I was looking for this pic of the airbox to investigate the fording height. Its a high intake, facing backwards and water cant fall to the actual throttle body intakes, all good.

The pic shows I investigated it a bit already and this was not the deepest crossing. The bike never stumbled or missed a beat but the bodywork did catch a lot of water even throwing it over the windscreen on one crossing, The resistance against the water slowed the bike noticably.
