    On all the three bikes we've had in the past couple years, I've re-routed two of the four vent hoses, usually under the seat. I did this on my DRZ because it would sputter/stall in a water crossing deep enough to dip all the vents at the same time. So I want to do this on my YZ125 (off-road project), but is it okay to route these into the airbox? On my other bikes I could avoid the airbox but still be under the seat - kinda. Will the air intake velocity cause a weird pressure difference in the carb with the vent so close? Does this make any sense? I'm I worried about it too much? :eek:

    pc racing sells a vent kit that mounts in the airbox for only $15.99 with filters.
