hmmm...since you said it smelled really bad of fuel i wonder if your tuner maybe malfunctioning and dumping way too much fuel in there???
if it keeps acting up I'd bypass the tuner to see if that fixes it...if so then you know its a defective tunerMentat said:I was thinking much the same thing. I wonder if those connections get wet if it would make the solenoids stay open or something?
I was going to read the plugs, but since I cruised it around the block that last time and it ran ok any fouling probably burnt off anyway.
man if water did get inside of the unit i'd be concerned about corrosion in the futureROADKILL said:On the Raider forum some of the guys have mentioned that water has gotten inside the Cobra unit - one quick fix is take the unit apart and put silicoe around the edges and put back together.
+1 let us know what you found out pleasekraaazymike said:Did you ever figure out the problem?
ok man sounds good let us know what you find outMentat said:I haven't manned up and tackled it yet. I got real sick for a few days and stayed in bed, then started a long haul of graveyards. Been taking the CBR to work. :-/
Definitely going to tear into it tomorrow or the next day.
On the to do list:
Check spark plug wires at the plugs and coils
Check cobra auto tuner to see if it has any obvious water damage
Check any electrical connections I can get my hands on for corrosion/loose connections
Ride the dang thing around and see what happens
