    Fuel spitting back thru carb

    Hi, I'm new to the PCW world. I bought a 1999 SLX 1050. Ran great till I sunk it & got the motor right full out water. Got the plugs out & spinning it over I noticed middle cylinder was having most trouble getting water out. I could see water getting back in at bottom of throat of carb by looking down it. The ski is running but not on middle cylinder,this plug is cold. What we notice is it is spitting fuel back out the middle cylinder carb. Could I have damaged the reeds, or what do you guys think.
    Thanks
    Darren

    no it's pretty simple just pull the carbs and then the intake and your right there . just make sure you tag all your fuel hoses and oil lines . very easy job to do and theres a ton of guys on here to help walk you through it .

    You may want to shoot some fogging oil in the middle cylinder to keep and rust from forming on the bearings while you tear it down. It might be a good idea to fog all three as it sounds like it did not run long after you got the water out.. Rusted crank is spendy...

    Thanks for the replays. I did run it for quit awhile trying to diagnose so rust is not a worry. It was 1 pedal totally gone.They are plastisc looking so I hope the pedal wont hurt anything.
