won't run when wet

greenspun.com : LUSENET : CB550 : One Thread

I just bought a 550k, and for what ever reason when I ride in the rain it just stops running. I thought that maybe the coil was craked so I replaced that and the problem continues. If anyone has an Idea of what it might be, I would be most thankfull.

thanks, Richard

Have you looked for leaks in the intake system? I had the same issue before and the carbs had come just loose enough to draw in moist/steamy air into the carbs and kill the engine.

Good luck from Canada
