Loss of power after wash

Today I washed the motorcycle for the first time and sad to say I'm sure I did something wrong. :oops: I used higher pressure then I should have I assume was mostly the problem. After I washed it my bike is at most at half the power it was at before the wash. At first when I rode it, it seemed to cut the power on then off but now it is stuck in low power mode. Please any help will be greatly appreciated.

Each of the 4 bowls on the carbs have a screw them. With the bike turned off open these to drain the fuel from them. Check each as they are draining to see if any water is any one of them, if there is this may solve your problem. For drying out the bike faster (you may have caused a short by using a pressure washer) use a leaf blower.
Good luck

It almost sounds like you got your plug wires good and soaked. Hopefully after they have a chance to dry out all be well. If you want to spped up the proces I suggest and extension cord and a blow dryer.

Motorcycle power loss

The power wash could have resulted in water getting in around the spark plugs. The plugs are recessed in the head(s) and make a perfect pooling environment. Try blowing the water around the plugs and boots out with some compressed air.

Trying to install timer on Maytag coin-op washer. Did something wrong It filled with water and then stopped

Check voltage supply to the timer, make sure power is still supplying
the timer motor when the water shuts off, at which time if the timer motor is powered will close the next set of contacts and start the wash
cycle. Make sure you have the correct timer.
Also check the safety switch for the lid, if the lid does not close that switch or if its bad, the wash cycle will not start.

My dishwasher is seeming to stay on the wash cycle. How long is a normal wash cycle?

Dishwashers today use a lot less water and energy to do this they filter the water like crazy this makes the wash times go way up, the motor used today uses only a little power so a long cycle does not cost much.

They average wash time for a new machine is 90 - 120 minutes. Some high efficiency units can run 4 hours per cycle.

Washing machine wont spin

Your machine may not be receiving adequate voltage to start. Make sure your machine is plugged in. Also, check the circuit breaker panel to make sure all the circuit breakers are in the correct positions. Or check to make sure no fuses in the fuse panel are blown. Try plugging something else into the same outlet. If it won't work either, then there is likely something wrong with the power outlet. Any of these could be the reason power is not getting to your machine. Also, refrain from using an extension cord to plug your machine in.
