People buy UTVs like the Honda Pioneer to take them places a car could never. Dense forests, rugged mountains, harsh deserts, and bumpy fields. While these types of terrain are much more fun and exciting to drive on than paved roads, they also present much more hazards. A common hazard many Honda Pioneer owners face is water. Be it a stream, puddle, or torrential downpour of rain, you’re almost certain to get wet at some point during the ownership of your Honda Pioneer. While a little water won’t hurt your Honda Pioneer, frequent or excessive exposure can inflict permanent, or at least very expensive, damage. This is what Honda Pioneer snorkels are for.
Whether you go in water or not, running a snorkel on your Honda Pioneer is well worth the money. Not only will you guard against mud, dust, and water infiltration, but your air filter will stay cleaner and last four times as long with a snorkel. If your Pioneer came with a factory snorkel, it might leak, not seal correctly, or lack an airbox gasket. So whether you’re looking for snorkel-related components or an entire Honda Pioneer snorkel kit, we’ve got everything you need to keep your Honda Pioneer dry and mud-free. Extended vent lines are an important feature that will protect your machine, but your differentials, electrical components, and crankcase should also be snorkeled and protected against water damage. We’ve seen too many Honda Pioneers get moisture in the motor by splashing through a little puddle, riding in the rain, or from washing too vigorously. The way water splashes up and the fan splashes it into the intake is hard to avoid no matter where you ride.
Think you don’t need a snorkel for your Honda Pioneer because you only ride in dry environments? Think again. Even if you stick to riding in dry terrain such as deserts and mountains, the dust kicked up in these places can cause just as much damage as water. Dust is insidious in that it finds a way into everything. While water eventually dries, dust continues to build up and corrode important components of your Honda Pioneer over time. Thankfully, snorkels can combat dust just as well as water. The question is, would you rather spend a few bucks on a snorkel kit now, or a whole lot more in the future to completely replace your Honda Pioneer’s engine?
Sure, you could attempt to jerry rig your own homemade snorkel with silicone calk and PVC pipe, but companies like Snorkel Your ATV (SYA) and Triangle ATV provide you with all you need to easily snorkel your Honda Pioneer in one easy order with their snorkel kits. Their snorkel kits are super clean and symmetrical, making them blend in and look like they came stock with the Honda Pioneer. Why go through the trouble of shopping for and buying all the individual parts and components you need to build a snorkel when you can get everything you need in one easy order from our site? And unlike the paper-thin factory plumbing which can be easily punctured, deformed, or disconnected by a stick or errant rock, aftermarket Honda Pioneer snorkel kits are tough as nails. The snorkel kit by Triangle ATV, for example, comes with a corrosion-resistant steel riser mounting plate and multi-layer, wire-reinforced, polyethylene snorkel house. A leaky snorkel is a useless snorkel, so do yourself a favor and get a quality snorkel kit for your Honda Pioneer today to save yourself from costly repairs tomorrow.

At the end of the day, the cost of a good snorkel kit for your Honda Pioneer is just a fraction of what repairs and part replacements from water damage will cost you.
