After wash, bike can't start

I would like to ask whoever using Suzuki GSX-R1000 K7 2007. I washed my bike. After washing the bike suddenly it sounds so different. I leave it for a moment, and i on it back, still the same. So i check. I thought it's the battery. So i've change the old battery to the new battery. Before i change the battery, it shows "CHEC". So thats why i change the battery. After changing, it's still the same. But now my bike totally cannot on. Anyone help about this?

Re: After wash, bike can't start

Did you wash it by a water hose or pressure washer ? If so you likely need to let the water dry . I hope you didn't spray inside the intake tubes.

Re: After wash, bike can't start

Could be your ECU is not being recognized, kill switch got water in it, etc.

We need more details. Maybe a video of what it's doing. Also, go in the Introduction section and introduce yourself.

Re: After wash, bike can't start

Actually i took the water from the bucket. And i throw it at the motorbike. But then now my bike cant start totally cant start. Inside the intake tubes? What do you mean? I just used this bike only a year. Usually i wash, it did not become to this worse. But this time totally cannot start. My bike can on. But cannot start. Theres a sound but cannot start totally. What problem could that be?

If you've got an air line blow out water from around switches and fuse box I think water has got in somewhere

Re: After wash, bike can't start

"my bike cant start totally cant start...But now my bike totally cannot on."

Does it crank? If not, can you hear the starter solenoid click? Off hand, it sounds like either the ignition or STOP switches are messed up from the water. But it could also be associated with the interlock circuit or the clutch switch.

With the bike turned on (ignition and STOP switches), measure the voltage at the O/W lead at the dealer mode connector under the seat (O/G for an immobilizer equipped bike). It should be 12V. The ECM isn't getting power without it.

And this boys and girls is why we dont throw buckets of water on motorcycles...


@BillV He questioned what an intake tube was in prior posts. Not to discredit OP, but your post might be a little too in depth.

You might want to check your fuses. Last year I washed my bike and it wouldn't start afterwards. It turned out one of the 10A fuses had gone. I don't know if it was the cause of the fuse blowing, but I noticed water had come into the fuse box.

Re: After wash, bike can't start

Based on my experience, take a look at your signal relay. This is a common and yet overlooked issue among all big sport bikes. It is located slightly above the left sprocket cover. Water can get in easily during strong washing. Remove that and take a look. Replace the signal relay and design a cover to protect it in future. When the signal relay malfunction, your bike won't start at all. Hope this helps.

Re: After wash, bike can't start

Since you mentioned in the past washing, it doesn't happen like this. The only thing I could think is definitely Signal relay. You might want to try this.
