I did not see this covered anywhere so I wanted to share it. I have had problems with this bike dieing after crossing water since I have had it. I read the threads about it and it always focused on the FCR carb. Mine has the standard s carb so that got ruled out. The bike died on me this weekend after splashing through a couple of small puddles. The bike died around the next corner. I tried to start it about 10 times when it would happen to catch it would only idle and would die as soon as I gave it any throttle. Got worried that I was going to drain the battery and decided to let it dry out. Waited about 8 minutes and tried it again and cranked up like it never happened, ran great the rest of the day. see video that was recorded of the failure here The bike was covered with mud so when I got home I washed it thoroughly. Tried to start it after washing it and experienced the same symptoms. Let it sit and dry then it fired right up ran fine. Thought about it the next day at work and decided that when I got home I would spray the hose in different locations until it died and suffered the same symptoms. This test eliminated the carb as the problem, and indicated that something under the tank- an electrical connection most likely- was the culprit. Pulled side panels, seat and loosened tank until I could lift it and access to what I would call the coil that feeds the spark plug, and multiple other connectors. I then disassembled each connector individually drying with compressed air and applying dielectric grease to it and then putting it back together before going to the next connector (didn't take them all apart at the same time, one at a time to avoid confusion). Let it sit over night and I just tested it by spraying water under the tank and all around the motorcycle in general. Results were that it did die a couple of times when spraying directly on top of the carb, not sure if I was getting some mist in the air box (3x3 mod completed) or what but it started right back up and ran fine. It was just idling and I dont think it would have died if I had been riding with any throttle on. My bike details - 2004 drz400 3x3, drilled out end pipe stock exhaust, stator replaced before I bought the bike, other non mechanical improvments currently 9200 miles. Hope this helps someone diagnose their problem in the future.
