The weather here (S.C.) has been wonderful here lately; If only my bike would start. I got caught in the rain last week and aparently fouled the plugs on my 954. It's the third time I've had fouled plugs in 6 months and I've about had it with the iridium's. (The other two times were from the compter running in open loop after a code was thrown.) It seems that whenever anything isn't 100% right, they drop out quick. Anyone else have this problem?

Just when I thought I knew everything.... Can somebody tell me how does rain cause your bike to foul plugs????. I can see if maybe you're one of those Harley riders that has a velocity stack on the end of the carb and you get stuck in the rain. Maybe....

It still beats me, but all four were wet with fuel. Tried cleaning them and reinstalling, but still no life. Napa couldn't find a replacement so we'll try NGK's Vs. the Denso.

I had dropped the battery off at the local Napa for a charge while I waited on my plugs to come in ($13 next day). Turns out my battery would only hold a full charge for about 2hrs, and then start discharging. I'll get a new one from the dealership, but could this have been the root of my fouling issues? The bike always started right up and ran well so I never thought to check it.
