Fuse shorting out due to rain
I've been doing my commute (25 miles, one way) in full down pour rain the last two days. This am on my way in I lost power to the instrument panel, (speedometer, tach, fuel, temp) turn signals, brake light etc.
I brought the bike into the building and a few minutes later found the burned out 15 amp fuse. I replaced it knowing it'll trip right away if it's a "wet" short. It did. I placed two large fans around the bike, set 'em on high and left it alone for a few hours. Came back, replaced the fuse again........no problem. Got lights and all.
So my question is this. Has anyone else had this "wet short"? What did you find?
I hope this turns out to be a one time shot. Chasing a come and go short is a drag.
