I drained the carb already. My oil was a little milky and i had quite a bit of water in the air box. should i just drain all the gas? I'm changing my oil anyway.

how deep did you go? deep enough to put ur gas cap underwater?
if ur oil is a little milky u need to change it for sure, also the oil filter. use some marvel mystery fluid when u do, about 1/3 of a bottle. pour it into ur oil. then drain it again. that should take care of ur oil.
could be hydrolocked, i dunno.

you can get it at wal-mart or any other autoparts store. its called marvel mystery fluid. it comes in a red bottle. if you just drain your oil then put new oil in more than likely ur new oil will still be milked once you turn your engine on b/c there will still be a little water in there. all it takes is about a tablespoon of water to milk 2.5 quarts of oil.
drain ur milked out. put new cheap oil in along with 1/3 a bottle of mystery fluid. run the engine for a few min. drain again. (might want to do that twice) then put ur good synthetic oil in again along with a new oil filter. run the engine again and check ur oil. it should be fine. for some reason that mystery fluid sticks to water and pulls it out of ur engine. i've read on here where some guys change their oil 10 times before its not milked anymore. its b/c they are not using the mystery fuild.

Can't work on my bike until next monday. Would it be alright to wait that long to drain the oil?

its a honda...just change the oil and use that stuff...and if you wanna be extra safe....after your first oil change...run it up and down the street and then change it again.... you probally got water in the air box high enough and it went down into your crank case vent that also runs to your airbox

selah86. bet me to it u will b ok if u follow hes steps he told u. and good luck
i dont understand what this means? lol are u saying it will work if he follows my steps?

also, yes he prolly filled his airbox with water. all it takes is about 2 inches of water in the airbox to get into the crankcase vent and thats how he milked his oil. but it happens A LOT to people who ride deep and are not snorkeled. you will be just fine. as long as you are not hydrolocked and from what you have told us i really doubt that you are.

btw, give the marvel mystery fluid a smell. its very pepperminty smelling. lol

Buddy of mine works for honda. The bike won't rev up. It just dies. You can here a hard thunk when you do try to rev it once and a while.

Usually the connecting rod will bend or break before the crank will. Are you sure you don't have water in the gas tank.
