Exclamation Help with cleaning, pics included this time :)

So i finally made it back home ( bellville ) and i wanted to say thanks again floyd i threw some lube on it, and it ran like a champ, the noise is still a little there but nothing that a new sprocket kit won't fix, ill get on that tuesdy. but with that annoying noise gone, i have another question, well two. The first one only floyd can answer as he rode it, but anyhoo, that ticking noise that's more than annoying, if this a yamaha thing? or does it mean im about due for a valve job? i know it says 26k intervels.. but it's awful loud to be just a normal tick, but maybe it sounds that way because i don't have aftermarket exhaust and can hear EVERYTHING. let me know what you think, and my OTHER question is, can i use that tire foam cleaner on the engine parts, like the block , frame ect, or maybe that stuff you use to clean the dashboard in your car? here are some pics to show what im talking about, thanks in advance

Im talking aside from soap and water, something that will kinda bring out the blacks, make the blacks blacker and also remove some of the gunk and dirt in those exteme hard to reach places like in the little bolt holes and what not.

i ride my bike all day everyday and anywhere.... with that said, i put a lot of dirt and that rain/road brings.

what i do every once in a while when things get a little toooooo dirty, i pressure wash my bike, i work at the dealership so we have a detail department that has a bunch of that i can use. (or take it to a car wash to spray it down)

1st i spray that stuff that the car wash places have to clean bugs/tires.. then i use the pressure washer to wash it down (not so close so it doesn't f*ck up your paint) then.... i do the most important thing to do so there is no water left on my bolts that can cause some rust from water seating there.. i use an air pressure hose to blow off all the water. after all that its done then i'll lube my chain and wipe the bike down with a towel. (once at month if i rode in the rain and it gets mud on it) other then that... just a wet town the whole week.

Now... about the bike's sound (ticking) that's normal on your bike, you hear it because it's stock, my friends bike (same bike you have) does it.
what you're hearing it's normal, that's what a bike's engine sound.

i took your bike around the parking lot and it felt smooth and very confy... i almost didn't wanted to come back

about your chain noise? it helps that you lubed it but over all the noise still be there. the orings are probably worn out. the last person that had it probably rode it in the rain and didn't maintained the way it should.

Thanks for all input guys real nice that you guys don't bash me like some of the other forums I've been on, basically talking down on me because I DON'T haven r1 or gsxr/r6 and consider my bike a girls bike. But anyways its nice to know I can ask even a stupid question and get a legit answer. I'll try the wd40 thing and do what bevo said. Again, thanks guys.

if you get one straight up answer then most of the people that replay would give you straight up answer... but if you get one bad one then this whole thread turns into a jack thread..

If you swing by I'll show you how to properly lube and adjust your chain and go over some other points to take care of, no charge.
Floyd, fwiw I don't recommend using a pressure washer on a bike. The high pressure and caustic soap winds up in places it shouldn't and can cause electrical and mechanical issues. Like the axle in the 954 I had to cut out with a torch the other day.
Washing your bike with soap and water is fine, I do mine all of the time, but stay away from pressure washers.
