i sucked some water in my quad too. i was by myself about a mile from my truck and in the middle of a creek. i had to cross this creek to get back and it was about a 3 foot drop into it. so im like what the hell and just nailed it. i hit the water, drove about 4 feet and died. i had to get off and push it to some shallower water and let it sit for a while where it then started luckily. the exhaust was super loud from having water in it though, but not bad.
Well the big problem is the computer. They usually have splash guards but those only cover half of the pcm. They are usually located on the passenger side firewall or in behind the glove compartment on american made trucks.
I think the closest I ever got to being that deep would be crossing a stream in the winter, hey the water level only went up a little bit. I was going pretty slow, didn't want to splash the 'puter crap and kill it. The water level was right up past my headlights...that one was a little wet. Glad my stero amp doesn't sit under the seat.
