Electronic issues

I have an 06 foreman 500. I road it for about 3 hours through mud and shallow water and it was running fine. Went to load it on the truck and it cut off. I turned the key and nothing would come on. I put a battery? charger to it and everything came on but all the gauges we're going haywire. It would say I was going 27mph and it wouldn't even be running. When I start it doesn't want to go into gears easily (electric shift) the solenoid is getting power so I'm not sure if it's the angle sensor, voltage regulator, stator, or something else

sounds like you got water into some of the electrical connections, pull each electrical plug apart one at a time and use air compressor to clean and dry, put some dielectric grease on every connection.

I would suggest using electric contact cleaner to clean and dry connections over compressed air, air can just blow water into places it doesn't need to be and compressed air itself can contain moisture(water)
electronic contact cleaner will DRY and displace water in connections, and then you can dielectric grease the connections after it drys
