Hello all, is there anyone in the Marshalls Creek area that does service on ATV's? I drowned mine in a mud hole last week and want someone to do all the necessary work to get me back up and running.
I don't remember what kind of machine yours is but Pocono Motorsports is not far away from you.
I have not drowned mine yet but the procedure I have seen to get back up and running is first to drain the airbox out. Then pull the plug and crank it a few times to blow the water out of the cylinder(s). Then tip it up on end so the exhaust pipe is down to drain that out (if you drowned the whole thing) If you only did a head-dip, then you can skip that part. Then change the oil, fire it up for a few min then shut it down and change the oil again looking for water. Sometimes it will take up to four oil changes to get the water out of the system completely. SO I would use the cheapie oil at first until your sure its all out of the system.

I know the CVT is full of water. The air box did not seem that bad but there was a good amount of water in the exhaust.
For the do-it-yourselfer
A trick used instead of changing the oil a ton of times is to dispace the oil and water by filling the engine with diesel, just make sure there is no spark plug or ingition source.
