Im in the process of getting ready to snorkel a 05 500 auto, In the process of putting on the snorkles he's wanting me to put a penland slip on as well. Now il be honest im a yamaha guy but I'm everyones go to guy for this stuff (clutching, snorkles,etc). I read the full 68 pages on the snorkling thread, but can somebody point me in a direction of which jets I need to go with, and is 1.5" pipe enough or will I need 2" for everything. Thanks in advance

With 1.5 inch pipes you more than likely won't need to rejet. The limiting factor is the factory intake which is about 1.5 inner diameter.

X2 the dyno jet kit really helps. I have the same machine and snorkelled last year, I started with all 2" without the dyno jet kit and had to reduce it down to about 1 5/8' with the muffler mod. Installed jet kit, clipped the spring and drilled the slide, went back to 2" on the intake and its night and day difference. Before it would barley spin the tire in gravel, now it will pick the front wheels with a little tug on the bars.

2 inch for the belt without a doubt....hmf exhaust should come with box of earplugs for the driver and everyone within a mile. i wouldnt suggest it at all, modded stock is the way to go with cats.

The slide inside the carb has a hole in it that allows air to transfer back and forth as the slide lifts and lowers, there is long spring that holds the slide down in the carb. By clipping the spring (2 coils) your shortening it therefor less pressure on the slide, then enlarge the hole in the slide by drilling it to 1/8" I believe. This allows the the slide to lift faster and gives better throttle response.
