Thumbs down Unicorn drowned in Rain Flood in Mumbai on 4/7

Hi Guys,

Unlucky me - my unicorn was under 4 feet of water n yesterdays rains in Mumbai 4-jul. It got submerged till the base of the tank for around 5-6 hours.

I have some idea like not to use the electric start etc. Any other tips or advice on how I should go about starting the bike ??

Dude dont even think about starting the bike.There would be water inside the cylinder which would have leaved through the exhaust pipe and the air filter.Starting will cause a hydraulic lock in the cylinder and engine
will suffer severe damage
Get the bike to a honda dealer.He will open the entire engine and remove all the water and clean the parts as required.Change the engine oil and gearbox oil and there your bike is good as new.REMEMBER NEVER START A BIKE OR CAR WHOSE ENGINE IS FLOODED WITH WATER
