    I can hardly believe the above comment. As the Netherlands gets its share of rain as well, one primary reason to choose the Sena product was the (suggested??) build quality. Which cannot but include resilience to rain!

    iv just had the same problems the seal on the bass of my clamp has started to breakdown after only 6 months and as i very relay remove the unit the last time it rained the i kept getting static then it kept say that intercom had failed, i hadent even touched the the main unit but im in talks with sena to hopefully get this sorted as its the best thing iv bought in a long time.

    Waterproof unit should be 1st priority. Scala does it. Scala is inferior in terms of "easy to use" but my sena 20s both were replaced twice because of water so no sena for me until they have a waterproof unit. (also, they would get so many people move away from scala but their R&D or design department thinks otherwise because its been a while they are problematic in heavy rain and they do nothing)

    Is the 50S water resistant? Can it be used in the rain?

    Has anyone managed to do a DIY rain solution to a Sena device?

    I've recently bought an SF4, although I don't ride yet. I've got the helmet & comms device to start with.

    Although in a perfect world, corporates would be 100% logical, we unfortunately still live in reality.  Often in the past I've been forced to provide DIY upgrades to stuff I've bought which fails to live up to my expectations.

    I was looking at the SF4 unit & socket on my helmet, thinking about how to protect the contacts.  Got a couple ideas, but obv can't yet try anything out. 

    1.  electrical tape around the front half of the unit, obv covering the connection betw unit & socket.

    2.  Finding a way to cover the entire socket & unit with a plastic "bag" or "sleeve".

    Personally I'd probably trust my own DIY jobs rather than trusting some half-baked attempts to add "rain proof" onto a product using skimpy rubber somewhere.

    I've learnt about 2 or 3 other brands from the posts on these forums.  The only motorcycle shop worth it near where I live seems to specialise in Sena.  How difficult is it to rewire an entire helmet if changing the entire kit?

    Ran mine through the washer and dryer. Any hope? Red light comes on when plugged but will not turn on. Tried resetting. No success.

    Try rice in a zip lock baggie.

    SENA have made poor water resistant product for years. MANY MANY people complain about it and suggest to build a waterproof unit but nope, they don't do it, they don't care... Had a SENA 50r, had it replaced 3 times and then gave up and went back to SCALA with the Packtalk Edge. I don't like the way SCALA works but the waterproofing is gem and very reliable. I know I know, many people never had problems with their SENA but maybe it's the way my bike is designed that have the SENA's ingest a lot of water and ultimately, fail :(

     

    I was able to make a little plastic in the past for my SENA but in heavy downpour, I had problems so, I hope they will make a waterproof unit sooner or later.
