Riding in Rain--no top end response?
Got caught at work in a rather heavy rain. Only live about 5 miles from work and its city driving. So, I rode home never getting above 3rd gear. Most of the time in 1st and 2nd. It seemed to me like I had no upper end throttle response. Sort of fell off about 4K. Anyone else see this before? Didn't ride it to work due to overcast today so I don't know if drying out fixed it.
I do have to say, I have noticed that it won't start all the time now. Push the button and nothing happens. Push it again and it works. May be the switch, may be the solenoid, but it may be it's not charging well. I didn't see any dimming of the lights but trouble engaging starter and lack of top end have been symptoms on other vehicles when the voltage is getting low.
