let it dry, and never wash your bike again. Go riding when it rains, or ride through a water crossing to shed road debris. :lol: j/k. let it dry out. it should be ok, but there's no point in killing yourself by constantly kicking it over trying to get it started.
try bump starting it. I didn't know it was e-start, so my first post that everything would be fine may now be entirely false. dig into the electronics and make sure you didn't drown anything. If the bike will bump-start, it's something with the startin circuit, if you can't even bump it, you've got to make sure you didn't get water inside the engine(through the exhaust) and make sure your ignition isn't soaked, either.
I know this may sound insulting but you did plug the exhaust with something before you washed it right? Better question, do you hear a clicking sound when you try to start it?
I was going to suggest turning the gas off and tipping the bike over to reset the carb, but that definately sounds electrical unless you somehow managed to actually fill the cylinder with water and the starter just can't budge it. .....oh and this is post 500 for me maybe that's lucky
yeh i plugged it and theres no way i got water in there. ive actually lost the little square nut thing to hold the wire on the battery so i gtg see if i can get one from the dealer. a friend of mine told me i can jumpstart it off a car?
i might take the battery to the dealer and get em to charge it for 10 mins or so...
sirr1 is right, charge batt then take plug out and check for spark. being a 2007 i would hope the plug cap is not bad but who knows.
second if you do ever decide to use ur car always make sure car is off never running, you risk burning up electrical parts.
yep what smrscott said. I will bet this is your problem. shut the fuel off. take the 17mm drain the bowl. turn fuel back on and raisehell. it did this on my crf450 the firstweek I had it. took me a couple hours to figure it out. haha let us know how it goes
hahahahahah. charged up the battery and it just started up. called the stealership and one of them remembered not charging my battery properly a few months age so all theyre fault.. i have apologised to my xr for thinking it couldnt withstand a bit of water
