washing..........

I use car wash liquid, a big sponge and spray it off with the garden hose set on the mist setting. Dry the bike off with micro fibre towles. The wax I use is the Meguair's spray on or Rain X spray on wax. Of course the white wheels are a pain to keep clean. I always put the bike on the rear stand when I wash it............it makes the job easier. And I always hit the chain with some lube after the washing the bike. The whole wash&wax&lube job takes about 1/2 an hour or so. I have it down to a exact science!!! :thumbup:

Just hose that sucker down and scrub it up man. You aren't gonna hurt anything. Treat it right. And dry it. Hell, mine has exposed K&N filters...sometimes I forget to cover them and they get wet....a run down the road and a quick trip to the top of the tach will clean her out.

Hose her down, suds her up, dry, wax, ride. :arsenal

so you guys dont think there would be any problem wiyh going to a do it yourself car wash? I know keeping the power washer close to the bike would be a no no. if i kept my distance, like 7 feet from the bike, by then the jet spray is a much lighter mist. We aptartment guys dont have hose bibs. I really want to give it a good wash and wax. right now im looking for a good wax recomended for bikes, so this post is good help.
