I have a Super E carburetor and have been experiencing problems in heavy rain. What is the best air filter to help me with this situation?

Problems with a stock Super E housing? I run K&N filters in mine (I forget the part number since I bought the elements so long ago) and never had problems even when leaving my bike outdoors in rain then riding it in the rain.

What filter are you running?

I'm sure that the problem is with the filter and not the housing. I'm running the filter that was with the bike when I brought it. It is a blue foam filter. I know I'm in need of a new one and am hoping for some suggestions before I go out and buy one. Thanks.

I'm running the stock tear drop with a K&N filter aswell.

Heavy rain has never been an issue. Would recommend it.
I've never ran a foam filter, so I don't have the comparison.

K&N will work best with the stock S&S breather...

K&N sells rain socks (branded as drycharger) for most/all their filters. http://www.knfilters.com/search/wrap.aspx
