advice... skunk...

So left Birmingham earlier heading to shreveport then back to Houston, was riding on interstate 20 in Mississippi and low and behold I ran over a dead animal in the road. Dark so didn't see it til was on it. It was the famous "two toned with a fluid drive" AKA a SKUNK. So after finding a carwash, I sprayed the bike down, changed pants and boots (they got tossed in dumpster) BUT I CAN STILL SMELL THE KITTEN OF SATAN. Yes I know, some will laugh, I will too. But, Wtf do I use to get rid of this stench that won't eat paint and stuff? Tomatoes juice works on my dogs, but a bike? Any and all suggestions welcome, yes and smart comments too since I need a laugh.
Thanks in advance...

Vinegar. It's the only thing I know that will neutralize odors, but it IS acidic and may damage your paint. I would spray it on liberally - VERY liberally - everywhere you think the smell may have gotten, leave it sitting for at least an hour, then wash the bike again. You may have to do it more than once. When it rains you may smell the skunk odor again. It's the best I can offer.

Then everything will smell like vinegar...

saw this on wiki access.

Make up the following mixture and spray it on your car or bike where the smell seems to be. . If you get the mixture on all the skunk smell it reacts chemically to kill the smell. ( Works great on dogs and other animals that may have been sprayed.)

1 quart of 3 percent Peroxide
1/4 cup Baking Soda
1 tsp of liquid Soap

^^^This^^^ I prefer Dawn dishwashing liquid as it breaks down the oil in the skunk musk.

I think the viniger would be fine for the paint, but a little corissive on some of the metal parts

if you use it, I would rinse with a solution of baking soda to nutralize the acid
