oops Engine Noise

After a long day of riding and a little mud running, my engine is making a pecking noise. I also forgot to re install my air box lid. Im thinking i sucked water and mud down into the engine. My question is has anyone else done this or experienced this noise and tear into the engine? Im thinking my piston is shot, but was wondering what everyone else thinks...thanks for any help.

maybe its just your valves, check your dipstick for water in oil, what does the air filter look like?pull it off and see if any sand is in intake boot and wipe out carefully!

I just cleaned the whole thing yesterday and the air filter was covered in mud and i could see where mud/water went into the intake...i just had my valves adjusted and it got rid of the "rattle" but the peck is still there and getting worse...i wont ride it until i get it fixed just in case...which sucks because the snow is coming, and we all know its fun to play in the snow...haha

Did you chk the oil yet, like tbird88 suggested? If you see water in it flush it out with some cheap oil a time or two, and then when clear add good quality oil.

I would also look closely at your filter for sand and metal flakes. If you did get sand in the intake and into the cylinder it may be scoring the piston. check your compression as well. If there is sand in the oil filter it could possibly clog oil passages or just as bad scar up the rotating surfaces and ruin the motor. Don't mean to scare just something to look for.

Its amazing how far a KFX 90 will fly if you go fast. 15' is her current record.
