Unless a special tool is needed I would try doing it on your own and do it all the same day so its easier to remember where everything goes. take pictures.

Im pretty handy and have decent set of tool.

I purchased a 05 kawasaki z750s that was flooded during Harvey. The motor seem to be seized from sitting after storm. So far tried Marvel Mystery Oil, no luck so far, so debating on finding used z750s or z1000 to put in the bike.

I think this motorcycle is worth saving all electronic is in working other than a sezied motor?

I'd be worried about corrosion with the electrical.

Part it out, then use money to buy a non-flooded vehicle.

You will not get your money back out of that after all the work involved with a swap.

Put the rear on a stand and shift it into first. Rotate the rear wheel front and back till it frees. Thatís the strongest option. If it frees, good. If not, you are not out anything.

, you donít even need a stand. Put it in first, get on it and rock it back and forth.

These take me about 5 hours by myself out and in. I'd probably say about the same at a dealer ship. 5hr x $90 at a shop.

I bet you didn't empty out the exhaust pipes did you...
You can thank me later.
I scored a 2014 gsxr 750 for $500 and a tl1000r for $350 because of water in the exhaust. both bikes were running within 2 hours.

If you are going to try and work on it your self. First, get a repair manual. Go to trade bit. there about $20.00 then go into the manual and see what the manufacturer calls it. You have to have a manual to be able to work on any thing. without it, you're guessing. and that's gets $$$$$$Get one good luck

Its not just water any more. More like sludge.

It can be alittle deceiving. Its not that the motornis locked up... bit the exhaust gases are cant push rhe water out so the motor work turn over
