Agreed. As Maxgs pointed out to me a few times, keeping a clean bike will enable a rider to spot malfunctions much earlier. This in turn can keep maintenance costs down, and of course, keeps the bike safer.

$80-110 vs it snapping and destroying your plastics and possibly your leg? Sounds like a pretty good price to me.
