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.
Thanks patric.
I use it on my fairings and wheels only,and i dont put too much water and too much presure. Lol.... u have my bike, so u tell me what it looks like. Lol...

If riding in the rain doent f* your bike up then a little bit of soup and water shouldn't ether. Lol

Pressure washers = BAD (when you are using them on motorcycles)
Like Patrick said, you can get soap and water in places you don't want it, like wheel bearings and elec connections.
It's not the soap or the water, it's the pressure. It can be done with great care but it is better to use S100 and a garden hose.
I like S100 because you spray it on, and rinse it off. Boom, bikes clean! Dry it with a towel and you're done.

I think yall getting the wrong idea... im not talking aboit pressure washer like the one they use to clean and wash walls or a presure washer that would rip off the paint of your bike. Im talking about a very light... so light that u can put yoir hands and nothing happents.

I gest when u said presure the first thing that comes in mind is presure whashing the off the walls.....lol

I give the engine a good cleaning by forcing water into the ram air intake and exhaust.



Seriously, the owner's manual tells you how to wash your bike and where to be careful about spraying water. If you use anything more than a water hose, you're risking getting water into a place where you don't want it.
