Went for a spin yesterday, about 120miles or so. After maybe 80 started to rain heavy so stopped for coffee for a half hour or so. Very heavy rain during that time and bike was not covered at all.
Came out and headed off. It started loud backfiring and missing very badly for about 15 mins. If I kept speed around 45/50ish, not too bad, but try to accelerate and put load on engine, no hope. Would start and idle no problem.
Obviously, after that time it dried out and ran like its brilliant self.
Just wondering if anyone could point me in right direction of where water got in?
I feel it may have been ignition switch which is the old mechanical type,but any other suggestions or experiences welcome.
As usual, thanks to all who may reply.
