Anytime I’m out riding and I have to get into some deep water a little voice in my head is saying please don’t stall, please don’t stall. Even though it has never happened to me before, it’s always a fear. The last thing I want to do in the middle of riding is get towed back to the garage to drain the oil and get the water out of the motor.
Since these scenarios are rare I don’t worry too much about it, but for mudders that are always swamping their ATV’s, one of the best ways to protect your bike is to install an exhaust that is designed with a snorkel accessory.
HMF Racing builds an ATV exhaust model called the Swamp Series. There’s also a Swamper XL (Extra Loud) Series that offers a little more power. Both of these models are designed for deep water ATV mudding and offer a sweet setup for adding a snorkel.
This setup allows you to easily install and uninstall the exhaust snorkel and its design ensures a perfect fit. Not only does the snorkel look clean and professional it also sounds exceptionally good. Even with the snorkel on your bike it will still sound like an ATV…not a Go-Kart.
The HMF Swamp Series exhaust & snorkel are made from stainless steel, it will not rust, unlike many homemade remedies that consist of a pipe welded onto the exhaust…not cool and it sounds bad.
This setup is definitely the best option for serious ATV mudding.
