Default Flooded Bike.

By bike was flooded due to Hurricane sandy. It was totally submerged under water for a couple of days. Does anyone know how hard it would be to repair a bike that has been involved in flooding? It is a 2009 model with around 2500 miles on it.

It has been converted to a track bike and unfortunately I did not carry insurance.

I would assume that water would be in most of the engine as salt water would cause more severe damage. Probably quite the project to repair.

I would start with making sure the electrical system was good... ck the fuses & replace the batt. Then if the water was up above the exhaust I would pull the head & make sure there is no water in the cylinders. change the oil & gas, clean the air box/replace filter. I would think as long as your electrical is still go you should run. I would also clean & lube all the electrical conecters, front & rear axles, swing arm pivot, and chain (replace if bad). Replace brake pads & I dont think you would have to but better safe then sorry bleed your brakes. Just do a real good once on it.

Unhappy

Thanks guys.

I think it will be a big project as well. But since I do not have any insurance, I want to try it rather than losing the bike.

That sucks to hear man. Hope you are doing well with your recovery of everything else as well as your bike.

Good luck with the rebuild.
