    96 zxi 1100 problem

    hey all got a question for ya. last year my 96 zxi was swamped (by a fat kid) and water got in the electrical box (not in the engine). still ran fine pulled it up on the beach drained it, and rode the rest of the day no problem. the next week I walked out side and it was sitting on the trailer running!!! yes thats right!! no lanyard, switch in the off position!!! sitting there idling!!! wasnt running too long though cuz the cyls wrent hot... just warm. got it shut down and began investigating. found a broken bulkhead in the e box and the inside was nasty rusted and corroded. got a used box from a 900 zxi on ebay. hooked it up and it ran fine for 1-2 minutes on the hose. then just lost spark. start back up... same thing. thought maybe the brain? my old one looked okay, sealed etc. cleaned up the terminals put it back in same sh#t. runs fine for a few and loses spark. went thru carbs ok, I can visually see it is getting fuel. even tried holding the idle up still just shuts off. any ideas? i'm pullin my hair out here!!!

    thanks in advance!!

    has to be electrical... zxi is known to have some electrical problems... Check your handlebar switches first.... Then cut back your spark plug wires and make sure they are getting good contact. Check your ground wire, it can become corroded and make intermittent connection and mess with diagnosis... Simple things first.
