Re: \'05 vinson auto
I have a 04' Vinson that I have taken across a lot water sections and have never had a problem. There isn't any difference for intake tract from 04 to 05 that I am aware of.
However, The chances of you getting water into your tranny are possible. As with any belt style tranny, air needs to flow over and around the clutch to cool it. Engines also require air to run, and there are tracts that air flows through for both.
Each manufacturer faces an issue of balancing air intake and not having air being replaced with water. Dependant on where the opening is located, the rider needs to pay special attention as to how deep the crossing is. If deeper water is where you find home, than you need to modify your intakes (tranny and motor) with a snorkel set up.
There is a drain located on the bottom side of the clutch cover that is for this very situation. If the water was never drained out and the clutches started to rust, cleanup would be needed. An average mechanic, dependant on how bad it is, should be able to dry out even the wettest of clutches in just a few hours. As far as a motor, prepare for a larger bill.
