SP2 Snorkel mid-section

Mine has a hole in the side that looks like someone tried to patch.

Looking for a replacement mid-section for the ram air intake or snorkel

that hole is likely where the flapper valve was located. a new one will have the same hole.

Is the flapper removal a common DIY? How does everyone patch it afterwards? Mine looks like someone tried to do a really shitty fiberglass patch job

you can get fillers from dan kyle. or use a knockout filler if you want. they are the cheapest solution by far



available at any electrical retailer.




pretty much everyone removes the flapper.

Hold on! My hole is on the left-hand side - very similar to the hole in this piece on eBay - 00 06 Honda RC51 RVT Front Snorkel Stay Braket Upper Gauges Light RAM Air | eBay

@Duckhunter sells carbon fiber units and wont have the side hole for the flapper.
