They dont. :thumbsup:

You need to reroute the breather pipes to the airbox,thats what i did when mine stalled in the middle of Bakewell ford and it's been great since....through water much deeper without a problem.

Chipben is correct. Just to clarify, the hose(s) you want to reroute is/are the ones that vent the float bowl. When you ride in water that submerges them the carb can't pull any gas in and you stall. In actuality the two hoses are a bit redundant, you only need one above water to vent the bowl. Some people like the airbox, others just reroute it under the gas tank: free easy fix.
