    Water in cylinders

    Quick question, after riding my 1200r all weekend I noticed a rather large crack in the exhaust manifold. Only reason I saw it was because water was spraying everywhere when I was flushing it out. After coming home and looking into it more I realized that the cylinders were full of water!! First time thats ever happened. And yes I disconnect the hose before shutting the engine down. So my question is, would this crack cause the water to seep back into the cylinders?

    yes it could

    most of the cracked manis I have seen cause more internal leaks than external

    When I took the plugs out it looked like 3 of yellowstone's old reliables. Water was shooting out and this is the only time it has ever done that so I am assuming that a new manifold should do the trick.
