    Step one, buy a manual

    Step two, pull the spark plugs and crank the engine over until the water stops shooting out. Let sit for a few minutes then do it again.

    Step 3 remove plug under the throttle body and drain intake.

    Step 4 fog cylinders with fogging oil.

    Step 5 drain oil, change filter, refill oil.

    Step 6 crank engine over again to get any remaining water out.

    Step 7 reinstall spark plugs and intake manifold plug, use antiseize on the spark plug threads.

    Step 8 try and start.

    Step 9 change the oil again until no more milkshake comes out.

    Step 10 if ridden in salt fog the engine with fogging oil before storing it.

    The clock is ticking... You only have a few hours to dry this out before MAJOR DAMAGE IS DONE TO YOUR ENGINE.

    Tomorrow is TOO LATE! Unless you're having a baby or something, getting the water out of your engine (AND electronics) is your number one priority!

    Use a hair dryer to get water out of the electrical stuff.

    If you can't get it to start, you still need to get any water out of the cylinders and crankcase.

    TICK, TICK, TICK, TICK...

    Oh, yea, when you do get it running you can plan on opening up the stator and cleaning it out, as well as repairing/replacing the starter.

    Yes please share. Rivers are usually calm and those seats normally don't pop off
