I was just thinkin u could put a ball valve on the snorkles and if it's gunna sink shut the ball valve. Never heard of anyone doing it. Just popped in my head seemed cool.

Ya,I like my toys also. So I don't test them up
Problem is, 99% of the time you don't know it's going under till it's too late.
Thats y you take and make 2 to 3 loops on the crank case vent line 99% of the time when you sink it the water goes from the air box threw the crank case vent line in to the bottom end if u put 2 to 3 loops it makes it impossible for the water to go that route unless u flip under water enough just dont turn it over till you get the water off the top of the piston
Found this picture. Somebody put it on a recon
Snorkel savers. if you can get the bike shut off before it goes under they are supposed to not let water through.
I figured i wasn't the first person to think of it
I had a idea of putting a check valve on the exhaust. Air is pushing out keeping the valve open .. but when the bike dies the valve shuts and doesn't let water back into your motor.
That could work hard to get a perfect seal but it would help. Or get some electric cut outs like on a hot rod
Even if it wasn't a perfect seal it would still give you those few critical seconds to get the pipe up out of the water.
