I had my 98 1100 zxi almost sink last year, everything was completely submerged. I removed the spark plugs and tuned the engine over to get three large geysers of water out of the holes. we wound up removing the carbs completely, lifting the front end with a fork lift till it was completely verticle. That allowed the water to drain out that was trapped behind the reeds. The Ignition box also got soaked so we dried it all out, re-assembled lubed the cylinders, new spark plugs, shot some starter fluid in and it started right up hope that helps some.
