Hi, My name is***** you for letting me try and assist you with your problem.
These problems are always the most difficult because it can either be water that got inside a wire harness connector, or in the intake and fouled the plug, or something got shorted out.
These motors will run on 1 cylinder so I'd like to know if you start it from cold and let it idle for a couple minutes if both exhaust pipes are the same temperature.
This would tell us if they both are in-fact firing.
If they are and it's cutting out then you need to start checking connections and replace the spark plugs.
You may find it or it just may fix itself after a week of drying out.
