Anybody else have problems with the right rear plug cavity filling up with water when it rains heavily. Unless I put my bike on the center stand (hernia, anyone?), I find water in the plug cavity on the right rear every time any amount of rain falls (like it is right now here in Toronto).

I believe there is supposed to be a drain hole in the well. Look to see if yours is plugged. Small wire should be able to open it up. I am sure someone with more knowledge will be by shortly.

The guys are all correct.. Each cylinder has a drain hole beneath each spark plug.. Over time, dirt, corrosion and crud builds up and blocks the holes.. A piece of wire or a small drill bit will clean them out.. You won't have any more problems once that's done..

The drains are open at the bottom and allow moisture to just run onto the ground.

Thanks Renegade...I should have known that I would have gotten a serious well, thought out reply from a guy in your neighbourhood. SilverDave lives only a mile or two from my brother, so I expect a bit more "down home humour" when I get response from that neck of the woods.

Just out of curiosity, do you sound like "Norm" on the "New Yankee Workshop", or do youi sound more like Tip O"Neill?:grinner:
