My KLR wont swim
Yea thats right my KLR wouldnt swim instead it laid down. I was having a great day riding some trails that had very recently been covered in snow. Some still were, deep too but thats a different story. I came across a friggin lake covering the road, I figured how deep could it be? I can do it, well at least halfway anyway when I hit an underwater obstruction and we went down. Quickly standing back up and uprighting the bike, thats about when I realized the water now filling my boots was pretty dang cold. I rolled her out of the lake. I opened the airbox and removed water, dried the filter, opened the drain for the inner and outer airbox. Tried and tried to start her with no luck. Decided I better start pushing, so I pushed a mile or so with pauses to try again to start her, wasnt happening. Finally with choke on she would start but wouldnt rev, and wouldnt run without the choke. I let her sit there at idle for awhile, before she would finally run. I checked the sight glass and all looked good, so onward I went. When I got home I noticed the sight glass was white, so I drained the oil. Didnt look like any water in oil. Sight glass still white. So what else should I do to make sure I dont have muddy water anywhere it doesnt belong? I cleaned and lubed the chain and lubed cables as well.
You start with a full bag of luck and an empty bag of experience. Hopefully you fill the bag of experience before you empty the bag of luck.
