  1. lol as stupid as i may be, considering ive never owned a motorbike (or a car), what parts can i get wet, is there anything i shouldnt? same goes for soaping up n stuff, anything that doesnt like it?

    how does one clean their bike lol.

    just dont wanna wreck my baby :p

  2. how wet does your bike get when you ride in the rain? :wink:

    just be careful of pressure washer on sparkplugs :cool:
  3. sweet :grin:

    now where's that toothbrush :LOL: :LOL:
  4. Lube chain alot more regularly when riding in rain.
  5. when it comes time to change your sparkies, make friggin sure there is no shit in the wells. cleaning the engine is a friggin prick too. your triple clamps will eventually corode if you leave it out doors. other than that, she'll be right. like phizdog said unless you like putting new chains on, cause the links will freeze if you dont lube her in the wet.
    best way to clean is mild detergent in warm soapy water, metho can work better on engine if that doesn't work. i like diluted (with petroleum spirits) brasso on the can.
