Brought to you by the same folks who brought you the Submacopter?

I would worry about the electronics. The connectors on a motorcycle aren't usually sealed. I imagine he also had to seal at least all the improtant stuff to keep it running.

Seems like a lot of work to play in the water unless that area floods a lot and this is the best way to get through.

LiveLeak is totally down today as far as my internet connection can tell, so I'm just going to assume this was a scene from a new James Bond movie.

ltdanman44: intake on each handlebar, nice


I only watched it once, but I'm pretty sure there was a snorkle intake on one handlebar and the exhaust was routed to the other.

WaywardSon: ltdanman44: intake on each handlebar, nice

Exhaust was the white tube running up behind the seat. He split the intake into two tubes for some reason. Not sure why, as i doubt a 125cc would see restriction from one tube that size.

I thought both the intake and exhaust were going over the seat, but I guess it makes more sense for it to be on the handlebars and I'm too lazy to check the video again..

Floods are more often fresh water than salt aren't they?

Yeah, but it was a Honda and not some craptastic Chinese knock off. Their small bikes are still solidly built, some of the big bikes for the US market are not quite as well made (but still better than a Harley).

That goes without saying.

Jumped around the video and it looks like he has a split hose intake secured to the windscreen, yes overkill for a 125cc. Also a plastic (lol) tube attached to the muffler taped to the back seat.

I once took my K75s into nearly 3 feet of water under an overpass, muffler submerged and pumping out bubbles, the intake was just above the waterline. Went through that at about 5mph for 100 feet, didnt die or kill the engine and the bike served me well for over a decade after that (even ran through a bambi). Germans and Japs, both tried to fight the world, both make the best bikes in the world by far.

This, plus that little 125 probably had a simple sealed CDI module. The connectors won't cause a problem with water intrusion, at least not right away. Props to the guy for farting around in the water. If that had been here there would be calls to ban all plastic tubing.
