Just wanted to share some info. I finally had a chance to take out my 08 450. I had a fun ride on some fast dirt roads and two track. I cannot even compare my DRZ to this bike, it is not in the same class. Anyways on the to the story, I got off on to a trail by accident and sunk my bike in a deep water hole. I got the engine off quickly got it home on my truck.
I dried every thing out. Took the airbox out, clean the plug, flushed the oil 3 times, dried and cleand the air filter. Everthing back to normal
. BRAPPP ON!
