Rain induced problem on '04 LT?
It appears my 2004 K1200LT (18500 miles) has developed an allergy to rain. Approximately 12 miles into my morning commute (in rain), the engine died when I was slowing for a red light. (The bike was parked in my carport overnight, so was dry upon departure). Fortunately she fired right back up, but I discovered she would not idle. I had to keep the engine speed at or above 1500 RPM to keep it running. At highway speed, I also noticed any slight throttle roll-off would result in what appeared to be higher than normal (excessive/abrupt) engine braking. For the evening commute back home, the rain had stopped, but the problem continued until it appeared the bike "dried out" and by the time I arrived home (64 miles later), she was running/idling normally. I have actually experienced this situation on two different days this week, with the problem only occurring after being in rain. Prior to these two time, I've experienced no problem at all in significantly heavier rain. Dry rides reveal no problem. I assume the first thing to do is have the dealer check the Motronic Codes...but was wondering if any forum members might have experienced a similar situation or have an idea as to what is causing this problem.
