Washed my r3 and preparing for storage for the winter. After drying it with a towel I decided to start it up and let it run for a while to dry up. I decide to take it off the bike stand and move it back to the parking spot, but it will not start for some reason.

Bike will turn off after pressing starter button, after a few seconds the bike will turn back on and turn off after pressing starter button.

No blown fuses. Battery seems ok? I put it on a battery tender and decided to give it a go today, same issues.
I am wondering if I got some water where there isn’t suppose to be and damaged some electrical component.
Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thank you.
Wow, that's impressively bad. First time seeing something like that.

Check your starter relay, try jumping the starter relay terminals, if it turns over that way, check the ECU next, look for damage or water and blow out and let any parts that have water in them dry out before attempting anything.
