If the oil light doesn't come on, then I'd take it and fix it.

This would mean that oil pressure hasn't yet been affected. Water in the oil swells the paper in the oil filter and soon causes low oil flow. If the light hasn't been reported to have come on then it's a fairly safe bet.

I would doubt the water would've cause corrosion unless the bike has stood for years.

Say you'll take it, less a goodwill gesture and the cost of a repair kit and labor.

Thank you very much folks, great advice from all of you.

I'll make a breakdown of parts and costs need and make them an offer.

I'll let you know how it goes.

Regards,
Mario
