Maybe the seal walked out a bit at one time and the PO tapped it back in?

Here is a couple beam shots of questionable quality. The first is a 100w Halogen in a Piaa 520 series housing and wide angle lens. The second shot is with the HID in a PIAA 520 pencil beam lens. Its hard to tell distance, but signs are visible well over a mile away.

I'm not one to take many risks with anything above 12-14" flowing water, but the carb T-mod is a good time investment to prevent you from stalling.

Otherwise you should be ok. You should check the air box after crossing to confirm water didn't penetrate the filter.

dont know how deep it will be depends on how much rain we get. I dont think it will be moving water more just flooded areas, damn beavers... :)

Looks like your buddy found the deep end

Just goes to show, a fully farkled BMW can't swim. When he first fell I thought the bike would be ok but the second fall was a full submergance. How long did it take to get it running again?
