well, i went riding saturday and it was not meant to be from the get go! My buddy that was riding with me dumped him and his gf off in the first hole that we came to. then not too long after that, i broke a front axle doing something that i knew was a bad idea. and to top it all off, i was riding water wheelies and my right rear fell off a drop off in the pond. needless to say, once we got it back on its wheels and on dry land i got pulled back to the trailer and had to load up. BAD AFTERNOON!!! now if anyone has any special tips for draining my bike please DO TELL!!!

dont crank it! drain all the oil and the carbs (unless its efi) and maek sure the airbox is goot and dry. pull the plugs make sure there's no water on top of the pistons. Pull the filter. Put in fresh oil & a new filter. start it, let it idle just long enough to circulate oil. like, 30 seconds - 1min. then drain it and do it again. make sure you take the filter off and let it drain out too. Put another new filter on once you have clean oil.

I made the mistake once of trying to spin mine over after flipping it in the sand pit at Mud Creek. Lets just call it a hard learned lesson. I ended up pulling the jugs and prying the rings off the pistons. They were jammed in the ring groves so tight I had to clamp the pistons in a wood vise and use a hammer and chisel to get them out. Against my friends advice, I cleaned everything back up, used the old rings and pistons, put it back together with just new gaskets. That was three years ago and still no smoke! I got lucky.

Happened to me a couple of times!! Go get some motor flush(auto zone) and drain the oil out ( leave old filter on) pour in motor flush let idle about 30 sec. and drain motor flush out replace filter and oil (should get it all the first time) the motor flush pushes the water out of the top side of engine . Alo dont forget front and rear diffs. I did one time cost about $275 to rebuild front diff.!! Good luck

I have to go lagrange to the popo shop to get a filter and some other stuff before i start. The last time i talked to D.P. he had four stock axles but that was last summer. I need to call him or go by there. And after i heard about the hunting club meeting i'm glad i went riding instead!!! thanks for all the help guys!

Engine fog works good too, we use it on outboards when the end up in the lake

(beer+ fishing+more beer = boat upsidedown, gear and motor in lake.)
