Awesome water crossing video thanks Roge. I've now been without my DRZ for nearly two years :( On a positive note it looks like I am moving back to Canberra and once I am settled I will pickup another DRZ and start paying attention to website again.

Hi Wayno, I researched this alot before I did mine and found this.....

It is a mistake to run vent hoses into the air box. You are getting away with it because the other end of the vents are open and when submerged in water the you are going slow. The purpose of the vents is to keep a standared reference pressure (atmospheric) on the fuel in the float bowl. Anything that upsets that standard reference pressure affects fuel delivery. Pressure in the air box is not atmospheric, at least no all the time. On a KTM, the "air box" is not very well sealed, more of an air chamber. Your vent design is good but I would move the end of the hose out of the air box to some place in still air.



I "T" vented mine and ran the hoses up near the Radiator (see pic)
Very easy, yes there is only the two. Once you pull your tank off it is pretty easy to see which two. If your in Brisbane, you can come over if your still not sure how to do it if that helps.
I set mine up for the run up to the tip (Cape York) and back. Ran very well through the numerous creek crossings

LOL yeah still OK up here.
Good luck with it. I was thinking how on earth do I do this too, but honestly, once you have got your tank off, it is an easy (and a must do for deep creek crossings) mod to do. We did a practice ride (fully set up for the Cape) before we set off, and before I "T" vented it, my bike would stop in the middle as soon as the water was above the foot pegs. Not anymore....

Ok this is going to be interesting,I hope you understand without pics, just bear with me LOL.

Looking down at your carby (with the carb still installed on the bike, tank off) there are two "clear hoses that run over the top of the carb itself. These are the hoses I "T" vented.

Now for something VERY interesting for those how do not wish to replace the stock "clear hoses. (I replaced the lot with blue silicon hose, BUT you certainly don't have too).
SUZUKI have already T vented the carb, some people just run one line up and one down.
The T vents are on each side of the carb, roughly half way down.

The people that just re route one line up (each side) will have 3 "clear lines hanging out the bottom. Stay with me..... lol. This is the easiest way.

The way I did it was to install an extra 2 T vents on the top of the carb where the hoses loop over. I now have 2 lines heading up to the radiators and still have the factory look of 5 "clear" (mine are blue) hoses hanging out the bottom. This way is harder and created more work than I had too, but that was what I wanted.

Most IMPORTANTLY both ways do the EXACT same thing, only one way (the way I did it) takes longer and costs more..... oh well, the blue silicon hoses look trick lol.

Good luck with it.
