    Pull your plugs and roll the engine over like you are trying to start it. If no water comes out go to church next sunday........ twice.
    If not replace plugs and enjoy. if you get water follow instructions as if you sunk the ski.

    Pull the spark plugs and make sure there isn't any water in the cylinders. If so, while the spark plugs are out, hold the throttle wide open and crank the motor. It will get most the water out. Then check your oil for a milky color. If everything checks out good, put the plugs in and start it. Use anti seize on the plugs and do not over tighten them.

    because of the unique exhaust manifold you have been saved i very much doubt you have any water in the engine. personally i would bump the starter but i know what im doing if you arent sure do as above.

    3-5 mins?! yikes i dont see how the cylinder couldnt have got water in it..... http://www.kawasaki-techinfo.net/sho...8&lang_code=EN

    scroll down to page 109 and start from there. main thing is dont try and turn it over till the plugs are out. from there its just the amount of mess needing to be cleaned up. may take quite a few oil changes if the water made it that far but its not the end of the world, lets just say i know a guy who filled his whole crankcase up with water before....

    If you do have water in the oil then tick tock time is not on your side.
    If there is water change oil and filter ASAP and get her running.
    Take it to the water and back the trailer in and let her idle on the trailer for 20-30 min.
    If its day light then ride it for 20-30 min without shutting it off.
    You need to cook any remaining moisture out.
    Just changing oil isn't going to get all the moisture out.
    Running it for 20-30 min will.

    Tick tock....

    It's likely water would come out of the exhaust first. Did you see water pouring out of the exhaust outlet?

    Either way, just to be safe, I agree with everyone else, take the plugs out and hit the starter for a second and see what happens. Use a torque wrench when putting the plugs back in. Double check the settings on the wrench, the torque is very little.

    Good luck.

    Thanks guys, yes I did have water running out of exhaust.

    Don't ever hit the starter with the plugs in, run starter for short bursts so as not to overheat if there is water in cylinders. If there's water in oil, run it for 10-15 mins then change it, run it again and check for milkyness keep running and changing until its clear.

    since when does water run uphill? all you guys need to have a look at the heights of the exhaust manifolds in relation to the outlet pipe, just say'n
