Radio troubles

Washed my bike the other day and now my radio is stuck in limbo with the seek feature permantly engaged. I am fairly sure I somehow got water into the LS bar control, the radio started out working correctly until I tilted the bars to get her out of the garage.. Any ideas on an easy fix, or will I have to take everything apart to dry it out. I have tried canned air with no success.

Re: Radio troubles

The handle bar switches are pretty well waterproofed. Usual water problems stem from the buttons on the controller leaking. May just be a hiccup in the software. Worth a try to undo the battery negative terminal for 20 minutes or so and see if that resets the radio brain.
