Unhappy Rain Again

After traveling at about 85-90mph for about 15 miles in relativly heavy rain the electronics seem to have gone wrong again, the fuel warning light comes on,even though it has over half a tank left, then it goes back to registering the correct level, the last time this happened the horn suddenly started the following day, the bike was recovered as the dealer stated it was not safe to ride, after 3 days it was given a clean bill of health, its a 04/05 K1200S, has anyone else seen problems of this type?

My bike 05/05 starts right after turning the switch on, no start button push needed. That happens only after washing the bike, talking to the dealer didn't help and here in SoCal doesn't rain very often so I can't say if this would occur in heavy rain, but I suspect it will.

In my case I guess the problem is the push button switch, but I haven't experience your problems. Apparently theirs' some kind of electrical leakage in our bikes but they present in different ways and when wet.
