Aslong as Electrics are well covered it will be fine asuming the engine is left running.

I did this to mine awhile ago and a small amount of water got past the HT lead, causing the sparkplug to arch out - Thing is it only started arching 4 days after i cleaned it.

If you do have any problems check out the Sponsers page for any help you may need.

Personally a trip to AutoSafe soon sorted it all out. The symptons once it was arching was a popping exhaust, severe lack of power and generally didnt run right
