I have 2 filtered carb vent hoses going up under my seat. That was as per the instructions at least.

When you do that, can you take pictures of which air vent hoses go under the seat?

I was lucky.  5 more inches of water and I would have swamped out for sure.

I was able to lean the bike over on both sides and drain out most of the puke gas, and it was rideable for the rest of the day.

Do you have the filtered vent hoses or are you gonna be getting them? I went with the 7602Racing ones.

The lower ones actually drain the fuel in a tip-over, you don't want those to be re-routed upwards. It's the ones on the upper part of the carb that get re-routed to under the seat. Can't be more specific as I don't have access to my bike at the moment.

I put in the filtered lines to avoid the "dirt creep" into the carb. The water stalling out was a side benefit.

One vent gets looped over the top of the carb and down next to the bowl

The drain goes straight down

The others go up under the tank.

All but the drain get filtered

 

I ordered a colored silicone hose kit

Upon further inspection, it's clear I need more 'freshening'.....

Was the parking job in the first picture the result of a get off or the lack of a kickstand ? Are you parked at the intersection of a switchback ?

 

At least you didn't need a kickstand in the second picture !

That is not an intersection

See the branch in the picture? There is a much larger, lower one before it.

I pretzled my body to avoid it, and lost my line, right into that wash-out in the trail

I was going slow enough to not do a full endo, but more of a side-o.

Tube routing correction:

 

Left side of carb has a 'T' section with (2) hoses

Right side of carb has a 'T' section with (2) hoses

Bowl cover has an over flow with (1) hose

 

Take one left and one right hose and connect them with a new  plastic or brass 'T' fitting, add a section of hose to create one hose end.  Put a filter on it and run it under the tank

Take the other left and right nose, do the same thing, but run them down to the hose holder near the swingarm. Put though holder and add a filter.

Take the bowl over flow, and route it in a loop: down, up over the height of the float bowl, and back down through the hose holder deal-y on the carb.  No filter!

 

Now the carb will breath (receive atmospheric pressure on the fuel in the bowl) even if the lower tubes are under water. 

 

Why not run all 4 hoses under the tank?

Because you need as many possible atmospheric pressure points as possible, and hoses in the breeze get different pressure than those that are isolated. 

You want to average the pressure out.

So you need to separate them.

Nice!  I bought a new TRD chain guide based on this recommendation.

I can see from one of your pics you have the vent tub capped off above the starter gear. Isn't that where the oil drains back too from the crank case vent? I only ask because I got my bike in a pile of parts and I'm still trying to get everything back together properly.

It's not a problem

The YZ vents into the airbox or on the ground.

Ok awesome. Would you be able to post up some detailed pics? I would like to see how it's done.

No pics for about a month
Motor is being fully rebuilt as we speak

All you do os temove the T, cap the starter vent, and route the hose into the airbox like stock
All hosing junctions available at Pep Boys

Ok, got it.  So, what prevents oil build up in the airbox?  Because with the vented air, there's oil mist. Correct?  Wouldn't that create a puddle of oil eventually?  Did you notice an increase in oil consumption?  

Man, what I would give to have a pep boys here...

Unless you are running at 8k rpms for 50 miles, you won't notice anything substantial in the air box........unless you do a nice long wheel-stand, or go upside down.... no different from stock.

Have long wheelies ever caused problems with the crankcase tube?
