    Default Carb Breather Hoses

    Do the breather hoses on the carb need to be a certain length to still vent but avoid and dust & cr@p finding its way up them and into the carb?

    Yes, and remember to split the ends!

    People think when the ends are split they are not supposed to be like that. But they are to allow the dirt to flick out and not block the ends!

    Cutting them at 45degrees also increases the size of the aperture to resist clogging
