    washed 1100 rt

    washed RT today.. then went to top off oil, noticed a little water buildup when i took filler plug off..

    there is a chance a little water got into the drain, plug.. when i say little, just maybe a eye drop .

    what do you think?

    Should be OK...sounds like as much moisture that naturally gets in due to condensation. A few good rides should heat up enough to get the water out of the engine.

    Obviously a complete tear-down is in order. Yes, I'm kidding! You'll be fine.

    Push it out to the curb

    What was the address again? Yeh it might be major problems with moisture in the oil so cut your loss.

    ONLY KIDDING!!!!!!

    Ride it a little and if it makes you nervous change the oil & filter and forget about a couple drops of H2O in there.

    Don't worry. Go ride it. Any water in the oil will boil off right quick once she's nice and warmed up.

    You washed it? Isn't that what rain is for?
