I have a polaris 750 ??94/95 which was working perfectly until i capsized it. The problem is that the cover preventing water fron entering into the engine was not attached at the time . This resulted in the entire engine plus exhaust etc been totally flooded. At that time i didnt realise the cover was off and i tried starting the engine!It swung just a little bit.
I then striped the engine and drained out all the water and replaced the spark plugs. Its now swinging much better but not starting(running) its seems it needs that last kick before it starts.
please help as i would love to get it back on the water soon.

Do a search for "Hydrolock" and "Crank index"
If you got water into the cylinder, you probably hosed your crank. (read, cylinder timing) If you get it running without checking, you will most likely destroy at least one piston.
Also clean the carbs. you might have gotten water or other filth in them when you rolled it
Whenever you get water in your engine, you have to remember to take the plugs out before cranking so the water has somewhere to go.

Welcome to the Hulk.
It would be wise to do a crank index like mentioned above.
Do you have a strong spark? Maybe water got inside the elec box as well.
