If you dont ride very deep water then you can also cut out the 2 right side pre marked cutouts..

That thing would not come out without first removing the battery strap catch first. I tried every thing... Eventually I drilled and re-rivoted the catch in place. It was much less frustrating...
If you do drill be cautious not to let any 'drillings fall into the air box.

I was unable to remove the snorkle without drilling the rivits.
That thing would not come out .....be cautious not to let any 'drillings fall into the air box.
If you decide to drill I suggest you place a cloth in the battery holder to catch the filings, when complete, wipe the inside of the airbox out with oily cloth (you can cover your filter as well if you want) then remove you air filter and shake out just to make sure. if you manage to do without drilling, well done, I couldn't budge mine and wasted 30mins trying...
enjoy the ride

I had to CUT mine out on the 04', it was molded to the the entire airbox.... it gave me approx. 1.5 square inches more for air volume and took out the "vane" in the middle.
Does this sound right? Sorry no pics
