    lizrdbrth - the “Y” link in the carb - and snorkels ......

    Recently, the question of the “Y” link in the carb tube came up – for those of you unfamiliar with it, read here - https://tw200forum.com/forum/technica...offered-2.html

    If you have the time and the inclination, the whole thread is well worth reading – but to cut a long story short, skip to post #14

    And if you wanted to know where the “snorkel” is on the TW – post #43 on the same thread is a good starting point ……

    It occurs to me that we have many new members since that thread was posted - stuff that we “old timers” take for granted, but things that our newcomers need to be aware of from time to time – hence this post

    As usual, lizrdbrth has it pretty much nailed, and he is still sorely missed around here

    “Obscure” information – perhaps - but things like this can save you from being stranded

    The more you understand how and why your bike “works”, the more you’ll get out of it – sometimes we overlook the simple things – or at least, need reminding of them ……

    Skid plate deep is the most you can hope for without the vent tube mod. With the mod, half way up the cyl. is as deep as I've gotten, and it still kept going. A cheap and worthwhile mod for any TW ridden off road.

    Being both cheap and lazy what I have done is simply route one vent hose up and the other one down. I honestly think this will take care of 95% of what the more extensive plumbing does and so far it has worked well for me.

    If you look at the carburetor, one vent tube points up and the other down.

    I used 1'4" barb and tubing my wife had around for a garden drip system - good tight fit, still have not done any deep water stuff but feel more confident having it on there.

    After the Cashe Creek Crossing that Tony has pictured above, I used the same method that Donzo has used. Now my only problem with water crossings is keeping an eye out for that dastardly Joe Band.

    I'm hooking up the members that attend Green Ridge until I run out of supplies.
    3/16 Ys 5/16 hose works best.

    I think mine had a y from the factory. It had 125 miles when I got it. I don't think anyone did any mods. I always wondered why it was like that but just left it alone. I have been through water nearly to my knees with no issues other than me stalling not giving enough gas because of the extra force going through the water.

    These are great, but all the pics are dead. Hard to picture what they are sayin in those two posts. Anyway someone could update them (copy paste) with pics added for clarity, for the new guys, as you say, lol...
