Post My Husky is scared of water.
On the last few rides I have had this problem. I enter a puddle/ creek crossing and water splashes up causing the bike to stall. It will restart easily, some times, even if submersed in a creek. It seems to be the initial splash that does it. Have had it running at home and sprayed water everywhere but doesn't do it. Have taken it to the shop and they can't pin point it either.
Anyone had this problem? dontknow

My 08 510 doesn't like water either, my problem is water sitting around the spark plug well and not draining out, seems to arc out and stop. Dose of wd40 and she's ff again BangHead The bike shop couldn't sort this problem either!

Start your bike up, let it idle for a couple of minutes, And then get your garden hose and wash around the throttle body area (Exhaust side only) Tell us what happens after that.

wd the shit outta ya plug lead etc.

when you hit water give it a hit of WD. huski's are terrible in their design re water and the plug cap.

Keep it WDed and you should have a better level of sanity

Hey Sunny if it is your plug cap - put a zip tie around the plug cover where the cable comes in to help seal it up a bit.
