water in the right rear spark plug hole

Is there a way to stop water from standing in the rear right cylinder hole. It causes missing until the water evaporates. i didn't know if there is a plug cover that will stop this.

rear axle nut will remove the well, clean her out. much easier than sucking it out with a straw! might replace the oring while you have it out. 10 minute job!

Have you looked to see just exactly where the water is coming from? Does it sit outside in the rain? Or is it from getting washed?
If it's not draining, you can take it out and clean it. Just make sure and get as much water out of it as possible, cause when you take it out, any water in there will drain into the oil.

Your Kawi may not be stock. And Im assuming you meen the deep hole.
There is supposed to be an insert (it screws in), and then the stock plug has a rubber end on it that is supposed to seal it.

Axles ?...aint he talkin about the cyl head where the deep plug goes in ?

Actually no...it will drain into the combustion chamber of the rear cyl. And there IS no drain for the plug holes far as i know.

Am I misreading something here? The OP mentioned Rear Cyl, and misfires....
Mebbe I havent gotten enough sleep lately....

Yes brother Wolfie...the rear axle nut fits into the plug well nicely and it can be used to unscrew the plug well tube.

The tube does in fact have a tiny drain hole in it....somewhere I saw a post of a photo showing the location of it on the engine...just can't find it right now.


EDIT: found the older post where Lance talks about oil leaking past the o-rings and seeping out the drain opening under the breather.....but the photo does not come up.

KC2 showed me this weekend where the hole was (on his)...I guess the vn700 aint got one....tiny MF though...no wonder it clogs....we talked about it, and honestly, if ya get a proper size plumbing washer to fit the top of the jug at the plug, this should fix all. Also, I looked at my buddy's 1000 Concourse...those "deep holes" have a special rubber fitting that seals the whole sheebang...bet that part would work on our deeps too...its the same plug end.....

Looks to me if there was a tiny hole on the deep well on those plugs sockets, the water and gunk would drain right into the engine because it's so deep in the engine it has nowhere to go.
I could be looking at this wrong too, not enough sleep and taking Norco for pain.

Do not give TSmith68 any advice. It is RakerBill under a new screen name. Bill has defrauded several members of well over $500, either by payments not sent, or items sold by him that he never sent. He claims to not be Bill, but he lives at the same address and is working on the same bike that Bill owned. That's too much of a coincidence. And even if he isn't Bill (which is unlikely), he has already cheated at least one member out of items he has not paid for. Do not help him or even talk to him until he makes it all right.
