I have a 2013 Cross Country suede nuclear sunset. After I wash the bike, the NAV engages and cuts the stereo. I do not have navigation. And surges for a couple of hours after. Thoughts? I live 164 miles from the closest dealer.

Either take it to dealer and tell him or start pulling all your wire connectors and give them a light layer of dielectric grease to prevent water getting in. Even us the grease on turn signal bulbs.

I have owned this bike for 6 years and I have taken a hose/soap/water to the bike 4 times since I owned it.

That said, my bike is ALWAYS this clean. Back of the rotors, brake calipers... looking like new... no water hose and I don't spend a lot of time on it.



Seriuosly... it's not a car.

You guys don't live on a dirt road in GA.
I was born in Columbus and grew up in Macon when there were more red clay roads in Bibb County than paved. I now live in a county in NC that has 5 RED LIGHTS! YES-- 5 RED LIGHTS IN THE COUNTY OF GREENE, NC. Look it up! Population of 15,000. I list eastern NC because nobody knows Snow Hill. I know about dirt, red clay and rural stuff. You can clean a bike without a waterfall. :Dcheers

BTW-- still have family in Cochran, Dawson and Canton.:) Ride safe.thumb up

Let me see if I can add something else to this subject and not sound like a jerk this time.:eek: We all get caught in the rain and our bikes do need water washing at times. Water will not make our Vics melt. However, something I read in in my Harley manual a while back makes a lot of sense. High pressure washing should never be used. Even the nozzle on a garden hose is too much as it forces water into cracks and open areas. A trickle of water with little or no pressure will wash off the same amount of suds a steam jenny will. It will actually do a better job of washing off the detergent. Just be patient. Even a home pressure washer will hurt the paint if you are not careful.
