WASH YOUR BIKE LIKE A PRO
With Yoshimura Suzuki’s Lee McCollum
Before any water touches the bike, Lee removes the seat and
dirty air filter. He then installs an air filter cover and plugs in
the tip of the exhaust to ensure a watertight seal.
Use a pressure washer, going over the entire bike to get off
any dirt and unwanted debris, including inside the airbox now
that it is properly sealed up. This is a good time to look for
possible broken or missing parts.
Lean the bike over on a stand (as shown). This makes it easier
to remove dirt completely from underneath the fenders, bottom of the forks, rear suspension linkage and the frame.
Place the bike upright on the stand once again and spray the
entire bike with soap, such as Motul Moto Wash, Simple Green
or Slick products to help clean dirty areas. Lee then uses a
soft bristle brush to reach all nooks and crannies, along with
any trouble areas with stubborn stains or debris.
