sv650s loss of power/cutting out

i have just brought a suzuki sv 650s k2model{02plate} i was on my way home and the engine started dying and would suddenly spurt forward and when i pulled up the revs would drop and then cut out, it went into the shop and they said it was because water had got into the front sparkplug and that this is a common problem with sv650s if this is true does anyone know a good way to fix this as it rains a lot in this country

Welcome fab13,you have just bought a bike that will not perform in the rain:wacko:.

Take it back and ask for your money back.

If you start tampering with it then the short warranty will be void.

They may decide to fix it.(said jimmy):smile

front spark plug

Does this bike have a fender extenda?

Surely there should be a drain hole in the plug well?

I had a 400 four back in 1976 with all plugs/caps open to the elements,had to seal all with Holts ignition sealer spray.

If your going to keep this bike you`ll need a fenda extenda (on one bike i fitted two extendas).

The sealant did work for a while,also tried vaseline/grease with a brush.

Today you have silicone leads/caps/grease also high temp gasket sealant.

Also enquire about a drain hole in that plug well.

Jaffa says about the drain hole in the plug 'well' make sure you keep it clear.

Check the SV forums as well for other owners problems and solutions.
