    water leaking in cyl

    '97 Pro, 1st ride today, wouldn't get going, found #1 cyl wasn't firing. Pulled the plug, cranked it, just "misted" water out. WTH

    Was it stored in a heated area during the winter, or allowed to get cold?

    When it was winterized were the triple exhaust pipes drained or filled with antifreeze?

    Don't think it was in a garage. Was told it was winterized by a shop. Don't know what they did or didn't do.

    So this machine is new to you?

    Sounds like you have some work to do. Start by looking through my signature links.

    I suggest you go through the basics, since we cannot assume it was properly winterized or even properly maintained or serviced.

    If you can, run it on the trailer for 20 seconds at a time to get the water out of the engine interior. Do this ASAP. You do not want the engine bearings to start rusting.

    Once you have dried it out, Check cylinder compression.

    Until you get it fixed, I suggest you fog the engine with fogging oil to protect the internals from rusting.

    change the plug and see how it runs in the water on the trailer for acouple of minutes and the pull the plug again and see if it's ok if it is then take it for alittle test ride and if all goes well then keep riding ,but i would fire it up now to get the rest of the water out of it .

    Pulled all the plugs, many times while I was out. Sure they got mixed around. Pulled the head, that cyl looked brand new (other 2 had the carbon burns). Just continued to leak water in it. Its home now.
