Thanks for all of the tips guys. I am thinking that plug wires may indeed be the culprits here, or at least worth looking at, as I am pretty sure they are they are the originals. I think the bike does stay fairly dry - mostly in fact - under the carport, but as Vulster mentioned - even just a little moisture might do it. That would also make sense as far as the bike running fine later when I get off work - because by then, everything has dried off.
My bike does still have the ears, and I am thinking it is probably a good idea to look at getting some new filters too, as I'm sure those are original as well.
I will try all that and let you all know how she runs after the next time it rains. Which, here in Phoenix, could be a VERY long time from now! Haha
Thanks again all : )
