I decided long ago to never put a pressure washer to any bike. I wash my bikes with a garden hose and bucket of soapy water in the driveway.

I decided to dry off the V Strom 1000 with the electric garden leaf blower after washing it. Not bad that 320 Km wind, Cyclone 5 force.
Next day, traction control yellow light up. After a good 70 KM run it was still up. Next day, and thereafter, never came back, the moisture having presumably dried out.
Still use the blower, but a lot further away from the ECU module terminal blocks (which are far more accessible than the GSX-S1000).
