Re: Flood bikes
Depends on several factors:
1) how deep was the water and how long was it under water.
2) Is the water realatively clean or full of silt, mud, salt, etc.
Having dealt with snowmobiles going through the ice in clean water and under for less than a day the ycould typically be saved.
Cars in dirty silty flood waters typically have far more problems develope over time due to the silt and crap seeping into every crevis, electrical connector etc.
At minimum you are looking at pulling the oil pan, and heads to remove the wtaer and inspect for crud. Electrical components is a crap shoot.
