If you are going into a water crossing, a problem is that you are almost always going down hill when you hit the water. The initial splash goes right into the air intake snorkles and soaks your air filter leaving you in a bad way (if you have a paper air filter it can collapse which is why dirt bike guys don't use them).

Take two half liter water bottles and cut the tops off of them and put them over the snorkes. The carbs get plenty of air, but that first big splash doesn't drown the bike.
