I was doing some general cleaning and maintenance on my 96 250 Rebel the bike was running fine except for a detonation issue, that is in the process of being corrected. There was evidence of considerable water in the alternator housing, however the electrical system was not affected yet. This is a photo of one of the electrical poles on the alternator, I think trouble was imminent. Also note that there are two larger poles for ignition.
