Washing Your Motorcycle: Water Resistant vs. Waterproof

Duration: 2:14

Whether it’s weather or washing, water can get into places we do not want them. Electricity and water do not mix well so keep this in mind when checking all your connectors that are in use or not.

Here’s a question we get more often than we would like to see:

Help! I washed my 2003 Fat Boy EFI with a power washer and it won’t start blew out all the electric connectors than it will start but running rough with black smoke even changed the plugs.

    When I wash the motorcycle,I use a leaf blower.. But, when I do this it has a sputtering effect???

    Bob, also worth mentioning is the need to dry out switch housings at the handlebars. Over timeWater can wreak havoc. I prefer the the Air Force brand Blaster to accomplish drying my entire bike.
