Out for an exploration ride this past Friday, and couldn't resist crossing this creek.
That water is looking high enough to cause a stall. It's a good excuse to remind people of the carb Y vent mod. If you are unaware, one of the hoses that go out and down at the bottom of the bike is a vent hose for the carb. If the end of that tube goes under water, it can't vent, so there is no flow of fuel and the bike stalls.

I will look into that. Thanks!That carb vent mod is next on my list. Great easy insurance
I was the guinea pig and crossed first. I was nervous watching her come across, and didn't expect my voice to end up in the video. Haha! I honestly think she did better crossing both ways, than I did.... but I'm gonna credit the fat tires. Hehe...That was awesome. She did great.
