Hi, my CBR125 (05) sounds like cack in the rain. Performance wise nothing really changes, its just it starts backfiring and sounds like the exhaust has water in it or something. Sounds really floppy and weak. Can anyone help?? Thanks in advance!

Going up a hill huh? I've experienced this on numerous test drives. I most always come back to the gap being too large on the spark plugs. Under load, its even harder for the spark to jump the gap. When the gap becomes too large on a spark plug, its due to wear and should replace plugs. I'd start there. The word you used to describe this, "jumps" sounds electrical to me. I know sounds pretty far fetched. :-) but electrical, ie ignitions faults will cause a sharp drop or increase in rpm, it can even seem as if it shakes. Whereas fuel starvation is more like a bogging, Its not a 100% complete drop off like electrical ignition issues can cause. I think the rain thing is coincidental. I can't think of anything regarding engine performance that rain will affect. I'd start with your spark plugs.
these sensors are a new thing just a few years out. they are still working out all the bugs, also you can try having the sensor replaced, if its glued to the window to much glue can affect preformance.
leaky intake or bad injector try unplugging injectors while running 1 at a time replace plug while running to find bad injector good injector changes rpm bad one does not witchever one does not change rpm is the bad injector
There's nothing wrong with driving on wide tires in the rain. As long as the tires have sufficient tread and are not rated for extreme performance (aka track use), and have a decent wet weather traction rating, you'll be fine. Your Lincoln will have tires that are fine for rain. 235-section tires are by no means a wide tire. Chances are you had insufficient tread depth, hit deep standing water, were traveling too fast for the amount of rain and/or water on the road, or any combination of those factors. I ran 285-section width tires on the rear of my 500hp Nissan Z car, and had no trouble with rain as long as the tread depth was sufficent. When the tire tread got low (as happened fairly often), then I really had to watch it, as the car would oversteer suddenly when I hit almost any amount of standing water. Believe me though - Lincoln makes no model (and never has in its entire history) that "is not supposed to be driven in the rain" - those kinds of warnings are exclusive to companies like Ferrari, whose cars are more or less race cars with license plates.
