Was kinda thinking the same, but I guess his point is that the Tiger rider mostly rides around the puddles. Instead of through them...

The puddles were avoided to keep the camera lens clear for the viewer. Back to your regularly scheduled posi-lock programming.

so your comment of the tiger not liking water was really a refference about keeping the lense clean? throw some rain-x on there and blast through them all

Give that man a cigar. Thanks for the Rain-X idea.

I've ridden the route of that video many times (on a DRZ) and it is much rougher than it looks (video does not give a sense of inclination). Decent riders can find some sections a handful on much lighter bikes at much slower speeds. (Not me, of course.)

It gets easier every time, but I'm going to make a filter for my snorkel. I cut up & old dirtbike air filter & I'll stuff it (oiled of course) into that plastic piece. That way I can take it out & replace it without removing anything but the seat.

Thats a good idea. I'd be affraid to restrict the air too much though... I would almost rather route a snorkel all the way up under the rear seat to get it up high...

Holan crash bars

So finally, after waiting a bit more than a month after the delivery of the actual bars the spacers have now arrived....

Gonna mount them this weekend (as long as there won't be a torrential downpour) and if anyone has any questions I might just as well document it and answer them as I go along.

The piece I cut out fits that plastic diverter perfect. Not tight at all & the rubber part of the snorkel has a cross bar to keep it from getting sucked into the airbox. The problem with routing the snorkel to the rear seat is that the added length will make it harder to pull air. You would need to make the tubing a lot bigger diameter then the stock snorkel.
