Hi all,
i have a 1994 EN500 vulcan. and just a week ago i realize that the hole where the spark plug goes is like a little pool and some water stays there after i wash her. with some time the water gets into the engine.

the mechanic dismantle the engine (new rings and some other stuff) and the holes for the spark are now like new BUT i think that i'm going to have the same problem if some water gets there again for a while.

Anyone with the same problem or maybe a solution?

yeap but. i live in Costa Rica,
we don't have seasons like yo guys (spring, winter autumn...)
we have RAINY season and NOT RAINY season =/ and i don't know if that is going to ruin my trips later.
is this a know issue ? or is just my bike ?

My bike has a small hole on each side, between the cooling fins, which allows water to drain from the area around the spark plug. Mine was blocked up with insect debris until I cleaned it out.

Jazzdad:
yesterday i though about that solution but wasn't sure if that was possible,

i was afraid of ruining the block or something (the reason why i'm here)

can you send me some pics? (the more the better)
i really need to get that done because rainy season is coming and i have already paid a lot of money for the reconstruction of the thread and i believe that is not going to solve the problem if the water keeps getting there.
