What to do to your bike if it gets submerged?

Recommended Posts

I just watched this kid go for a swim and they said the got the bike running the next day. Enginewise what do you need to do to get it ready to run again? On a 4 stroke to you need to pull the head etc?

In my two stroke days I just pulled the plug, drained the water out of the exhaust, change the oil and start it up. Its a little simplified but that is the basics. The same for a four stroke. I would pull the motor apart if it looked like sand or some other foreign meterial had gotten in through the vents or carb. If it was just clean water I would flush out the water and change the oil numerous times untill it was clean.
