    Why does this happen?

    well ive had my bike for awhile now but only really rode it in the dry so today i wake up and its hammering down with rain and i think lets go: while i was out my bike was really under performing as id increase the throttle it seemed to just die out pure spluttering or it would just cut out i couldnt figure the prob out untill i got home and started to jet wash the dirty thing and i noticed that while i was reving it to keep the engine from getting soaking it was startin to splutter again so i stopped the jet washer and reved it abit more within 20 secs it was bk to normal i then jet washed all by my air filter ( which i might add faces forward 2 the front wheel) and reved and it would splutter like mad again anyone know how i can stop water and tha getting in? or can i turn my filter around? so it fast backwards? my air filter is pritty much the same as this apart from its just flat no slight cone on it http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/MINI-MOTO-DIRT-K-N-K-N-AIR-FILTER-STACK-MPH-NEW_W0QQitemZ8057378509QQihZ019QQcategoryZ25640QQssPageNameZWDVWQQrdZ1QQcmdZViewItem thx for the help

    Could use a Little Advice!

    hey I've been searching the net now for alot off info and have read alot about the things im lookin into but i still cant find what im looking for, as u all probably know its typical internet and one site says one thing and another says another lol anyways..... more 2 the point so i was out on the weekend on my 110cc (i think its 125cc cause its fastest 110 ive seen around my area but manual says 110) that i bought off ebay in all fairness ive not had a problem untill i hit a slight ditch while wheeling it across the field and flipped it.... ive included sum photos off the fairings and would appriciate sum help on the following questions Fairings: http://img215.imageshack.us/img215/2913/photo00032ei.jpg http://img509.imageshack.us/img509/6963/photo00045rz.jpg http://img226.imageshack.us/img226/6239/photo00051bt.jpg http://img226.imageshack.us/img226/7530/photo00062jt.jpg Questions: the damage is quite minimal so should i glue it? If yes what glue would you recommend? My m8 had same plastics and used a black glue had to use a silicon gun to use it dried like rubber and very flexy but he forgot the name and lost the tin any ideas? any other way i can repair the plastics without using glue? (i read u could use a soldering iron and sort off smelt the bits 2gether carfully) also another problem altho its not a concern atm as its not 2 difficult 2 fix but i could use sum info below is sum pics off the sprocket....... http://img501.imageshack.us/img501/7884/photo00072az.jpg http://img226.imageshack.us/img226/3292/photo00087el.jpg and the questions: My chain almost cums off everytime i hit wet mud and the back tire spins 2 much any ideas what would be the problem? the sprocket nuts and bolts seem 2 rattle alot hence the pictures above 2 are missing these are becuase they where rounded and had to be remove any idea if i can use anything to stop these moving and never have to worrie about em again? thx for the time and effort taken to reply to these questions yours thankfully Mandel
