Default Rain n torque tubes

I see these posts about these torque tubes getting wet sucking in water in the motor cutting out, I came to the conclusion that the throttle bodies get dirty when the filters get wet big investment big disappointment it has nothing to do with the spark plugs has nothing to do with any type of wiring around your bike as soon as torque tubes go back to the big sucker you won't have that problem. Anybody else have any thoughts

I heard that Witchdoctors make little umbrellas that attach to the ends of the filters. $89 + $29.95 shipping.

K&N sells "pre-chargers" or "dry-chargers"... I mean if you're worried about water.

I've had torque tubes ever since there were torque tubes, I have ridden in torrential downpours for hours on end and the bike never missed a beat. I don't think about it at all.

All the time Ive had em and ridden in full on deluges Ive never had the bike stop on me.
Once when I was going through a dry tunnel and it was really torrential outside I cracked the throttle wide open and she stuttered a bit but hey it was extreme provocation and the filters woulda been saturated.
Normal riding in rains not a problem...You can get rainsocks for em that work as a sorta prefilter if you're worried.
Google water injection..a little moisture actually help cool the charge!
