Blown main fuse after wash
This isn't the first time I've had this problem, but it's the first time it's prevented me from going on a much anticipated ride.
I washed my bike this morning with my garden hose. No pressure washer was used, and the nozzle was not a concentrated stream. It was a thorough wash, I hit all the main spots including the engine, dash and steering column.
My bike started right up, but after a few miles of riding the dash looked like it went into an electronic seizure of lights and random tach readings, then shut off. The bike also shut off.
I pulled over and found that my main 30 amp fuse was blown. Whereas the problem was fixed by replacing the fuse in the past, this time it kept eating fuses. After about 4 fuses, I had the bike towed back to my garage where it decided it wasn't hungry for fuses anymore, and came back to life. Where ever the water had gotten, it must have dried up on the way home on top of the trailer.
Has anybody else has this kind of problem? Any ideas where I could start looking for the vulnerable wire harness? Or....how could I explain the problem to my dealer without them telling me it's my fault?
I could ignore the issue and wait a day after washing the bike to ride, but i don't want to risk getting stranded far away from home when it starts raining.
