sorry for the late reply - im pretty sure the oxford grips are universal. a previous owner put them on.

has anyone hasd touble with there tenere dying after a water crossing. it would start and idle but die as soon as the throttle was touched. the airbox appeared to be dry and got the bike going again after draining the carb

its had a yamaha airbox mod done to it (99 model). anyone had a similar issue?

mine does the same. It's a '91 660.

I really don't know what causes it. It can also happen on low water crossings.
What I do when I have to keep going is use the choke. The bike then runs better. After accellerating the engine the bike runs OK again and I close the choke.

Yee Har, I'm not crazy after all. I have had this very problem twice now since buying my 99 model one year ago.

I posted up on the thread named XTZ660 jetting??..... again! about my dramas and efforts to rectify the problem. This thread was more related to jetting, just so happened the symptions where the same.

So far, the problem has gone away by it own accord. However I need to fix this problem as I am doing the APC2011 rally in July and given the amount of rain AU has been getting, chances are, there will be lots of water crossings in the 7,500km two week ride, so I really need to get this sorted.

I do like the suggestion of using the choke, I kind of did this just the other day to sort the latest episode

What I intend to do now is to replicate the problem and try to isolate the issue.
Will keep you informed

sounds like a good trip - how long are you going away for?

hmmm, interesting comment. I might check the work shop manual to see if there is a snorkle over the primary filter. Wonder if this was part of the AU conversion which removed the paper filter and put in oiled foam filter.
I will keep this in mind, however all the symptions and fixs do point to water in the carby. Stay tuned

on my bike there is a slight gap where the rubber mudguard meets the base of the seat. this may allow water that is splashed up to get thru and into the airfilter. ive wedged a peice of foam between the frame rails to fill this gap and hopefully trap any water. hope it doesnt get too soaked and allow even more water thru

will see if it works next weekend - my xr is a bit neglected since i got the tenere so taking that out this weekend

Hm, which part of airbox you define as snorkel?

on the top of the airbox when you take the seat off. if you have the parts catalogue it on page b14 part #17. it look like it points forward so the air is only sucked in from the front

mine has had the yamaha mod done where this is removed and replace with a prefilter. so air is sucked in from all directions including any splashes of water that have managed to get thru

someone might be able to take a pic if theres is still on there
