Yes I did route the vacum lines up to the handle bars. I also blocked off the carb drain. Thanks for the pointer about turning off the gas. I only rode one day but I had the whole bike under water except the head light and the snorkel and it never missed a beat. Then I pulled the air box drain and nothing came out so I think it was a very succesful snorkel. I like the way it came out by only putting a hole in the oil cooler trap box instead on the fenders. I can replace that trap door box for almost nothing.
I cant see anything wrong with either way PVC or Pool Vacum Hose. I prefered to use flexible pool hose to avoid any tight bends. It also made doing the job very simple for me. I really like not cutting up any of my plastic. I did not have to cut or trim not one piece. This is something to keep in mind when trying to sell a bike in the future. Take a look at my yahoo pics and you can see it is an extremly clean way of snorkling a bike. I did use heat wrap on the hose around the cylinder head to avoid and burns. I know this works as my buddie did his the exact way and he has been riding for a while now.
