Went home for lunch yesterday intending to load the bike on trailer and take to shop and just for giggles I turned it on a hit the starter button.
Lo and behold it ran for about two seconds on two then sputtered and only ran on one again.
Thet led me to believe I might have a fouled plug due to trying to run it on one. So on the return trip to the office I stopped at the local dealer and bought some spark plugs, installed the front one when I got home last evening and it lit off like nothing was ever wrong. I did make sure that I used my air line and blow any residual moisture out of the spark plug cap first.
Went ahead and swapped out the rear plug while I was at it and glad I did. As I mentioned in earlier post the front plug was barely finger snug, the rear was the same.
I haven't had the bike that long and it wasn't due for a service interval yet, ran OK so I never thought of checking the spark plugs for proper torque. They're a pain to get to anyway. Just goes to show you that you never make assumptions on anyone else's work.
In the end I can only assume that from the torrential downpour the front plug cavity filled with water and made a short path from the plug cap to ground. Though I removed the cavity drain hole stopage the cap internals were still wet or the plug was truely fouled.
Appreciate the valuable suggestions.
Those, some experimentation and deductive reasoning got things sorted out.
