Hey, as the title says, when it rains hard my TLR runs on one cylinder on and off. I have a Yoshi tail tidy fitted and i think water is getting at the CDI or something.
Has anyone had this problem,
Yep mine did this also, found out for myself was cause by a hole in drain of fuel tank and water was leaking into main fuel tank, blocked up the hole under fuel cap to test and all seamed fine after a few tanks of clean gas, ended up getting a new tank thou.
I had the pleasure of being caught in what they called a torrential downpour in Seattle. BIke started running on one cylinder, then I pulled in to a harley shop in Tacoma and the dude lent me a spot on his shop floor to check it out. Water leaked into the front plug boot. He reccomended di-electric grease around the plug boot. Never again had the problem.
