It's currently fine. I work at hobby and just came back from lunch.
Might be a little water right at the belt way but otherwise it's dry

most likey throw that bike away after that outing

if you get hub high, water can get into the bearings (if not sealed) and you'll frag your bearings, so just a bit lower would be the max i'd recommend.

I drove my CBR900RR in Allison and had water up to the headlights. As long as it was out of the intakes it was fine. Bearings were fine too after some maintenance.

That's what I would imagine. As long as the intake is above water and any exposed electrical, like maybe the battery?

Things like transmission vents don't matter then?

Almost all vents go into the airbox...unless you modified them.
