You have wet the ignition system , carefully use a hair dryer to dry it out and spray with WD40.

Indicating lights out of sync

The fix is a new Logic Board. They are expensive. I would set the wash and just leave it to do its thing.

I wonder why they named it after 'BMW'?

Start button not working

As much as it sounds bad, try spraying wd-40 in the start button with everything off, let it sit out in the sun for a few hours to let it soak in to the metal contacts under the switch and to dry out the wd-40. Then after say 4-5 hours, go out there and press the button a good few number of times say 100 pressing fast and hard a couple of times, that way if rust is on the contacts the wd should free some of the rust up and knock it loose off the contact.

Next time you go to wash bike put a plastic bag over the button to keep out the water and just wash around the area with a damp rag rather than soaking the whole area, should help to keep the button dry.

Worse case scenario is you can get a new/used button on ebay, replace and then start using a plastic bag to keep dry. those things are rough when the switches get wet on a bike.

Hope this helps.

Hi, I have yamaha yzf 125 r(2008) 2 days ago i washed my bike with water. After washing bike started normally as usually. But today when i wanted to start it, starter just trying to start the bike but...

Check your ignition components for condensation. If you wash the bike using water especially around the motor, you should promptly dry it thoroughly before starting it to avoid the possibility of condensation caused shorts in the ignition system. I personally use a leaf blower to dry mine and let it sit in the sun for a while to make sure it's dry. I think you will find condensation is your problem. Good luck and safe riding.

How often does the chain need lubricating

Touch your chain, feel it, does it feel super hot, does it feel sandy, does it make alot of noise, is it loose?
Riding conditions is the main factor for your chain.
Do you travel down alot of dirt roads? the worse the conditions the more frequent lubrication is required.
If your chain gets alot of dirt on it then you'll need to wash that off and then lubricate it.
A well maintained chain will also save on your sprokets.
I check mine once a week, sometimes its good and sometimes its dirty and needs washed and lubricated.
I use chain lube that doesn't fly off and get all over my bike. In a pinch any lube will due.

Washing machine stops working

I search in the internet on regards to the problems with the Whirpool Ultimate Care II and found out that many others had the same problem as I did. Some solved this issue replacing the switch, so i decided to do the same.
I opened the machine and saw that the switch was not working properly, it was not doing any contact, so whenever I open or closed the lid, nothing was happening. I did a house fixing, with some duck tape i was able to make the system work, and now the machine is washing everything again.
