Shogun - water seeping into the engine
Hi All, I have this very weird problem. Every time i send my bike for a water wash .. Somehow water seeps into the engine. This further causes the engine oil to become soapy white in color.

is this normal in all shoguns.. Need your advice on this.

Check the oil filler cap. thats the only place where water can seep in.

It certainly does NOT happen in my Shogun!

Do you mean it gets into the transmission oil? Yes, the oil filler cap would be the 1st suspect. If there was some other opening, you would probably find oil seeping out of there... so you could check for that too.

Water will enter the engine through the oil filler cap or the engine breather hole.

^ spot on dinar. get an O ring onto ur oil filler cap. change ur gearbox oil . check ur breather hole and connect a pipe to it.
