well went camping and riding with some freinds and got to test out the snorkle in the creek for the first time. worked great, today went back to the creek and played with some other wheelers then it happened. climbing out a hole the throttle stuck , needless to say snorkles didn't work well well when we hit the creek bank and she roll over on her top. gonna drain her and see if she will come back to life. damest thing out of the 15ppl watching no one was videoing. hahaha

I can't remember how many times mine has been rubber side up in a creek. I made the mistake of trying to start mine without checking for water in everything. I ended up pulling the pistons.

Ouch! Glad ya'll are ok! Maybe she didn't take any in & you can just flush once for good measure.

well boys, still dont know what made the throttle hang wide open. but she was full, from the carbs down good ol river water and sand. filter gave up and let sand in the carbs. but oh well. we will see what happens
