    Rough Idle on start up.

    1999 SLX 1050 I filled the engine compart last week with water. Now when it starts it it idles low and rough @ around 900 & makes a squealing sound for 15-29 sec, then the noise stops and idle smooths out back up to 1200rpm. What do you fellows think is happening?
    Thanks

    Is the sound coming from the pump area?
    Split the electrical box and inspect the back of the terminal board.

    Thanks I did empty the water out of the electrical box & took it apart & cleaned it up. The noise seems to be coming the from the front of the engine by the oil pump area.

    Pull the stator cover and check for water.

    Worst case scenario, you move the tank forward. You'll find once you remove the oil pump you have much more room to get at the stator cover hardware.
    It could be the water displaced the grease/oil at the bendix. It may be shorting the stator etc. I'd certainly take a peak.
    Have a vid with the noise?

    I have taken my stator cover off There was a little water just an ounce or two.Water droplets come out of starter gear when spinning it over. What should I look for & how would I go about lubricating the starter up.
