Re: Riot under water

When you say deep water, how deep of water do you think you might cross?

Re: Riot under water

I've had my Revolt in a few streams. A slow, to medium speed is best and don't stop. To much speed and you'll get a bath! Keep the clutches dry, you should be OK. They can take some splashing, but they'll slip if they're under water.
The Riot has 35 cm of ground clearance and there is another 10 to 15 cm to the clutch, so 45cm to 50cm of water.
You could always change to a taller tire too. 27" (68cm)

Re: Riot under water

I drive a pgo bug racer 500i and when i go deep the belt gets water and slips.
I know the revolt works in the same sistem.
My question is:does any one know about some snorkel kit?
I think 50 cm is enough but with a snorkel i will be more confident.

Re: Riot under water

The air filter intake is at the level of your shoulders behind the seats. If you needed it higher than that a hose could be added to take it clear to the roof if you needed it. You would need to extend the transmission vent hose too for the water issue just to prevent water contamination.

Here's what I did. These are VW crank case breathers.
The left one is for the transmission, the right for the Oil reservoir.

Re: Riot under water

What Bearfoot did is ideal because you can relocate the vent high in the frame.
