When Wash Your Bike...YOU?

Recommended Posts

I just read a great article on washing you bike in the April 2014 Dirt Rider. Dr. Dirt did the article.

 

WHO OWNS & WHO USES A AIRBOX COVE WHILE CLEANING???

 

I want to purchase one but want one that people have positive reviews on. This is not something to cheap out on. I figured a no name on can not fit properly and allow water to enter.

 

Any other tips? I'm always worried about water entering the fuel area or compromising the  fuel tanks.

News to me...I just clean it out the hard way I guess. I try to not put my hose spray right up the pipe, nor near the other electric bits. Maybe I'll get one of those airbox covers.

I use an airbox cover (twin air) for washing and travel. It works very well for a thorough wash when you need to take off the seat and run the hose through the airbox. For basic hose downs when you don't plan on changing your filter, just take off the seat, wrap a plastic bag grocery bag around your filter, put the seat back on and spray her down. Just remember to take off the bag afterward
