How to keep clean new white boots


Desert-Racer74

Hi there riders, this is my first guide of how to keep clean new white boots. Personally i love white boots, looks great and is a little less heat on your feet, but they are very dirty specialty if you ride in desert of mud trails, clean the white boots are hard and more yet if you what to take off that marks from oil, branch or yellow marks from heat. Well saying that this is a guide to clean up all that marks, using my brand new Alpinestars Tech 7 Patriot.

 

(NOTE: THIS IS A SIMPLE GUIDE BASED ON MY EXPERIENCE, I NOT ASSUME ANY RESPONSIBILITY FOR THIS, I WILL TEACH YOU THE ONLY METHOD THAT I KNOW AND THAT WORKS FOR ME)

You will need:

  • 1 sponge
  • 1 micro fiber towel
  • 2 sheet of sand papers, (220 IS THE MAX THAT YOU CAN USE ON THE BOOTS, ANY UP FROM THERE YOU WILL SCREW HIM)
  • 1 brush.


STEP 1:Use 1 liter of water and put some dish soap on it, make sure and enough soap for keep some lubrication.

STEP 2: In other 1 or 2 liters of water use again dish soap for clean up your boots, this step use the sponge for take off all the dirt and maybe some marks that are easy to clean, always keep your boot in your arm poting down the area where your leg comes in, this prevents that the water fall inside of the boot.

STEP 3: Take off all the soap with clean water.

STEP 4: At this point you will see all the hard marks, and depend how deep it is or how hard to sand it is you will use your sand paper, maybe you can sand paper it with 600 or less.

STEP 5: To take off the marks, get the sand paper with the soapy water and with your 2 middle fingers put pressure on the sand paper and begin to moving in one direction, NEVER ON CIRCLES, always keep the sand paper lube with water for avoid any scratch beyond the area that you are cleaning.

STEP 6: Avoid any surface with gloss finish, usually this areas the scratch are rare or the gloss areas on the boots are minimum

STEP 7: After you finish with all the hard marks, i recommend give another clean with the sponge to get a better finish

STEP 8: When you finish with the final wash, take your micro fiber towel and dry the boot in any area possible, after you finish the dry, let the boot dry by himself on the shadow, NEVER ON THE SUN, leave it on the sun damage your colors.

And you are done, PLEASE PEOPLE AND AGAIN, this works for me, and i wanna share with you guys, is not an attempt of trolling or some bullshit, if is work for you, please let me know, hope this can help a lot of people out there, be safe and braaaap!

      So I am writing this from Casablanca having made my way across the US.  I did the JD jet kit mod prior to leaving and on the first day I layed the bike down (not crashed, literally layed it on its side), and when I stood it back up it was missing at low speed.  I messed with it throughout the US but mostly I just had to rev it a bit higher if I was at a signal or stop.  When I got to Maine I had a 3 day break and was guessing it was a clogged primary but decided to replace the fuel screw with a Klientech I had with me.  However when I went to remove the old factory fuel screw I could not get the screwdriver to bite the flat head screw.  After messing with it and not feeling a notch I realized that when I layed the bike over 10 days prior the screw probably fell out!   Sure enough the Klientech screwed right in and the bike idled perfectly.  News flash: the bike will run with the fuel screw completley removed, but if you do the JD mod, for SURe do the fuel screw at the same time, its a real PIA to work on in an assembled carb (IMHO). 
      Another big problem was that the TCX Drifter boots I had were seriously defective.  I got a cobbler to look at them in St. Louis and he agreed.  Worse they were absolutely not waterproof.  I drive through 2 all day rains and in both cases the top of the shoes leaked.  The very good guys at Revzilla kindly issues me a refund on the shoes, and I picked up a pair of Forma boots in Casablanca.
      The Olympia jacket and pants that I got were in fact waterproof.  However they retain a lot of water so the things get heavy.  I solved that by simply using Frogg Toggs over jacket and pants for the next all day drive through rain and was completely warm and dry up in the Buffalo and Mass areas.
      Finally I tapped into a 12v line in the headlight area to add a USB connector.  No bueno.  I got12 volts but the amperage from that line is so low that it will not power a go pro.  Hooking that up directly to the battery here in Casablanca.
      The bike is a dream, it handled very well in very high winds through the desert and once I had my first all day rain under my belt I had no control issues whatsoever.   With the smaller 41 gear on the back I was able to cruise all day at 70-75 and there was still plenty left to pass the occasional slower traffic (big rigs mostly).  Be advised 70MPH on the 70 or 40 will have you being passed by most traffic.
      One other thing.... I added the IMS tank which was a major pain.  The oil fill cap/gauge will not cleanly screw in and out with that tank on a 2018 DRZ.  I stripped mine and now use a screwdriver to slightly pry back he gas tank when checking or adding oil.  I got a new fuel gauge in Albany NY I believe, some great guys in "Seymores Motorized Sports" also helped my out a lot with cold weather gear.
      One other item, I got in the habit of running the big until it ran out of gas then switching to reserve (being careful to only do that in areas of little or no traffic).  One one stop I forgot to move it back to normal from reserve and the next time I ran out of gas, I was really out of gas.   I was stuck on the side of the road outside of Buffalo NY.  I then remembered that a post here indicated that the IMS gas tank retains some fuel on the right side even when the reserve is completely gone.  I laid the bike over on its left side and sure enough gas from the right side (I theorize 1/3 of a gallon) move to the left and I was able to make it on in to a station.
      Them's the facts!  Obviously I'm not the smartest guy on the planet.

      Do you guys know of any walk-in store in NYC that sells dirt bike gear? Such as helmets, boots and etc.
      Any store better than the other?
      Thanks in advance.
      sincerly,
      Einar Þ

      I am tired of have wet feet from just hitting puddles.  Over the years I've used mainly Alpinestars and most recently Forma.  Nothing I've ever owned did a good job of keeping my feet dry.
      Shopping I see Sidi and Forma offering adventure boots that are membrane lined to prevent water from getting in.  However the 3 buckle adventure boots are lower end boots in the sub $300 category and the look soft in terms of protection.
      Are you satisfied with the water resistance of your boot?  IF so, what do you have?

      I have a hole worn in my new Alpinestars Tech 8 boots on the right boot, left inside. The only thing I can figure out is that the brake lever/footpeg is rubbing on it. Anybody else have this problem with this bike or is it just me? Think Alpinestars will stand behind their boot?
