find someone who has a front loading machine and wash on cold on delicate cycle - I wash my First Gear like that. Hang dry.

Take out armor padding before washing.

If your helmet padding is removable you can clean it with a soft rag and some woolite. Just don't soak it, and make sure to let it air dry.

Leather can be wiped down with a damp rag and then conditioned with saddle soap etc., just go easy with the stuff.

machine washing a leather jacket with laundry detergent removes the natural oils in the leather and causes the leather to dry out and crack - not recommended.

Wash the mesh like everyone else said. I would use Woolite or a similar product that is not harsh....I use that even on my cloth top on the Z4.

I am a ex-dry cleaner by trade years ago....don't take mesh to a dry cleaner because they will clean it the same way you should at home and charge you mo $$$. They must clean accordingly to the tag in the jacket or they will be at fault if fading or anything wrong should occur..... Take out pads, *turn inside out, cold wash, and air dry! That's all!
