dumped in the water


Recommended Posts

Dumped the zed in the lake. Would not start.

Dried air filter.

Took out spark plug, turned it over a bit to clear any water if it was in the cylinder.

Unscrewed a plug in the side of the carb, water came gushing out.

Replace spark plug, remounted tank, put fuel petcock on prime, ran some gas out the carb plug.

Tightened carb plug.

Bike fired right up.

Fun fun fun.

I submersed mine trying to cross a giant mud bog. The mud was pretty damn soft in the middle!
