gators don't float. on a 1992 Honda TRX300 4x4.I justkept going down,over the gas tank.. but the Honda didn't stall so I made it out, just got a little wet. still going strong.My brother parked his on top of a hill, about a month old, in 1993. and went into the woods to hunt, heard a big splash, thought he jumped a deer, but when he went back to look his Honda was not on the hill, he forgot to set the park-brake, it flipped upside down in a deep gorge,just a little tires were out of the water-completely submerged for about 20 to 30min.upside-doun on the handle bars. before we could flip it back over, pulled it out, it started right-up, plenty smoke, rode it all weekend, brought it to the shop, NO Water ANYWHERE..oil was fine, airfilter was dry..never had a problem since.very lucky..
Never buy electronic/shift/automatic,anything. and it should last 15yrs of hell.Watched a buddy's one catch fire riding through dry tall grass.
