What is killing your mags and CDIs? The Silicone or the exposed area? Thanks for the inputs, I'll silicone my mag grommet and block the back tire spray from going up the aircleaner and into the carb/engine. I'll hold onto my stock plug boot until this one gets heated and cracked, otherwise it looks like it is sealing. The other day I drove through 1 foot of water for about 10 feet so that just my exhaust was submerged, it bubbled but did not stall and forged me successfully across.
