Default Got some water in my tailpipe...

Woke up to this today...

My street never floods but it decided to today. Had a lot of water and some small twigs and other debris go up the left tailpipe.

After the water went down I went out and the bike started right up. A bunch of water came shooting out. Let it run for about 5 minutes and seems like most of it is out now.

Anything I should do to make sure there's no internal damage?

Did you just let it idle for a few minutes on start up?

I did. Ran for about 5 minutes on idle before I gave it any throttle. When a did give it some gas a bunch more water sprayed out.

You're ok, When my kids were young they would hydro-lock my ATC in the pond, I would pull the spark plug and pull the recoil starter to pump out the water and all is well.. Being your bike was not running at the time don't worry...

At worst harden up the fiberglass inside making it less able to absorb sound. Just make sure to run it long enough to burn out as much extra moisture and find something to stuff the exhaust to help block out new moisture from the air from living in such a humid environment.

I would change the oil. Just in case any water got in. I would also unplug and spray wd40 in any electrical connections that were the under water

WOW!!!! That's some rain storm!! That's one of the reasons I live at the top of a hill. Plus, just in case the bike doesn't start it's easier to push start.
