Sunk KX450F

Recommended Posts

I was riding out in Phoenix and came to a river that we rode across to continue riding, on the way back ended up dumping it right before the shore in about a 12 inches of water. The oil was milky so i towed it back to the truck and flushed the oil 3 times, changed the oil filter and kicked it over a few times to move the oil through out the motor. Going to get a new spark plug tomorrow and drained the carb bowl. Is there anything else i should check before riding it. Thanks

Air filter. But I guess you changed that. Plug probably OK if clean. Wiring plugs could be disconnected and dried and WD40 sprayed. Possible water in the fuel tank.

Did the engine suck in water while running or did you stop it before the air filter went under? I yes, then possible major damage. Hope your crank, piston, rod, and valves are OK.
