Re: will rain hurt it?
I bought a bike cover at Wal-Mart, about $15, that I use to cover mine when it rains. Works GREAT :-) . I would definitely do this as water can easily short things out and cause multiple headaches. Also I had problems with my carb leaking too. Thought it was out of the float bowl gasket but after new gaskets and sealer, I discovered the gas was leaking thru the bowl itself (porous casting).
