I have a 1992 ELXi which I have purchased to offroad. The engine is sound and I plan to fit a K&N for that little extra on the tough slopes. However I wanged it though a river crossing the other day, not too deep, more like a large puddle and got an undesired effect.
The engine lost a little power and seemed to blow a little (new exhaust so not that), after 5 mins problem stopped and all was well. I conclude that water has gotten to somewhere, I wonder if anyone may have an idea as to what might be happening, I plan on doing a little wading.
