Gotta '99 FX650 vigor in May with only 4000 miles on the clock and since then put another 1000 on with relatively short trips. Been lucky with the weather until last week when it rained fairly hard and the hitherto trusty mount coughed to a stop.
Waiting a minute or so allowed it to start and run okay once more only to conk out again within a couple of minutes, repeating this scenario to limp home, stopping a total of 6 times in 8 miles.
As the front tyre appears to throw rainwater directly at the plug I wondered if there should be a spray shield preventing this - does anyone know of such a thing please? The HT lead and plug connector appear to be in top shape but could it be that these are somehow failing?

Any advice? Cheers...

What you can do FX is to start the bike and let it tick over and find some means of spraying some water onto the HT lead,if it stops the bike you've found the problem,this can be done with an old household kitchen cleaner sprayer. Regads Jeff.
