Nothing manufactured yet. Several people have homemade ones. I am still waiting for some pictures in detail on how they did it.

Looking forward to your numbers. Be sure to post your elevation too. I haven't been able to dial mine in yet. Is it a pretty easy procedure?

Is anyone else having the same problems as me? I cross a lot of creeks containing running water maybe 12-15" deep. Usually not on the first one, but for sure by the 3rd of 4th one, the belt will start to slip, sometimes requiring me to stop and fast idle in neutral to get the damn thing to go. In looking at the intake on the CVT, I doubt that the water is getting that high, but I could be wrong. Last ride, I took the air box cover off and there was some standing water present. (I do have a CVT drain plug installed and didn't have more than a drop of water come out after the last incident. The CVT cover gasket is A-OK so I don't know where the water is entering except through the intake.

Really a pain, especially when all the Prairies that are in the pack don't even hickup, and since I NEVER had a problem with my old Prairie on these same crossings?

A snorkel may just be the only fix?:shrug:

When you guys are doing snorkels has any one tried to do the back one yet? I have looked at it and I can't figure out a good way. Any ideas?:shrug:

Mine does the same thing. I mentioned it to my dealer yesterday and he told me (in all his knowing wisdom) that just splashing through the water won't get the CVT box wet. Well today I pulled the plastics off and the CVT inlet box had lots of dirty residue in it where water had splashed over the "Splash Guard" and gotten into the CVT box. I took a few pictures to show him how it was "Impossible" to do.

I have seen the rear snorkel for the belt run accross from the left to the right side of the bike, under the seat.then diagonally up the sideto the front rack. Then up so that the front and rear snorkel for the belt are both sticking up in the front. Not sure if I am explaining it very good but I have no pictures to show how it was done.

If anybody else has any snorkel ideas I would love to hear them. I am planning to snorkel in the next couple of weeks.
