A word of warning - snorkel only as good as the piping !!


Recommended Posts

My M8 went to the main stealer in the country last week and parked in the forecourt while he went in to get a part. When he came out it was only to find that some one had nicked the top of his Safari Snorkel. While he was working for/with me yesterday I said that leaving the top open to the heavens is not a good idea and told him to come round and I would improvise a top untill he could source a new one. Today he came by and before putting on a top I thought I would use the opportunity to make sure that the snorkel was sealed properly and put my hand over the top while the engine was running - it did not even change rythm, floored the accelerator and still no difference. Found out that the pipe from the snorkel base to the air filter has more holes than a sieve but all on the hidden bottom part of the pipe.

So, check your snorkel every now and again - simple to do and might save you a fortune.
