    how do you clean your dub

    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

    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.

    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.

    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.
