No offense taken, and no I didn't realize the thread had split to a second page. Sorry if I came off defensive, I've gotten a lot of comments before because people automatically assume it's just "spa hose" or "vacuum cleaner hose" and post w/o reading the info provided.
It is somewhat what you could call a "glorified vacuum hose", as it is simply an industrial flex ducting hose. - I have at least 20 bikes running this hose, a couple of which have been done for almost 10 years now w/o any problems, very few other snorkel jobs can claim that on machines that get used most every weekend. Plus, it's super easy to work around since you can simply unhook one end & flex it back out of the way.
I have never & will never run an all hard-pipe snorkel. Too much of a pita to do, even more of a pita to work around, and far more prone to fatigue/crack/failure over time due to not allowing for flex. Also more likely to mess up plastics over time, again due to lack of flex.
