Rear speakers quit after washing

Hi, new to the bike and forum. Wish someone would have warned me to never wash this spaceship, just use S100 on it. I get to take the tupperware off now to clean and reconnect connections. Should be a public service announcement to prospective owners.

Re: Rear speakers quit after washing

it will help if you fill in your location and year of LT, the radio amp quits and you lose speakers it seems to be common fault on older bikes, use the search feature to locate answers, also now that you have posted scroll down to the very bottom of the page and there will be links if some one else has posted a similar question. as you are new, Welcome to the zoo. Here is the maintenance video's link thanks to Kirk over there in Illinois. Link
There are connection plugs under the rear seat could be simple, Nah nothings ever simple...

I've probably washed mine 50 times and never had a problem. Did you use a pressure washer?

Re: Rear speakers quit after washing

Washing should not cause this. Easiest place to check is under the pillion seat center barrel connector feeds the speakers. Make sure it is clean and seated properly. There is another one up under the tupperware on the left side by the radio also a barrel connector. It sends the signal back aft from the radio.
