Question about 1979 Honda GL 1000 (K3)
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.

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.
