Yesterday (Saturday, May 5, 2012), my bike suffered the second complete shutdown due to rain water entering the intake. The first time this happened, back in the Summer of 2011, I got caught in heavy rain like yesterday, and I was blowing steam out the back pipes after the bike stalled out while riding through the rain. Yesterday, same thing.
This is dangerous and scary. I have tried rigging up cotton mesh cloth around the intake, holding my hand in front of it (dangerous trick, let me tell you), etc. This intake needs a rain sock and needs it quick. I can find no reference to a rain sock Cobra makes for the PowerFlo and that astonishes me. Anyone have any advice I haven't tried (shy of switching out this intake for another) to cork the rain from this thing? I don't want to bend a rod or otherwise ruin my engine because this intake sucks in so much water when it rains, whether I drive fast or slow.
