As the tittle says,a friend with a old stock SN had his fire ext. get loose and flopped around the engine bay till it got pierced.The chemical went everywhere and some (don’t know how much) was ingested by the engine.The engine got choked out and quit.He cleaned it all up and installed new plugs and continued to ride.Thinking it was all good he kept riding till it was time to come in.When he got it loaded on the trailer and tried starting it,nothing,would not start.New plugs installed and she fired right back up again.Took it out the next day,rode it and when he cut it off,it would not start.Again new plugs installed with the same scenario.

Anyone here have this happen?? Or any advise..

thanks

I'll buy it ;)

Haha like Harbor said though, I would probably pull it apart but im crazy OCD... That stuff for sure got sucked into the engine and im sure its not doing it any favors... or like Buzzard says flush it with water and treat it like a sunk ski

Just a head's up for anyone with a Square Nose:

1. The fire extinguisher does not go inside the engine compartment. It goes into the black canister attached by the rubber strap at the bow end of the tray which is outside the engine compartment. That is why it says "Fire Extinguisher" on the label on the outside of the engine compartment bulkhead.

2. The tool kit (and anything else you want to and can fit in there) goes into the yellow canister which is strapped to the inside of the hood in the engine compartment.

I could post up a diagram from the service or owner's manual if you would like. Or you can just trust me on this.

(I will outbid brrapperdoodle (although shipping cost could be a problem for me. . .)

Stop telling us the correct way to do things, logic will get you nowhere. LOL!
