Welcome to the forums...Free downloadable manuals in the Schematics/Manual help section on the Technical discussions board...Usually after a couple hundred bux in new oil,and filters most all of the water is gone if you do it properly...Motor,and tranny use the same oil,and filter... Remove the plug,air filter,airbox lid,stand atv up on rear wheels until no more water drips...Set it down,pull starter rope with ignition turned off until you see nada come out of the cylinder but air....Drain oil,remove oil filter,allow to drain for several hours(1st drain needs a couple hours to allow water to make its way out,you can pull the starter rope a few times while drain plugs out)..refill with new oil,and new filter,run engine for 5 minutes,drain oil,remove filter,allow to drain for at least an hour,refill with all new oil,new filter,keep doing this again,and again until you get only clear oil with zero signs of water when you drain it into a clean drain pan,and no droplets of water on the dipstick...Run it,ride it for a couple of hours avoiding water,drain oil,inspect the oil for any signs of water,if none,then you're good to go after you refill the engine///Don't just change the oil 2x,and think that you're good to go as there is still heavy moisture trapped down inside the crankshaft,and rod bearings that you have to get out asap if you want your engine to last...
