Well... I just went to fire speedy up and run her around back to put in the garage.... and she wont start!

At first I turned the key to on and NOTHING lit gauge cluster or head lights. I just pushed her about a block to get her in the garage and now when i flip the key to on.... the headlights come on but nothing else. I Tried starting her up.... but no go either.

I was pretty carful with what I sprayed with water. I only got the gauge cluster a little wet and everythign under the seat is still dry.

I did give the engine a good spray down though.

Any insight??? Im sure this has happened to someone before... I never would of imagined the bike would be so finiky it wouldnt start if it got a little wet. :( :( :(
