Ok, so here's the latest. I washed my bike on Tuesday (first time since the last problem) and on Wednesday it was running like crap. Similar problem to before with loss of power. Kind off like my power band just decided to up and leave. Previously, the problem was diagnosed as water in the carbies, although I was never sure how the water got there. Now it seems likely that the washing is the problem. I drained my remaining fuel today and replaced it and after a bunch of laps of my local park the bike is running better, but not perfectly. I stopped after I blasted by a cop doing just a tad over the speed limit Anyhow, is it likely that the remaining slugishness will it sort itself out over time (or after a long ride) or do I need to see a mechanic? Also, I don't hose anything on my bike except the front, lower side fairings and wheels (try to keep well away from anything vaguely electrical). So how is the water getting into my fuel?
