    I've got a hard troubleshooting to do on my old SE lady. She began missing sparks occasionally immediately after a hydropressure wash and it should be an electrical shortcut. It always disappears after a couple of minutes when the bike gets dry from operating engine. I used not to care about it until this last summer when things got worse, she also began missing when riding in heavy rain. This is no fun at all and I have no idea which specific electrical component is the bad guy.:ear Any ideas what components to begin investigating?

    Start with the HV arrea, the plugs on top of the spart. check for crack's, seal and wires on top being ok. Then work your way up from those wires to the ECU. that should do it.
