Air Box lower openning ??????????

Can anyone tell me where the hose shown on the picture ( to the left of the number 12 ) goes to? and what is the part number for said pipe?

My 110 does not have it at all.

Thanks

I don't think it is a hose, its just the same rubber piece that is shown on that opening int he photo above. Its designed as a drain, to let water out that gets into the assembly. I think the only difference is that the drawing is cut off on the bottom rendition, making it look more like a hose..

I have nothing but a nub where something is suppossed to go.

Now my question since that is low, what would the purpose of my snorkel be? , I mean wouldn't water get into the Air Filter through that openning?

Can it be plugged? Any consecuences from plugging it?

It has a little rubber nipple on it with a slit to let water / oil out, when you are sucking air in the slit seals so water should not be sucked up into the intake.

If you seal it there is a chance that you could gather water or oil in the filter housing, without the rubber nub bit you risk sucking water

just happen to have the page with the part number printed and sitting on my desk

no personal expereince but I have always read that needs to be properly sealed when going into deep water. I would not risk it any other way. it is really just to drain dust out of the filter housing

as Dave pointed out its called a dump valve. An expanding type freeze plug from any auto parts store will cure the hole. As RenChing pointed out these things suck and as they age harden the two flaps tend to open-ie ceate a hole that sucks water in.
