scooterising vs rain

Hi,

How is running your bikes after scooterising, when raining ?

Mine is running very poor, not enough power when twist the throttle and some sneeze into carb.

... just want to exchange some experience ...

I mention that the "dog bowl" is not completely cut all around, to avoid that high speed syndrome, see picture.

Marcel

Everything is done according Russian Wolf instructions:
> 170 mj
> 52 pj
> don't remember exactly the turns I have ...
> stock needle
>EPA removed
> the intake cover is open all around, except the front side. Means is open on the top, rear & bottom and closed at the front (only).

In good weather, no raining, is running perfect, no issues at all.
