DO not turn the engine over. Drain and replace all fluids, including the fuel. Replace air filter(s). Open almost everything and drain water. You can use air to help. Unplug all multi-plugs and completely dry with blown air.
Pull plugs and turn engine over. This will expel excess fluid. Put plugs back in. Start the unit. Run until quite warm, but do not ride it hard. Work out any misfiring.
Drain and replace all fluids, while still warm. Then run the unit again for longer than 20 minutes after fully warm.
Make note not to ride in water again.

What is the normal engine tempeture for a 2007 suzuki gsx-r 750

Your temp gauge should read in degrees F. Water, I hope, water cooled, the bike should run at 180, 190, depending on how hot it is out. If you are in traffic, and red lights, it will be much higher, your fans should kick on at 212 or so, and stay on till you get back in the wind. My bike runs exactly 100 degrees hotter than the outside air temp. i have checked it a hundred times, when I pass a thermometer outside a bank or something. It is weird, but I always know how hot out it is. Hope this helps.

I have 2002 YZ 125 and coolent is leaking- so I replaced the gasket on what it looked like a water pump contected to the hose easy 5 to 6 screws selaent and gasket good to go. However that fixed the leak...

your water pump shaft runs threw bearing and seal,and your seal is bad,not to big of job to replace,you can order part off they also have a breakdown of parts picture you can look at to help in seeing what needs to be removed to fix) and it will be ok to ride as long as you do not let the colant run out( no colant =overheat=locked up engine.) so check colant every 5-min of riding untill you fix.....

Engine misfires around 5000 revs and sometimes

Give your bike a tune up, Plugs , Air filter, clean the carbs. Do these jobs one at a time till the problem goes away, Dirty fuel from leaving the bike unused can also give grief.
Happy hunting

Does not run other than idle.

Make sure you have fresh fuel in it
Check the fuel system for contamination (water or sediment)
If the bike has been laid up then check the carb jets & airways are clear

Leakin Coolant...HELPPPPP!!!

After letting a bike idle for 30 minutes it would make me suspect that the bike was overheating...its not good to let a bike idle that long.. this is one of the two reason that California lets bikers split lanes... one is motorcycles will take up less space in traffic and the other is that it gives a chance to keep the bikes engine cooler with a constant airflow over the engine.
Now , #1 check radiator coolant level, if low, top it off with coolant. #2 if the bike idles fine after "approx". 5-10 minutes ( normal operating temp)...and your not overheating, then continue to let it idle till it gets to "around" 185 degrees or so..if you don't hear the fan come on, then get on your bike and ride it around the block to cool the engine down, if that helped then you know its a bad fan, or bad thermostat/fan switch. The trail of water you saw could also have come from the coolant overflow tank hose at the bottom of the bike when it was overheating...make sure that the coolant reserve tank is filled to the appropriate level. Also check your oil to make sure that it doesn't have water in it..if it"ll appear like a bubbly milkshake; if the oil is good, then chances are good that at least no internal damage was done. If after all this and it doesn't overheat and the fan comes on! then you"ll have to pull your fairings and check "all" the hoses for leaks. Hope this helps you out. Please can i get some feedback on this and let me know if this helped. thanks!
