This forum is amazing. I went from confused (was it my imagination?!) to sad to angry to hopeful! Itís been pouring rain since last night and will continue another 8 hours or so, so I havenít gotten to checking the bike. (I really need to park this baby indoors somewhere)
- Thank you, really appreciate your suggestions. I will check out the starter relay. I did move the wires around, however I didnít unplug the switches to fit the bellmouth. I (not so simply) rerouted them upwards and around at max stretch. (Oh, I may have unplugged them to have a look-see. Maybe they arenít back on tight?)
You caught me on the included water guard. I was lazy and didnít install it, especially after seeing how small it was. I felt it was too brittle to really stop water entry behind the cover. This weekend I aim to install something a little more protective. Potentially wrapping a plastic bag around the switches (?).
I usually wash my bike with a little water-filled spray bottle, and then ďwax itĒ with a wash n wax spray. Once a year I may take it to the self-wash but there itís focused on the hard to reach parts like engine crevices and under the bike.
On the LED shorts Ill start at being more protective of the flasher relay. Iíll wrap it up in something first and then see if LED flashing can withstand the rain.
- Thank you. Really appreciate the photo attachment. Hopefully you hit the nail on the hammer with the short in the starter relay. Once the rain stops Iíll look at drying the switch out as well as protecting that entire under the left side cover area with something plastic.
Now I just have to be patient until the rain stops.
