Never fear the deep end, conquer any river or stream, and keep mud out of your machine’s vents and intakes with a Can-Am Maverick snorkel kit. The OEM Can-am snorkel kit isn’t bad, but it’s kind of hard to justify spending more than half a grand on a UTV snorkel kit. But popping on an expensive snorkel is way better than getting a new motor because your old one got waterlogged. SnorkelYourATV makes a pretty good snorkel kit for the Can-Am Maverick, but you have to glue everything together and make sure it’s done right, lest you glue the elbow pieces in the wrong direction. And if you are experiencing any problems with your machine’s belt getting too hot, you can put a fan with blowers on the CVT hose of your snorkel to keep it cool. But if this still doesn’t work, you probably have an issue with your clutches — a misalignment that is causing friction and heating up. You shouldn’t normally see belt temps over 140 after hitting it hard on the trail or road, and your Maverick should feel like it moves freely, not like you’re pulling a boot anchor. If not the clutches, motor mounts going bad can also cause similar issues.
Whatever snorkel kit you decide to go with on your Can-am Maverick, each kit has it’s pros and cons. Cheaper kits can work, but we’ve heard of cases where some snorkels burn on the exhaust. This is likely due to the type of plastic used in the snorkel kit. PVC is common, but other, types of heat-resistant plastics are also frequently used in UTV snorkel kits. Plus, if you’re thinking about trading in your Maverick in the next few years, you should know that most dealers don’t want to trade for a rig with snorkels. But if you’re anything like us, those creak crossings and mud holes are just too tempting to pass up. Do your research, and if you find that a snorkel kit is right for you and your Side by Side, give us a holler and we’ll set you up with the best Can-am Maverick snorkel kit money can buy!
