So I was at the Atv Park about a month ago and I was going through a waterhole it was way deeper than I thought. I ended up getting stuck in some sand at the bottom , the four wheeler never died it stayed running, but when I pulled it out it was obvious I had water in my belt case.? I drain the water out and I was checking the front to see if I had water in my tubes behind plastic on left front fender well. There is oil in the dirty tube, is this caused by being submerged in the water with the motor running they didn’t have the correct vacuum and sucked up oil or something? Or is it a drivetrain oil? I’ve taken apart all panels and washed, anything else I should check?

It's usually caused by having the bike on it's side. Usually the left hand side down, as the engine breather tube is on the left side of the engine..
