Sanny, I bought the new 06 rear master cyl and it doesnt fit. bang your head The shaft that engages the cylinder is too short to fit on the existing foot pedal.
Do you have a part number that I can compare mine to?

Cheers

I bought the 05 rear master cyl, 100 bucks more than the 06.....basically the same as the 06, but comes with additional hardware to extend the brake shaft and mounting brackets for the new resovoir....hope to install it over the next week...will let you know how it pans out...

Cheers

UPDATE July 30/07.....Well finally got to her and it went on nicely....just a real pain in the @#[email protected] bleeding the breaks...had real problems gettin fluid to the caliper......had to get a turkey injector (big needle) and reverse the procedure...I pushed the fluid up throught the caliper up to the new cylinder and up to the resevoir....I just put the resevoir under the seat and tie strapped it down.

now I finally have rear breaks....but they dont have too much stopping power....just abt right when going down those really steep slopes, in addition to the engine brake (on belt).

Cheers

Throw away the plug and instructions for the limp mode reset. All I did was solder the wires together just outside the belt case and will never, ever experience limp mode again. You do have to be a little more aware of your clutches so that you can hear them slamming together on a narrow part of the belt if you smoke one. It is quite obvious. All the other tips are great, keep them coming!!!

mortrider74, welcome call to ArcticChat! :chug:

Cooool Pic! kewlpics

Dealer did it under warranty for me... He replaced the entire 04 rear brake system with 06 parts... Caliper, master cylinder, and remote reservoir.

The 04 had the reservoir & master built into one unit, no remot reservoir. So what I think is going on is, the bit of air in the reservoir gets into the wrong side of the piston in the master housing.

On the 06, the reservoir is mounted remotely by a hose, and no air can get near the piston in the master cylinder.

Because KOD's site seems to have some intermittent issues, I've taken his instructions (which are linked in the first post here) and converted it to a PDF for you guys. These are HIS instructions, not mine. Wish I could take credit as they are rock solid, but they are his.

I snorkeled my 06 V-twin for under 20 bucks if you remover your radator access panel you will see your motor and belt intake comeing out just put a 90% elbow on them and bring it straight up to get the look you want, then mark on the access cover were the snorkels will come through and cut it out, then glue everything together and your good to go oh yea remove the stock airbox scoop thing from over the raditor

Snorkling and exhaust kits

Hey guys after looking for awhile I have not found much for either of these subjects. I have never had to snorkel a atv but my son and some friends all have there done and I enjoy riding with them.
So it would help a lot with the places they go. But like you said I don't want to have to rejet however I do believe it had already been done. Second my exhaust the longer pipe of the 2 is pitted and rusted out in several places and i want to put a after market exhaust But don't want to break the bank any suggestions.
