Re: How to wash a Fireblade
I know it's been discussed a time or twenty in other places, but how do you clean your bike? *How many individual products do you use for specific cleaning chores, or do you never really wash your machine? *(Conq, I'm interested in hearing from you regarding your inclination not to wash with water.)
FWIW, my practices...
Honda Spray Cleaner/Wax for normal, day-in, day-out cleaning.
Bucket, hose, mild auto detergent and wash-mitt for once a month cleaning extravaganzas or after being caught in the rain. (I follow up with my leaf blower to strip the water off and the Honda spray for the final buff.)
Simple Green (sufficiently dilluted) for getting the gunk off kickstands, wheels and sprockets.
Kerosene for chain cleaning after the water/soap washings.
Man I get excited about a clean bike!
