It doesn't start after you hydrolock the bike. I know from personal experience..........

I had a boat go down in a lake

1st flushed it with clean water

then 3 times with kerosene until what came out looked like what went in. cranked it with the plugs out. ALOT

Lost only an aftermarket ignition module so used the old points

Swear to God it ran better afterward better than ever

Now cleaning the crankcase oil out of the interior and carpet was the fun
Like a gallon of Dawn and a pressure washer.
