Damn-it, I need a snorkle/500HO

I buried my 2001 sportsman 500HO today and it stalled right away. I was riding a wheelie through the water like I do often but this time the quad started turning toward the deep end so I let the front end down to turn and found out it was too deep, 3 feet! My buddy pulled it out in about 3 minutes but lots of water got in. I pulled the plug to shoot out the water in the cylinder and drained the breather box and it didn't want to start for 10 minutes thanks to some gas directly in the breather tube. After about 5 oil changes in a row, the oil looks much better and I even changed the rear gear oil once which was also contanimated like a grey color...

Is there a snorkle kit available or is it going to have to be a custom thing? I guess the front and rear diff vents need to be extended... My gas cap has no vent in it, I wonder where it vents from.
thanks for any info.

The tank should vent into the steering column. Its a small line that runs from the top of the tank to the column
