i had the same problem today. after hand washing the bike, it wouldn't start. i had the same issue once before after a heavy heavy rainstorm at work. i don't have any clues either.ive had problems before ,when i would wash my bike it wouldn't start, and have been looking for the problem. but i went to the biker rally in galveston yesterday, and on the way home i blew a fuse that shut down my headlights , gauges, and starter.
i replaced it and everything was fine. today, i washed it again ,and it wouldn't start until it dried. when it did, i took it for a spin (everthing was fine) but when i killed it my headlights and half of my side lights would not turn off. i had to disconnect the battery. any ideas anyone ........help please, i hate electrical problems
