Running rough

First ride today on my 2010!! Awesome..but after I ripped through some large mud and water holes the bike stalled...started and stalled several times.. .ran rough for a few minutes so I let it idle and then off we went...what could have gone wrong?

Maybe a loose spark plug cap allowed water to ground out ignition & engine heat dried out the water?

Maybe the underside of your air filter box is Melted Open from exhaust gasket failure & it sucked water into carb & has been breathing unfiltered/dusty air?
