Well it all started out great. My buddy and I rode about 17 miles into the back country and besides moving fallen trees off the trail, it was going great. Then we came to a creek that we had crossed in the past but this year it was flowing a little higher than usual. It was still only 2 1/2 feet at the deepest point but with the current we couldn't see the rocks very well. Long story short, apparently I hit a "boulder" and down I went. I picked the bike up as soon as I could but the damage was already done. We did all the usual....removed spark plug and cranked it over a few times....drained the float bowl...drained the exhaust...and removed the saturated air filter. It took a couple tries but she fired right back up. Unfortunately I didn't have much of a choice but to ride out with a milk shake for oil.
I've done the thread search and found where this has been talked about quited a bit. I know to change the oil with the cheapest I can find about 5 times or until its cleaned up but my question is do I have to change the filter every time? I'd really like to get it taken care of today but since I don't have any spare filters and all the shops are closed on Sunday I kinda screwed on that. What do you think?
