Default Re: Can we ride in the rain?

My magneto had flooded even though I thought the grommet was sealed. The problem is the magneto area is hard to seal, even if u block the hole with silicone when the engine gets moving pressure will blow it out.
Also you can't run without an air filter in the rain (probably common sense)
I made a bashplate to prevent water getting near the magneto, and have ridden in heavy rain day after day for weeks with no engine troubles
