Other than that, it doesn't mind water at all. Last weekend when I was riding the trails up north, I was crossing a flooded part of the trail. I ended up in a rut on the left side of the trail, where the left side of my bike was under water (over the tires by about 8 inches. She never stoped running. I shut it down, because I was in sand, and that seems to eat quads alive up there. My friend on his Raptor tried to go just to the right of me, and hit a hole that put his front end in almost to the handlebars. He too shut it down to make sure he didn't pull any water into the motor. After 30 minutes, we got his out. I lifted my rear end up and onto the higher side, and she started right up and drove out.
