Default Re: My bike

Just make sure your magneto coil didn't get wet and don't start it if it did... You could remove it and let it sit out in the sun all day and it should be safe to run again.

Only other thing I could think that could go wrong is if you got a free flowing K&N type filter and it got water inside the intake, for this, just remove the spark plug and run it down the street a little to force any water out of the cylinder if there's any chance it got water in there to prevent hydro locking and bending the piston rod, but even then, it would take a good amount of water to do any damage there... after that, just run it til it fully warms up and any water or condensation in the case should evaporate out and the fuel/oil will re lube the bearings then you'll be good to go.
