Bill10 Ah, thanks for the air hose information. Haven't looked but the photo in my service manual seems to confirm the drain hose is on the forward side of the air filter.

On the drowning part, I've done enough water crossings to make sure I know my depth before I go forward and forward progress doesn't stop until I come out the other side.

I actually have a photo of it in my blog when I did a post on the air filter clean/oil. It's the second photo. In the photo you'll see zip ties on the hose. I put those on because the hose keeps popping out of the slots.

Bill10,
In Photo #6 of your blogspot, you make comment about removing the plug in the clear plastic air box drain hose Before riding Deep Water crossings again. Do I understand that suggestion correctly?

DON'T REMOVE IT!!!
That drain hose in Ahead of the Air filter on the clean side of the air Box. One can suck DUST Up that open hose! And with the plug removed from the hose, water will raise up inside of it also!
The water in that hose not only came thru the air box snorkle, but passed thru the foam filter as well!
You really don't yet realize 'just how close' you came to drowning your engine.

When forward progress ceases thru the water, your 'Wake' closes in around you! The water that was just grazing the bottom edges of the side panels is suddenly over the top of your side panels or maybe even the top of your seat!

Plastic thing near the snorkel? What is it for?

What is this piece of plastic with the five round holes in it for? I jiggled it around a little and it just came out then I forgot to stick it back in when putting the seat and side panels back on. Does it have a purpose?
