It's easier to keep it clean than to get it clean. The spray polish works great if your bike isn't very dirty.

I use a hand held bottle sprayer filled with soap water.. I only spray the body panels piece by piece and wipe them clean then do the wheels.. I have never washed my engine..

A little Windex and a few paper towels and lots of loving care...:thumbup:....then round it off with some good wax....yeppers. Happy bike then.

You won't hurt the bike spraying it with a hose. You could soak her head to toe and she'd be fine......otherwise, how the hell you sposed to ride in rain???:loco:

I use Windex on mine just cause mine don't see things like rain (if I can avoid it) so...

Since the wire harness uses weather-pac fittings, she is waterproof pretty much. Still, I'd cover the ECU with a towel. Then, buy some "S100." Cuts grease and all that good stuff. Spray that all over the bike [not in the sun] so it does not dry, meaning. You want it to chemically do its thing. After reading how long to keep it on the bike per bottle directions, wash it off with a garden hose. If you have access to an air compressor, blow dry it all off or use mom's vacuum cleaner on the blow side. Not as powerful, but it should dry the sensors off and whatnot.

could also use a blower for lawns even better than a compressor "no hose to follow u around" :thumbup:
