When this happened where you at the same gear , same speed
ie an identical situation during all 3 times that this happened ?
At what RPMS does the bike idle ? may be its too low

LOL............ Could be.

Just depends on where you spray the water, and how high pressure....etc.

Some guys hose their bike all the time, with no issues.

But, that's a good possibility.

dirty air filter. Although I think that would make it run bad all the time.

What maintenance has been done to the bike? Have you done anything to the bike recently; take stuff off?

It's not going to be a problem with contaminated fuel or a dirty air filter. You would have problems all the time, just just randomly over the past 3 weeks.

Check that the ground connections on the batter and frame are tight and that the kickstand switch is firmly plugged in. Might not be a bad idea to go over the entire bike and perform routine maintenance that should have been done.

When the bike is warmed up what does it idle at ?
optimum is usually around 1500 RPMS

.

We have had numerous customers come in with electical problems from water getting into places it's not supposed to be from washing their bike.

So, wouldn't rule it out so fast.

But, that's just our opinion.

Trying checking it out yourself before you take it to a shop. If its a little thing they will probably tell you its something more of what it is.

Just like Demented said look around and check for the conection in the battery and the kickstand switch.
