That help? Occam's razor would dictate that it was the water. However, since oil pressure is so critical it is better to be safe than sorry.

OP glad it was a the connections getting wet.

I also believe ai am okay but I will err on the side of caution in light of your earlier post.

I know its just a "gixxer" but it's my bike. I love her so much!! It is NOT a good feeling seeing that red oil light come on...
