Clean a TDub?
Might be a dumb question but how does everyone clean the mud off you bikes. I don't want to screw anything up with the power washer. Electrical or intakes

Ride it through a creek. Repeat as necessary.
i've often though about spraying the underside with some kind of teflon spray to try and keep dirt off, but... it's a dirt bike.
i do hose it off after real mud, figuring clogged fins can't help engine cooling.

Flat out or back out.
Wait for it to rain. Otherwise I just use my water bottle and a towel to clean off the tag so I don't get a ticket. It's a dual sport and like a jeep it looks better muddy.
Forever grateful for all your help brother

1st John 1:9
If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.
For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.

Hotsy washer, carefully. I do not spray the headlight, handlebars, or hard on the right side cover. I do, however, spray up under the fender -- if the mud that's there didn't hurt anything, hot fresh water will not, either.
I honestly do not think a garden hose or pressure washer (NOT TOO CLOSE) can hurt an MX bike. Or, at least it shouldn't. After having my TW almost totally disassembled I saw that the wiring, when connected properly, is mostly waterproof. Yes, a TW held under water for any length of time would probably require some drying but I haven't damaged mine yet.
Mud dries and falls off eventually, I generally ignore it.
Only a fool would attempt it, and God help me, I am that fool!
