Thread: Help Quick!

    Help Quick!

    I drowned my 03 GPR this afternoon in some wicked surf. flipped backwards, seat came off and almost sank the dang thing. I am in the garage wrenching right now... plugs are out and trying to blow all of the water out of it by turning it over. I have dumped some yamalube in all three cylinders and soaked everything down with WD-40. what is next?

    Get all the water out and then run it on the hose ASAP! Then tomorrow go run the shit out of it to get the rest of the water out.


    Most important thing is to get it to run. Run it on the hose for a bit then go to the lake and ride it hard.

    I would run it now. Last time I got water in my motor I pumped out all the water. Put some wd-40 in and started it. I would have rather used fogging oil but I didn't have any on me.

    I then ran it on the hose for a long time since the ski had a leak. You are running it on the hose to get to temp to get some of that water out. That should be ok for the night, then tomorrow run it hard. Then you should be ok

    get as much water out as you can and then run it TONIGHT

    by running it you will dry it out

    if you leave it till tomorrow the bearings on the crank will be rusted by then

    Not a good idea to put WD40 in the cylinders,it will wash the oil off all parts it comes in contact with.
