I don't mind - it's an easy clean, just take it to the local Texaco jet wash and for £2.50 and 10mins of my time, I have a nice clean bike :)


I washed it by hand once. Never again.

I could walk to hell faster than it takes me to hand wash it :lol: :lol: :lol:


Make no mistake, I'm a rider - not a wash & admirer :wink:

I clean mine every 2 weeks.


Wheel bike out onto the center stand. de-crap the chain and re-lube it. tighten the chain if needed. check fluid levels. Spray with water. Spray over some muc-off. come back 5 mins and spray with water. Then dry with microfibre cloth. Put chrome polish (on the chrome duh) leave it about 10-15minutes and wipe it off. THen a little ACF-50 on the engine and some other metal parts. Good to go!


Whole process takes maybe an hour? I don't mind to much i like to know my bike looks nice and is in a good condition ^^


I'm sure that will change soon =D

The reason why there's so much mud on the back is because I took away the huge ugly number plate in exchange for a tidy but illegal tiny one :)
