Default Pull start + rain = bad day.

Hi, Just had my bike start intermitantly dying in the rain today, Turns out I had a 1/4 cup of water under my magneto cover.. The pull start hole let it in.

I highly recommend anyone using a pull start in bad weather to try and either weatherproof the pull cord when its fully retracted, or drill a drain in the bottom of the pull start cover -_-;

PS: My pull start spool broke in 2 weeks and I can't even use it anymore. I think im going back to the stock starting method of dumping the clutch at speed.
