So as the title states, I flipped my outty in water decently deep (up to the headlights) got it flipped back took it to the trailer and started draining the oil. Drained it a few times including air box, went to start it fired right up but after a few seconds it died and now it doesn't want to start. New plugs are in, I got spark,fuel pump is good, but compression is an identical 35psi on both cylinders. Could it have pulled a valve out of place? Any and all suggestions welcomed. Thank you.

I would get another compression tester and just make sure they were both 35psi. Make sure you hold throttle wide open when you test it. If they are both 35, unfortunately you may have bent both rods. That's about the only reason I can think of that they would both be identical at 35 psi.

When I was a kid, I worked at a Honda/Kawasaki dealership. I was a parts guy, and it became clear that the real income for the shop was in selling parts. If you were to build a motorcycle from scratch, buying each part, the final cost was something like a 100x the cost of the showroom bike fully assembled and ready to ride.

With people treating their ATVs like boats or submarines, the parts gauging continues to be the money making path to the successful manufacturers and their dealerships. Can-Am and all its dealerships gives a warm and cheery thank you to the NewGuy570. We could not do this without you. :eek:

Would bent rods put stress on the starter? I'm getting a good 270rpm when turning it over

Just depends on if they are bent bad enough for the piston to be hitting the counterweights. You could bent a valve in both cylinders I guess, just seems unlikely. I would try doing a leak down test at this point.

Something tells me it hydrolocked and damaged the rings and maybe something else.

Don’t forget the brand new parts that designed to fail or wear out after few hundred miles. 🤬
