Got me one of those Triangle Snorkels. I made sure all rubber fittings were tight. I even siliconed the lid to the air box. If I get in some deep water, over the seat, water still gets in the air box. Not enough to kill it, but then again, I don't stay in deep water to long. What else should I do? Do I need to silicone around all of the rubber inside the airbox or what? Any help here would be great! Thanks

there is a rubber piece that connects the airbox to the tube, well on the inside of the airbox put silicon all around the intake tube

Make sure and check all 4 hoses that run in your air box. There is a drain plug, snorkel hose, carburetor hose, and then another breather for your motor....Im not sure what it does but I know it's pretty important!

The crank case vent below your air filter is very low in the air box. If you get enough water in the air box to reach the crank case vent, water shoots straight into your motor, turning your oil into mayonnaise! For a little added insurance against water entering the engine, I removed the factory crank case hose and bought 2 feet of the same diameter hose and routed it from my air box, over the carb intake tube and back down to the engine. This will allow the air box to fill well past the crank case vent opening without dumping water into your engine.
