    Cleaning water stains

    Hey guys,



    my 2017 got rained on a bit and unfortunately i dont have a garage so i just have a cheap cover over it. Im starting to see minor water stains on the seat, might also be pollen because it looks a little greenish. Ive wiped down w/ water and a rag but its definitely being stubborn.... any tips?


    Thanks!

    Be careful on what you use you don't want to shorten the life of the vinyl. I think riding them off is a good solution.

    Simple Green has worked for me. Don't use full strength....cut it with water 50/50.

    Don't use it for mouth wash! While it will leave your teeth very clean it does not have a mint flavor.

    Cover the seat, and wheels and tires with a generous layer of mud, or, if it is dry weather where you are, use dust. Get some on yourself also, and sit and rub it into the seat by riding around.
    The water spots will become insignificant.

    Try a shot of WD-40 in an inconspicuous spot under the seat pan and report back. I use WD for all sorts of projects and it works wonders on many of them with little ill effects.
