iirc, it's for cold starts. Supposedly it lets in warm air from within the motor. It's emissions related, iirc.

correct me if I wrong.

Went to remove the snorkel today and made an interesting discovery...
So, I pulled the cone filter and am cleaning it up. Now I have a spare K&N stock filter in inventory, though.

I have the cup airbox and I honestly miss the sound the stock de-snorkeled airbox made with the velocity stack. Upgrade because of the Katana 2.

Quickly reading through.. some guys added a coupler to the end of the air box after removing the snorkel...and some left it alone and just yanked the snorkel..

Pros/cons? Whats the best method? Any negatives to this mod?

BOE probably has best, and most tested, solution. Car sounds good, too.
