running bad
Well I rode the bike to work this morning. It was foggy this morning. By the time I got half way to work the bike looked like I just washed it. It was wet. So far I have not rode in the rain or been caught in it. At this time the bike started to run bad. Started to back fire and would not take the gas. At lunch I went out to see if I could find out what was the problem. She ran great, started right up idle good, took the throttle when I gave it. Ran like it normally does. I have already bought the rebuild kits for the carbs to do this winter. Alone with new plugs and belts. Now while I am working on her what else should I check or replace to take care of this. I feel if I was stuck in a rain storm I would be stuck on the side of the road. Thank

from what you describe sounds like the sparkplug wires and/or caps are causing a problem

Make sure the spark plug well drain holes aren't not plugged.

Thanks I did the drain holes when I put a new stator in.
