Check all the wiring, electrical, and any air intake to see if water has affected the areas.

I'd almost bet the farm that you got water in one or more electrical conections involving the ignition circuits.Most likely though it is a bad (or loose)spark plug boot since it still starts.If it's bad or loose,then this sympton would occur when wet because the water would get at the spark plug shorting it out.G'luck Trommy

REST EASY, THIS IS A 5 MINUTE FIX

I came across this forum, looking for the same answer as you. I know this is too late to help you, but it may help someone else searching the same problem.

On the 'drivers side' (use a car as reference) on the engine, there is a cover with a large round plate. On the bottom of the cover, There is a 12mm bolt head sticking out. Remove the bolt head, water and grease should flow out. Make sure you put something down, as this will stain concrete, with the bolt head out, drive around a bit . Put the drain plug back in and go at it!

To help keep this from happening again, If you look on either end of that cover, you see plastic vent pipes that run under the front wheel. I cut a piece of rag, and stuck over the opening of the pipe and secured it with a hair band...

I Absolutely Love this Bike!

      Trying to change front wheel bearings. I removed the cotter pin and castle nut. Hub won't budge. Is there an additional retaining clip? Seems to be one of those push on type that barbs on the thread of the spindle. How do I remove it?

      I am having an issue where it sounds like the gears are slipping if I hit the throttle really hard and also after letting off when the engine brake is applied. Also, the drive train that goes to the front also rides again the gear shift box. I will attach pictures and a video here shortly.
      Thanks in advance!
