Hi all,
The bottom half of my motor is exposed to the elements. I take it I need to protect the motor from any splashes of water when it rains. That is the case, right?

I tested taping up some flexible plastic underneath the motor area; that definitely will keep it dry, but unfortunately the motor gets *really* hot. Normally I can put my hand on the motor and it isn't too bad. With the plastic sheet the motor is excessively hot, and I can't keep my hand on it at all.

What do people do to solve the water sealing issue?

EDIT: apparently it is quite easy to find a motor cooling solution. IE:

thanks!
