GP1300R`05-Water in Cyliner-

My ski got water in the Cylinders, I took out the plugs & the water shoots of of the x3 cylinders when I try to start-How can I "drain" the water out of the cylinders" or can the water be flushed out?

What i've seen people do is tilt the jetskie sideways on land, remove the spark plugs and crank the engine to remove the water as already suggested.... a mod to that technique that i've seen is putting the finger on the spark plug hole and leaving a small space for the water to come out, that applies pressure on the compartment and forces the air+water out of the piston at a higher rate.... The process is done to each piston ...

The only problem with cranking the engine with out the spark plugs is that you gotta have a fully charged battery, because you can really end up draining your battery..
As already suggested, do it as soon as possible, preferably right after the jetskie flips, or as soon as you find out... that is to prevent any engine damages ..
