I never raise in rain. I live in the desert average rainfall here is 5.5" a YEAR.If you ride in rain it might be good to keep the snorkel in. I had a air cooled 900 series ( 2012) and removed the snorkel but used plastic tabs provided by Norman Hyde Bellmouth to keep water out. My '22 Scrambler has been desnorkeled by cutting the snorkel in 1/2 at an angle. Photos of that mod are in "Triumph Hacks". I do NOT ride in the rain however and have additional marine type air scoops to really ram the air in.
Even with rain, they make covers for those filters.That took patience. What takes 5 minute for a Harley, took 45 mins. What an asinine design.
K&N filter in and snorkle removed. Wont need to mess with that for a while.
