speedo jumping and motor missing

I'd like to start by saying hi to everyone this is my first post on here. Iv go an 08 650 prowler that iv had for about 4 months now its alway ran very good up till about a week ago . Took it out riding with afew friends and ended up going though a few water holes maybe 2-3" over the floor board. No problem directly after but about 45 min later the speedo peged out and the motor started to miss really bad. Checked every plug the following day for water but found noon. Started up and ran fine for about 20min then did the samething but now the speedo jumps randomly up and down shut the bike off started right back up and ran fine for maybe 5min then right back to missing and speedo jumping.... Motors not over heating and runs great till speedo freaks out......... Iv let it sit now for a week and now its running fine no more missing but the speedo is still jumping between 0 and 20mph even with the key on and the motor not running it just sits there and jumps around ........ Sorry this is so long but im really going crazy trying to figure this out any and all help is greatly appreciated.

Iv checked everything and cant seem to figure it out.im pretty sure something is wet as it does seem to be getting better but still acts up from time to time but not like it was. The only thing iv yet to do is add more grounds. Im hoping to do that this weekend. Thanks for all the help. Is there anyway the gauge pod could be causing this? Im pretty sure i seen some condensation on the inside of the screen but its gone now.

Hey Joe remember your gauge needle would sweap back and forth? It's to get the drivers attention and in your case it was indicating your engine was overheating.

Hey Camo, something for you to check and it seems like a small thing but could cause you lots of headache. there should be a drain on your motor down at the base of you spark plug, sometimes this can get clogged and wont allow the water that gets down in there to drain out and it just keep your cap and plug essentially covered in water. pull off your spark plug boot and look down in there with a light, you can clean it using a piece of wire and make sure you go all the way through with it. Its a long shot but I've seen this happen before and it can be a pain in the a** to figure out. Something to try, hope it helps.
