570 runs bad after washing

Not every time but maybe 1 out of 5 times after washing my 570 the wheeler starts acting up. It’ll start and idle but when I give it gas it bogs down. Let it sit overnight and everything is fine. Pretty obvious I’m getting water in a place where water shouldn’t be. Any ideas? It worries me that I’m going to get stranded one of these days after hitting some heavy water or mud areas.

Yes!!!! I'd look the harness over for spots where the wires rubbed through. While doing that die-electric grease the connectors.

I'll go through it today and have a look. Honestly I'm not 100% sure what the heck I'm looking at though. As far as mechanics go I'm probably the last person you would want to look over your machine LOL. I'm good enough to change the fluids and grease the wheeler...maybe do a small mod here and there after that I'm pretty worthless.

I hate to do it but I may take it in and have it looked at.

It can be a bit overwhelming!!! Just try and pull as many plastics off as you feel comfortable doing. Then just look at the wire harness and wherever it looks like there could be a pinch point, sharp angle, or a spot where the wire harness is rubbing something. Then look at the harness in those areas and it'll be evident if there is damage. The loom and/or insulation will be worn. As you do this put something like a finger tip amount of die-electric grease on every connector you can get to.

Thanks for the info. I'll be digging into this tomorrow.

Check your air box too. The drain plug on my 2018 is such a loose fit water gets into the box at high speeds. Idles fine but bogs when accelerating. Sucks water from the bottom of the box into the filter when accelerating hard. I just learned to hit the water slower. Fix it someday.
Muddy water was easy to see coming up through the drain. Clean water will be harder to see. If your hitting that plug with hose pressure it’s possible. Doesn’t take much water in the air box to mess it up.
