If you had to start the bike with the lower end under water definitely change your oil. It is possible to suck water into the crankcase breather hose when starting. I had an hourglassed oil filter, filled with dirt and small debris from sucking in some swamp water after stalling and restarting. The oil was milky as well but luckily it never caused a long term problem with the engine.
As far as cutting out when wet, also check your kill switch and wiring to make sure its not grounding against the bars, frame or any other metal the wiring could come in contact with.
