I was riding some trails yesterday, and there was this part that went through a creek. I knew about the whole breather tube thing, so I kept it revved as I was going through, but even then, the water was still very high. I didnt get any in the airbox and it ran fine with no loss of power for another 15 miles before I packed up and went home. The only thing I am worried about is that there is a little spot of oil at the small opening on the RIGHT side of the cylinder. You know, the tiny little hole that is about 3 inches from the top of the motor. It is just a spot and nothing more, but I have never seen oil there before and so I am worried. Should I be?

Are you talking about the spark plug drain hole? I always seem to get a little in there when cheking the valves. If you got water in the top side, that oil could ooze out after the water was gone...
