Help!! Just washed my busa now it won't start!!

Alright, I just washed my busa and now it won't start. All of the electrical is working but the fuel pump won't prime and when I push the starter button it is just dead. Kinda wierd, i've washed my bike a bunch and never had this happen. Anyone ever had this happen to them and any advise on a fix would be much appreciated. Thanks

Same shit happend on my 07 gix K. find the fuse block and check the fuses. My issue wasnt that any of the fuses were blown but the block itself looked like someone tried to stuff an 8 ball of cocaine in it. It had a ton of corosion in it I'm guessing from keeping the bike too clean and washing it too much... I cleaned it out then put a lot of di-electric grease in their. Good luck!

....a wet alarm system can cause this as well.

Did you use a pressure washer?
