Default waterproofing

how do you keep the magneto dry? Can you ride in the rain?
Keep the sun in your face and the wind on your back, where ever you go.

Default Re: waterproofing

good question WSB
I too would like to hear what someone with more knowledge than me has to say abuot this.
Off the top of my head I would say just make sure the cover plate is sealed good where it bolts on and make sure the bolts have a good seal. Other than that I really don't know for sure.

Default Re: waterproofing

I ride in the rain alot....I use a little RTV around the mag & clutch cover to keep water out. Also some over the electrical connecters. I use fender's on my bike and that does help keep water off the motor.

I have had no problem's riding in the rain..just don't go splashing in puddles of water like you are in a swamp buggy your best to keep water away from the carb so you don't suck it in. I alway's lube my chain and check my wheel bearing's after a good soaking.

I also use a little RTV on the CDI, especialy were the plug wire goes in...
Watch out for "Splashers" you know...the ones that make a game out of trying to splash you with water when they pass you....They will
