WOW 14 not the same under water

I just tried to ride my bike under water for the first time...way down on power...WOT easy in all gears (didn't try first, though)....can't believe how weak the new 14R is.

Strange...mine runs fine underwater. You must have gotten a lemon!

Take it back, mine runs great under water, but you have to take out the air filter, otherwise it gets soggy and it will bog down a little. Maybe that is your problem?

Mine is fine down to about 20 feet then I can feel just a little mush...other than that it's as strong as on dry land.

What octane oil are you using?

I always go to 1030 octane underwater, but *this is important* - ONLY underwater.

My biggest issue underwater is turning radius. Kawasaki claims 10.2 ft. but mine seems to be more like 10.199. Should I be concerned?

You only need two tools: WD-40 and Duct Tape.
If it doesn't move and should, use the WD-40.
If it shouldn't move and does, use the duct tape.

I wouldn't call this ball busting... I'd call this castrating.

Now this is some funny stuff guys. Maybe I need to try one of those snorkel thingys like I see on Jeeps around here the next time I ride underwater. Maybe I can nail down that "fluid" launch motion that I hear works so well.

What's really cool is the sound is amplified in all directions, next time I'm taking off the muffler, should add 10hp & sound awesome.
