Here's a few videos of my buddies pond skimming with their quads. The water is around 6' deep on the short run and about 15 on the longer run.

No, I will not do this on my 700xx. :p

My other buddy, Nat (Nat actually downshifts on the longer 300' runs!):

That's the thing it doesn't seem to have ruined the KTM or the Raptor. Sure they've had to change their oil many, many times but they are still running strong. The guy that owns the KTM, Nat - his 15 year old son does it to on his Outlaw 525s.

They just:

Drain the water from the airbox.

Pull the plug, get the water out of the cyl.

Change the filter and oil. (repeat x6)

After that, no more water in the oil, smoking or weirdness.

They do it so often out there now that they have rules for it.

1. Wear a helmet.

2. Wear a life jacket.

3. No swimming.

That's the way youtube works, you start looking at one video...then another...then another...then another...."your wife called, says you're late for dinner"
Excactly! But we need some more 700xx exhaust videos!

On a side note. Looks like i'm headed up to RRMT this sunday.

i've skimmed a few long puddles.. never a river or lake though. i paid too much for my 700 to do that. with decent skid pans and some paddle tires the 700 would dominate that water though.
