i was riding through the mud on my 05 rubicon i stopped in the middle of the mud hole and was idling and it stalled and i think it sucked some water up the exhaust how bad is that? can i change the oil and flush it out with some diesel to clean it out? i checked the oil and it doesn't seem to have any water in it. also there is some oil in the air box what could case that?

Whatever you do DO NOT flush the engine with Diesel. The tranny uses the engine oil also. It isnt bad at all. Pull you spark plug and drain you carb. Once the carb is drained tighten up the drain valve and prime it. Then drain it again and tighten the drain valve back up. Then turn the bike over a few times without the sparkplug in it and see if anything comes out of the spark plug hole. With what you described happend, this should fix your problem. But I would go ahead and do an oil change on it to be safe. Better safe than sorry and that bike can get expensive to fix. Let me know what happens.

Use neither, stick with the Honda GN4 oil. I would drain the carb just to be sure no trash is in there though.
