    Posting a video on the internet for everyone to see and the manufacturer to have for evidence is a sure way to get it voided. Post your vin if you want to expedite the process.

    It happened before.

    Why not just buy a submarine and be done with it?

    Even Super Atvs snorkel/vent line kit tells you not to go in water above the manufacturer's recommended height.

    If they snorkel it, then people are going to expect it to go deep in water. Putting the intake at the heights they do, keeps them from being responsible when you drown your UTV.

    They are all about the average inseam height of an American male. I guess manufacturers assume a man doesn’t want to spend the day with soggy balls. Feel free to have a balls deep joke run through the gutters you all have got for minds, I’ll wait.

    The Corp of Engineers has closed all of the good riding places in my area! When growing up and Teens we had some awesome muddy rides but no more! I don't want to do that anymore any ways, you guys Rock & Roll all you want. Nice video.

    I have the privilege of being able to ride rocks and hills. I get geography dictating what you’re able to ride. I only have a snorkel in case that shallow puddle in the middle of a trail isn’t a shallow puddle. It’s an insurance policy that I never plan on using, mine was installed before Honda came out with the “splash fix” for the intake.

    Right now all we have is dust I just took a cruise through our bone dry creek that usually has 3-4 feet of water in it even during the dry season.

    Hope that water is warm. If not, could cause ball joints to creep back up into the hub. Impressive.
