I've got an '07 WR450 and have had it 'drown' on me the last few times on water crossings. Tried keeping the revs up but always revs down and dies at the worst possible times. Water isn't very deep, only around or below peg level. Thought it was bad electrical connections and tried to recreate the situation at home while washing but can't get it to do it.

Help!!!

Crankcase vent tube or something similar?

tjl1,
You create a vacuum in the carb vent lines when you submerge all of them in water. See this link for a description of your symptoms and the solution http://www.thumperta...water crossings

Thanks for link. It makes sense now and I'll cancel my scuba gear order.
