Post EFI + WATER QUESTION
I have a Husky te 250 it is the first EFI bike in our shed.

I'm new to forum and have not been on a ride yet, I have put my name down for the girls ride.

I wanted to know what to do if you submerge a EFI bike in a creek?

Is it the same process as water logging a klx250 or 2 stroke?

My friend lost her klx250 to a creek yesterday, made me think.

I didn't know what to do if that happens to me. Can anyone help me out?

Cheers
Leanne.

If you drown your EFI husky in a creek or as such, You dont need to do as much as a carby bike or 2 stroke. The fuel system is all water tight, All you should have to do is carry a spare oiled air filter (In a large sandwich bag) and a spare spark plug. If you drop the bike in water, stop it ASAP if it already hasnt. Remove the spark plug and air filter. Lift the bike up on its back wheel (Front wheel pointing to the srtatosphere) and you can cheat by using your electric start button to turn the engine over and push out any water that may have entered the engine and exhaust. Make sure its all pretty dry looking in there, and put in new plug and filter. Bike should start then. give it a good warm up, and check the engine oil to see if it hasnt gone milky. If its like milk,you have water in you engine sump.

Its rare to have any oil that may have entered the sump, Usually the motor stops or the rider has stopped it in time, and has it up on its feet to keep everything out from the water. If you do have a bit of water in there, You will have to do and oil change icon_scratch . You will have a lot of steam comming from exhaust once you get the bike running again. Give it a good run to dry out everything inside. icon_thumright
