Reviews that have come out after the Kodiaks release and after the media got their hands on them might have tidbits about the Kodiak, but aside from that, looking at older Kodiak reviews, taking in that knowledge and connecting the dots to the Kodiak will give you a good framework of knowledge..

Probably until your exhaust intake valve is covered by water? Found and interesting photo of something snorkeling with their Kodaik 700 and wanted to share.

Testing my Snorkel

I made my own Snorkel Kit for my 2016 Kodiak 700. I used all 2 inch pipe (everything purchased from Lowes). After fitting all the pipes I marked all the fitting with a sharpie and removed kit. I then primed and glued all fittings. I then reinstalled on the Kodiak and took it out to the water. It worked great, so I removed it and took it into a spray bed shop and had them shot it all with black bed liner (everything except where the 2 inch rubber grouments went). Then reinstalled everything and put lithium grease into electrical fittings. Got a great 22 second video, but I haven't figured out how to post it or pics!

For using image links and embedding them here to show up as full images (this is especially useful if you have a lot) is to use the BB Code image tags:

I've had mine so deep that the only thing sticking out of the water was the top of the right front wheel and the front rack/battery cover. It was entirely unintentional - I had been traveling a certain trail regularly, bringing apples into my hunting spot, and had no problems. We had a record dry summer here in NS, and it didn't "click" with me that maybe driving through the same spot after we got 150MM (about 6") of rain one weekend. I came over the small hill and the bike just went "SPLORCH" and was buried. Momentum would have normally carried me through, but I was towing a trailer with 300 pounds of apples on it with small wheels and not much ground clearance. The bike came to an immediate stop. With that right front wheel sticking out I made an awful mess of myself when it was spinning (thanks, no diff lock!). I ended up having to reach underwater, shoulder deep, and feel around to disconnect the trailer and drag it out of the puddle so I could back the bike out. On the plus side the bike did back out without much drama with the trailer disconnected
