I'm in the process of giving my bike a thorough cleaning. I have the "hood" off and everything's muddied up

10104


Is it kosher to just hit all of this with a [lower] pressure washer or am I just going to want to use my thumb over the end of a hose?

10105


Same with the relays and such under the seat.

Machine has to go to the dealer for warrantee repair on monday (just a little crate damage) and I wanna clean her up for the visit.

Thanks guys

It appears that machine was submerged. So if it was a good hosing would not hurt. But I would never do that. I might suggest removing all of those sensitive parts and doing them individually. Good luck!

Hasn't been submerged, no snorkels and intake is level with whats in the first picture. I don't think I've even been deep enough to have the exhaust tip under.. I do get real rowdy in the mud though! I was surprised to see how deep into the nooks and crannies the stuff gets lol.

Thank you for your input.

Took me 2 hours with a toothbrush and a flat head screwdriver as a scraper but I got it all wayyyyyy cleaner than whats pictured.

I'll take some pictures when I get the machine back tonight, I forgot to the other day when I was done.

ATVs are not boats or submarines :p

You guys try using compressed air after loosening up the dried mud? That is what I use but mine is generally a dust/dirt box, not coated in mud.

A compressor would of been perfect after scraping/brushing, I just wasn't around mine at the time.

Between the rides through Walnut creek on the property and my dogs incessant marking of the quads tires I consider 'Her' bathed, annointed, Ozark baptized...whatever.
