt, a snorkel for the engine intake, and tubing for transmission, fuel tank, and front diff vent tubes. It doesn’t matter if you’re after an RZR 800s snorkel kit or an RZR 900 s conversion kit, most kits are simple to install and require only a bit of glue. On many RZR snorkels there is a drain that has to be glued shut, and the pieces of PVC need to be glued together as well.
