Hi all, I’m new to the forum and I’d like to know if any one has any experience with a similar starting problem on a 2008 CBR1000RR? The bike started fine but after I washed it and tried starting, it gave a loud “clunk” sound and wouldn’t start again. It’s swings for a bit the gives the clunk sound again.
Any ideas what the issue could be, I really don’t have $$$ to send away for diagnostics.

Take a video with sound and share. I am thinking it’s your battery/wires that got water from the wash, not sure about the sound unless we hear it.

I'm guessing the starter got wet and caused some corrosion that's making it harder for starter gear to engage and disengage. If it's similar to a chinese 4 wheeler starter I rebuilt, it has some grease in it and brushes that can be affected by water.
