So I'm miles from anywhere this morning, alone. The stream didn't look that deep from the bank. Wrong. I totally drowned my 600R. I pulled the air cover off and about a gallon of water came out. I wrung-out the air filter and let it dry in the sun a little. I tryed cranking it over and at first hit some real resistance. I had to give it an almight kick to get it to move at all. Nothing. I tryed for half and hour but nothing. I might be paranoid but I dont seem to be getting a much resistance from the kicker (after the intitial one). It just doesn't seem to find that 'spot' where you know this is the one. Any advice. I figure I'm going to pull the carb. remove the valve covers, drain the oil, remove the plug. Is there anything else I should be doing? Is it possible that I've blown the head gasket or done some other serious engine damage?? Would I be better dropping it off at the local dealer? Please help!! Craig P.S. After a 7 1/2 mile hike in my Thor's I was rescued by my father-in-law and his truck. In total my 2 hour ride turned into a 9 1/2 hour epic. There's a moral to this story somewhere.
