Hey guys I rode my brand new 2011 wr450 with all the free mods, except ASI removal today and had to cross a few streams. They were approx 1-2 feet deep. On 3 of the 4 crossings the bike sputtered, choked whatever you want to call it, but ran fine after getting through the water. On the last crossing the bike made it to the other side thank god but died. The electric starter would not even turn and the kicker wouldent start the bike. After 5-10 mins the electric starter would turn but not start the bike, had to kick it and it started. I did search and found some posts regarding re routing carb hoses??what would cause the starter to not fire for a few mins? Thanks guys
