Yeah with it submerged that could of put the water in your oil. Change your oil. Run it at least 500+ miles and check the status of the oil.

But i would also inspect for blown head gasket and/or cracked block/head. Could be because engine was really hot and the water was really cold and the temperature shock (thats a long shot) but i would still put it out there.

Is there any coolant missing? If reservoir is full, then it's just contaminated from driving in deep water.

**IF** it was driven in deep water, there's water in the wheel bearings, in the chain o-rings, and electronics (like kstand switch). It's NEVER worth it.

I still don't understand why you didn't follow me. What's worse is when I look up and see you turned around and headed in the opposite direction.

Unfortunately no. I've been thinking of getting a GoPro for a while but not sure if I'd use it much. Twice now I wish I would have had one

It may not be as bad as you think. We would submerge our 4 wheeler all the time (not on purpose but you can't not take a double dog dare). We would pull the plugs to make sure there is not water in the motor (you can break all kind of stuff trying to start it with water in the jug). But get ready to change the oil a bunch of times. Get some cheap wal mart oil (and lots of it). Change the oil. Run it some. Change the oil. Run it some. Change the oil. Repeat until the oil does not come out milky.
