'07 650 won't start after washing
I've looked through all the threads and can't seem to find this one so hopefully somebody can help. Today, I gently washed my bike. Then, it wouldn't start. Turn the key, all gauges do what they normally do and the system seems to 'check' fine. Everything seems normal, except it won't turn over at all when ignition button is pushed. Full voltage at all fuses and good contact and voltage at battery. Kill switch and kick stand switch seem to be working properly (near as I can tell). Put plyers across the solenoid contacts and it fires right up and runs great. I've seen reference to troubles after washing these bikes but can't seem to find specifics of what might be going on. I'm guessing that it could be a coincidence that I just washed it? Can anyone point me in the right direction? Any help greatly apprectiated.
