Hi
Could you point me to the right section in the archives
when its raining or roads are wet the bike runs rough stalls when i stop unless i use choke or high revs but when its dry runs beautiful
i have feeling its something simple but i am missing it.

Start simple. I would imagine its your 32 year old ignition (spark plug) wires. You can check by spraying them with water from a household pump sprayer (windex ect). If you notice a change in idle you have found the problem.

Make sure your air filter box has all its parts and is properly assembled.
