Hey guys just wondering how you guys are running your snorkels in the rain? I was thinking about a 90 turned down. I am concerned about this thing sucking water. Thanks for your help.

I've always wondered the same thing, but I think that as long as you dont have it facing forward, it should be ok w/ just (1) 90's up there

When I flipped mine a week and a half ago, it snapped all 4 snorkles off at the rack. We were in a bad storm, it was absolutely pouring. I did not have the bike tuned yet for the 4th snorkle so I had to ride back with my hand covering it but the other 3 were exposed. I had very little water in the airbox, maybe a half of shot. This was about a 10 to 15 min ride back but I guess I did have my radiator helping to block the rain as long as I was moving good.

BTW, I like to run 180's on the top of mine but thats more for the mud slinging action. But yall do have me thinking again about how much I'm slowing my airflow by running 180's instead of 90's.

I have two 90s on each snorkel. So the tops of my snorkels make a 180. Here is a picture.

outlaw_brute08 you shouldnt have to worry about it to much because the tops of yours are also 180. All i would do for hauling on the trailer is buy a pvc plug like BigP posted in his thread and put it inside the airbox snorkel... Or if you wanna be a real redneck just throw some duct tape over the end of it while hauling it.
