2007 1000rr rain flooded?

I was riding yesterday and got caught in a heavy thunderstorm, me and the bike got soaked. I pulled under a bridge for an hour and when i tried leaving it wasnt going anywhere. The electric turns on but it won't start or even crank over when i press the button. when I flip the kill switch I can hear the buzzing and all the Electric Works. The battery is good, I use it in my other bikes and starts right up; that's not the problem. Do I need a new starter? It seems like an electrical problem and it was running fine before I got rained on heavily. also both headlights are now out, they were working before the rain. could a fuse be the reason its not starting? bike was stored in garage for six months and just got it out last week, already put about 200 miles on it without a hiccup before this incident. please tell me im looking at an easy home repair, the last thing i want to do is take it in to get worked on, especially after pushing it for two miles in the rain yesterday.

check the 30 amp fuse on your starter solenoid. all electric will work the bike just wont turn over if its popped.

dunno where the fuse box is on an 07 under the seat would be my guess. the starter solenoid has it own fuse on top of it its not in the fuse box

Fuse box is behind the left fairing. There is a small place for two spare fuses if they havent been used up.

Re: 2007 1000rr rain flooded?

First- quit putting fuses in the 20amp fuse that keeps blowing... it is doing that for a reason....

Check and make sure all the water is out of vital places. You either have a bare wire touching metal, grounding out the circuit and popping the fuse, or water that is allowing it to ground out and pop the fuse. Either way, the more you stick a fuse in it the more you risk serious damage to your loom... Ohm out the terminal between the frame and each contact point, whichever reads very low to no resistance is the one grounded. Start chasing that wire until you find out why it is popping fuses/grounded.

Re: 2007 1000rr rain flooded?

ok so all fairings are off now. there isnt any water inside nor are there any wires obviously stripped. im looking at the harness and the tape seems to be held together solidly. how do i isolate where the problem is? i followed the fuse for headlights/ ignition and everything seems fine.

Re: 2007 1000rr rain flooded?

If the problem is water then i would get some electrical spray , CRC does one that dispels water. I would say if water is the issue its likely to be in a connection so would go around and unplug every connection and clean it one by one.
If that doesnt work it may be that you need to take it to a sparky as it might not be water related and just bad timing.
