A 2.125" I.D. flexible collapse-proof wire reinforced (central vac) hose used as an intake snorkle for clutch & carbs, one each. The two hoses go straight up and the openings are inside the pod. Tested them this winter, they stay flexible and haven't cracked in temps down to almost -30C. To mount under the pod requires flexibility because turning the handlebars requires it. As far as snorkles go... This mod is pure STEALTH! Haven't done the clutch exhaust hose yet, that one's next. Might post pics this weekend... Or maybe not.

A horn, left hand push button mounted on the bars. Gotta 'BEEP BEEP' folks on the trails sometimes. Everyone I catch up to ride so darned slow and won't leave room to pass because they don't realize someone's behind. Many have mirrors, but for some reason never look behind so they can't know I'm there. A BEEP BEEP noise should work just fine. I should have a sign on the back of the ATV "Ride Fast! Or stay off MY trail!!!" ;) :lol:

Headlights. I mounted some bright 55w high-beams above the rad intake. I don't need them except for when the plow is mounted and I need to plow on Friday nights when I get home. The stock light beams are obstructed when the plow is all the way up. You can see the plow, and 40-50 feet ahead, but it leaves you guessing about what's directly in front of the ATV. The alternative might have been a transparent Lexan blade. :lol:

Sorry man but i got all they had. one of those deals where buy this stuff and stock the store with it and gradually reduce the price til it sells . They were at 90% off when i got them. I was in there before that and they had bumpers and all kind of stuff i wish i would have bought the bumpers.

I don't know yet... LOL Just put them on... Walmart had them on clearance for $10.00 and the were around 2" just perfect for that little hole! I had to fab up a bracket but they are both adjustable... kinnda concerned with the stator output...it's not as high as the 500-700 cats... more worried about melting the plastic "grating" in front of them lights...

I don't know if anyone else will say so, but I think it counts, what better accessory for a V2 than a 400 and a 500? Now just about anyone can ride, huh? Congrats. man. Rockerdude
