I ride in South Florida and we have a lot of water, especially in our rainy season. In addition to the Warrior Riser Snorkel kit, I will also pack all the electrical connections with dialectic grease and see if I can zip tie as many of the electrical connections to add a bit additional protection. I believe the kit will address the differentials and hope the engine as well. If anyone has any experience with making the Talon 1000X s as water resistant as possible please add any comments and recommendations you may have. I hope to have the kit in for the upcoming weekend and will see how everything works out. I am not looking for a submarine, just additional protection. I am sure form time to time water will splash everywhere. I am having a ball with the Talon so far!

Last night I started applying the dielectric grease. I started with the connectors under the drivers seat and after packing them used zip ties to secure them. I attached a few pictures -- the process is very simple just takes a bit of time as the release tabs are under the connectors. Easy to remove the electronic boxes via the straps that attach them. The Snorkle kit should arrive Thursday so I should be able to paint it to match and assemble it before the weekend. Even if you are not near water, the zip ties on connectors would probably help everyone. In dusty areas the grease would attract sand; not sure that would be a good idea in the dunes. This is turning out to be a fun project:)

Hi Phantom Driver, send installation instructions if you still have them. I want to get a head start. Thanks

I have not purchased the snorkel kit yet I was inquiring if anyone else has yet. Curios if it would void warranty?
