Took my 2015 800 xmr out on saturday and got in a bit of a tight spot. The front never went deeper then the fenders but the rear dug out the sand n the rear racks were completly under water. I let off the throttle to engage 4x4 and go in reverse and she shut off. I was able to restart but it took a few seconds and giving it throttle. When i got out n back on dry land i shut her down and opened everything up. Air box, the drain tubes for the airbox and the drain for the cvt and everything was dry. Why did it shut down. I kno my suzuki used to do that when the muffler was underwater at idol, too much back preasure stalling the motor, but once i rejetted it it never did it again.. Is that wat happend here? I would think an 800cc v-twin fuel injected motor wouldnt be effected by the muffler being under water.... Anyone else have this issue. Not going to lie when she shut down my butt hole puckered up tighter then a snare drum hahaha

... the rear racks were completly under water
Under water...That's why I have a BOAT:yahoo:
But seriously, if the rear racks were COMPLETELY under water, I think that would mean that your battery under the seat, and all those electrical connections/fuses under there were UNDER water too??.

I 've seen these VIDs of guys driving their machines like a submarine or SEA DOO but I wouldn't recommend it.

This is y i bought a snorkled atv was to go deep lol. The fuse box under the seat was dry inside when i opened it that gasket seams to work well. Maby it was just a fluke. I was in rack deep water alot at mud fest 2 weeks ago and also again on saturday after the shutdown incident. Most of the time i come across deep water where we ride here in south fla. Cant really avoid it.

im thinking that's wat is the issue, the water creating too much backpreasure. now that I think of it b4 I rejetted my other bike it still did it until I gutted the spark arrestor.

It is due to the exhaust sitting under water. If you gave it a little throttle it would not have died since the exhaust would have escaped the bike easier.

I did the same thing. I have a 15 1000 XMR. Only had 4 hours on it. Crossed a sand bottom river. Headlight deep. Tires started digging and got stuck. Exhaust under water. Limp Home came on. Could not move. Never died on me. Had to run back to my truck, roughly a mile was all. Left the XMR running. I was able to drive to the river edge. Thankfully it was still running. Had to winch it out. I had water in my CVT and in the dirty air drain plug. Drained both, Limp Home went off. Both drains drained for about 20-30 seconds. Drives great now. Just the issue I have had so far. Kind of scary when the Limp Home comes on when you're stuck. Then you can't move at all.

I haven't had it out in water again yet. Wondering if I should take the primary cover off and check that out. Is there a gasket I should be worried about? Where can I find a diagram for the hoses and what plastics I should remove and how-to's? Will the Limp Home reset itself?

The gasket around your clutches is reusable the other stuff im not too sure.

On my 800 i had to remove the left side panel and the footwell to get to all the bolts for the cvt cover, there is torx bolts and smaller screws that attach the foot wells to the fenders. My front inner fender well covers had to come out also to full the plastic clips. pain in the ass. The cvt cover gasket is reusable just pull it out and wash it with soapy water. I dont kno if the 1k is the same as my 800 but i was able to check the hoses and clamps for the cvt intake and exhaust fairly easy with the side panel off. While ur in there check the belt and take an air hose and blow out the clutch. I whent ahead and whiped the shevs with acetone. When you put the cover back on do it by hand. The bolts have a coller that only let u tighten them so far. They thread into an incert on the inner cvt cover and if u put to much force on them like with an impact gun you will strip out the incert. As for the limp home mode that i dont kno. Have you tried disconecting the battery n doing a hard reset of the computer?

Thanks all!!! I will check everything out. Going to try and take it out this weekend. As for the Limp Home it does not show up when I start. The only time that it came on was when I was stuck. After I drained the dirty air hose and cvt drain it hasn't come on since. That's why I ask if it resets itself. Did notice though that the clock was way off. Maybe it shorted and reset.
