washed it and now it won't start
First warm weekend in a long time so finally got to wash winter dirt off the bike (02-DL1000). I guess I messed up somewhere, maybe got some water into someplace it should not be, because I went out this morning to go to work and the bike will not start.
It turned on OK, went throught the normal POST, but when I hit the starter there was a click from the right side just behind and under the battery, and all power went out. I looked at all the fuses, they're fine. Turning the key on and off does nothing, except that it recovers after a few minutes and will turn on again.
Before I started taking things apart, I figured I would ask and see if anyone had seen this type of behavior before.
