    Towing fast?

    I searched but couldn't find a speed associated with an emergency tow. I bailed while jumping a huge wave from Hurricane Bill and when I tried to restart the battery was dead. I got a tow back to the ramp, but there was a point where we had to speed up to about 10mph to escape some of the waves. This speed was brief, maybe a minute or two. The rest of the trip back was just above idle speed. At what speed will you get water ingestion? I replaced the battery when I got home, took the pugs out and turned it over a couple times to check for water. None. I replaced the plugs and run it on the hose for about ten minutes. I then checked the plugs and they looked fine and were not milky looking. I'm just concerned that I could have got some water in the crankcase.

    What speed so you have to reach before water makes its way inside the cylinders? it's an '02 GP1200R.

    Just my opinion but if I thought I got water in the engine I would take it out right away and run it wide open throttle for a bit to clear it out.Dont let it set very long.I dont think you would get a lot of water towing it but if you sucked it up when you layed it down.Just my thoughts but take it back out and run the heck out of it.

    You're fine. I've been towed at >10mph before and nothing happened.
