    Damn, that's freaky, thanks for the heads up, it does not rain here in Yuma much at all but mine is going into a zip lock as soon as I get the bike.

    I think any item such as this should be water resistant!!! No doing it yourself, cobra should do it for almost a 500 price tag. Come on.....this is my next investment, gotta lose the v&h fuel pack

      I am also going to call Phil tomorrow in regards to this matter and I recommend that more call him also.  When last I spoke with him he told me that he wants to hear any and all concerns that we the customer may have, good or bad.

      Ok Toxic, I have a product that I use in my job to seal processors on our circuit boards in our wheel balances in the field. Some of these processors are senative to moisture. The produce is Electronic Grade Sealant/Adjesive, it's $6.00 from Jamesco Electronics. The part number is 19-155. You can use it directly on the board to seal it. NOTE, I am going to use it to seal the entire case and not the board so that there will be no warranty issues. Go to their website before you close the unit up.
      Guys, I know you all are airing on the side of caution, but you do not want to put this unit in a zip lock bag. There is moisture in the air and the unit will sweat in the bag. Now you will creating your own wet situation.

      Hunterman, when you say seal the entire case are you talking about the seam or actually sealing the entire unit?

      After looking at Toxic photos, it looks like you can pop the case open because it is held together with tabs. I'm going to look at mine tomorrow to open the case and seal the two halves together. Even if some gets on the board, no big deal, because the sealant is safe for electronics. That way, you are not placing the unit in a bag and causing it to sweat.

      Yes at the rear where the wires go in....go under the rubber grommet and plastic case and just pop apart with a small screwdriver....pops right open.  Good point on the moisture in the bag. why you're there, give me your input on the case....its really a tight seal and shocked that much water even got there.

      When I look at it tomorrow, I will post what I find. I know the case snaps tight, but when you consider it was being drench with water coming off the tire and the positive pressure of air from the speed of traveling forward, water getting into the case is possible. Lets get this fixed and get back to riding.

      On a side note if anyone is thinking of sealing the entire unit, I would think you would want to open it up to be sure that it is dry.

      I also have a question about sealing the entire unit. Does it need to breath or will sealing it entirely be ok?
