Is it just me or have other people stuck fly wire in the entry to their snorkels because the holes are big enough to let elephants in ??????..._____________________________________________

Yep, and a reuseable prefilter in the top of the snorkel!

Found a whole bird in my air box once. It was a sparrow but a whole one. Only way it could of got in there is down the snorkel.

i find the fly wire helps to keep out the bigger bugs and stuff. what i do however to let a bit more air in, is to cut small 1 cm squares into the fly wire(then bend back the ends). i figure that won't then have too detrimental an affect on the amount of air being restricted into the snorkel because of the flywire.

Ok thanks....

So it isnt just me thinking that the manufacturers could work a little harder at refinements...
