Help, some problem with my Spada

  1. Hi Guys,

    Ok I need some help. Whilst riding in the POURING rain the other day (and it was really p@#$ing down) I noticed when i went to accelerate I got no response. Now it was only a momentary thing, in fact so momentary I thought I was imagining it. It only happpened twice, so didn't think much about it. But when I went to start my Spada this morning, and it hadn't been started in the meantime, she was reluctant to start without me giving her a good rev, even with the choke on fully. And when we went to go, she actually cut out. Once we were off she was fine and I had no problems all the way to work I'm pleased to say.

    Could it be just water in the electrics or is it a deeper problem?

  2. You're getting water into the wells where your plugs sit. Spray with WD-40 and it will solve the problem. :)
  3. get her down to the nearest briggs and stratton dealer... theyll look after her.
