entered the crankcase. Do not start the engine. Transport the vehicle to your dealer for
inspection and service. If the oil level is unchanged from the pre-ride inspection level,
replace the spark plug, start the engine and move the ATV promptly to a trailer or towing
If water isn't removed promptly from a submerged ATV, rust will form in precision components,
gears, bearings, the cylinder and other areas and result in serious engine damage. Always see your
dealer promptly after an ATV has been submerged.
