1996 Kawasaki 1100 Zxi problems

Hello all!

I wish my first post here weren't a cry for help. I bought it used and am learning hard lessons. We had it on the lake and ran it for about 3 hours then tied it up in about three feet of water. After an hour or so we noticed it was taking on water. We lost the drain plug. I beached it and ran into town for a new plug. By the time I got back, they had a temporary rubber plug in place and had pumped the water out of the hull. I put the new drain plug in and tried to start it. It just makes a clunk sound. It won't even turn over. I pulled out the spark plugs and they were all wet, no gas smell on them. I left them out for a few hours hoping things would dry out. No luck. I tried to manually turn the drive shaft and cannot get it to rotate. I'd appreciate any thoughts or help.

I think they tried to start it prior to pumping out the water....


THANKS !

Hey,
