How do you wash your WR

I then grab the simple green and hit the stuborn areas (chain lube overspray etc) with a small scrubbing brush. Final spray over with the pressure washer. I then hit the engine and chain and joints with WD-40 and go over all the plastics with armorall.
Fire the bike up and ride around the block to warm up the wheel bearings and get rid of the water.
Due to my use of the pressure washer I always pull the axels out after every ride and grease them up as well as packing under the dusct seal on the wheel bearing with grease. Never had an issue yet, although you need to check the headstem bearing when you use a pressure washer. Mine was a bit rusty after 12 months of use last time I checked.

I'm amazed on some guys that provide pics of thier bikes and all I could see is the dirt and grime build up that they just wont spend the extra time to clean off.

I also like to give my bike a good rubdown with 303 Aerospace Protectant after. It is SPF 40 sunscreen for your toys.

simple green...hands down the safest for everything.spray on...crack open a cold one.....spray off and enjoy
simple green is the way to go, takes off the "red" mud as well.
