Take one of the carb vent hoses and re-route upwards over the battery into the airbox and this problem will disappear...
Common problem with these bikes. If all of the carb vent hoses are covered by water the motor shuts off and you get wet.

So, my advice is to never shut off the throttle, ever.

PC1 still makes the carburetor vent filter kit, and a bunch of us use them in Baja to keep the Baja silt from finding it's way up into the carb. You could use this to route your vent lines higher so they never draw in water. Or just go down to the local hardware store and buy some "T" s and some tubing and make your own higher vent tubes.
The vent hoses already have Ts on them... just pick one off the branch and route it higher. Might need to extend the hose depending on where you route it but I have never had any problems routing the existing hose into the airbox.
