1200 XLT water in all 3 cylinders
I have a 2001 XLT 1200 very low hours, was out today wife on 1200 and I was on my seadoo. rode for about three hours then on the way back the 1200 started acting funny and died. Towed it back home, pulled the plugs and a ton of water came out of all three cylinders.
Any ideas of what happened.......I just spent $1600 on new cables, starter and starter relay. This hurts....again!
thanks for any help

Well it is possible water was ingested through the intake. If not water must have came in through the head gasket or exhaust gasket. I am going to say it is more likely if you have been riding all day the water was ingested through the intake.
Make sure to crank that thing until all the water is out. Then take her out if possible and run her hard to get that water out of the motor. I would also have a look over the motor to make sure everything looks good.
If you find something loose take it back to the shop that did the work.

If they removed the exhaust system for any reason, most likely the manifold to U-pipe gasket failed. Thats the only way I can see how water would get into all three cylinders.
Is it possible they removed this to access the starter??

possible water got in there from towing and your shut down was another reason. crank the motor to gat all the water out and try and start it. run it for a bit and then get some wd-40 in there, must get all that water out of there before crank rusts and it is major work.

Bill is right.Towing filled it up,need to figure out why it died in the first place.
