Understand how frustrated you must be
I'm just not convinced that MVs are water tight enough to withstand the medium to long term corrosive effects of regular wetting & drying of electronics and electrics. Read lots of anecdotal stories of issues MV owners have experienced with bikes that have been water washed or ridden periodically in rain.I used it in the rain last year at the tail of the dragon....... it rained a lot that week. I have also used every bike I have ever owned in the rain.
All I can say to that Kevin is the MV uses the same sealed wiring connectors as many other motorcycles and automobiles.
I think anecdotal evidence of water problems on MVs is just that. I have ridden in downpours on my 910R more than once, and wash her with a garden hose periodically. I have never experienced a water related problem.
I'm not saying water is always a problem on all MVs. But what if water is reaching more than just electrical connections, and happens to be seeping onto small circuit boards, or creating a high moisture condition around circuits. Again, just thinking out loud here without any real evidence.
And do you guys use dielectric grease or not?
