power problems

Drive through some very heavy rain two days ago. Now the radio is popping and turning on and off. And the head light dimms out as I roll to full throutle. 2013 voyager is the bike. Is there anything u can check before I roll four hundred miles back to Dallas.

When I rode back to day I noticed that the motor ran fine and there was condisation be hind the screen of thee radio. When that cleared up after a hour or so I turned on the radio and every thing was fine. Now all I have to do is figure out how water got in there and figure out how to stop it.

I think you should see if its a warranty fix, like leaking door seals on new cars. Glad it cleared up, but is it going to be a problem everytime it get wet?

I can't imagine that happening from riding through a rain. I do that all the time.

Now, one time I had the bike sitting when a driving rain came up and was hitting the bike from the rear. I ended up with some condensation and turn signals were flaky for a day or two.

They do say not to spray water directly at the controls so I figure a driving rain from the rear was just as bad.
