How does everyone clean their bikes?

1. rinse off the bulk and loose stuff.
2. Formula 88 diluted to 40%with water, spray it all over the bike top to bottom.
3. wait a minute after covering the bike
4. Rinse it all off. No rubbing needed ever.
5. Use a leaf blower to dry most of the water, towel dry the rest.
6. Finish 2000 wax after a couple rides, helps the mud slide off.
7. I coat the underside of my bike (plastics) w/ Mud Release and Silicone/WD-40 spray (everything else) before every ride.
8. I also use Silicone tire dressing foam on tires and plastic as well.


Is that too anal?

I actually like my bike. I would never treat it like a General Motors product. More like a Lincoln Continental .

Normally if you wait to or there days you can just beat on the fenders and most of it comes off in chunks.

I found this stuff at the dollar store the other day, made by Black Magik. It is Car Tintz. They used to make Tire Tintz but it was crap. This stuff is aerosol and you spray a fine multi-color gliter over the paint and trim. It looks pretty interesting, a tad ghetto though. It said it washes right off so I'm sure after the first hole Sunday it will all be gone. It was onlt a buck so I couldn't resist trying it out.

Where did you get those? My publicist was not suppossed to release those photos yet. I'll have to get on to him about that. My new project is some 26" dubs for my lawn mower.

We don't have a lot of time for cleaning the bikes so we usually just drive home real fast & hope the mud will fly off onto the cars behind us!!
J/K, we've used Greased Lightning, Simple Green & Formula 88. Seems like the Formula 88 works best.

I found some Rain-X sparay wax. You just spray it on to the quad wet or dry. Then wipe it down, no more effort than drying the bike. Probably very similar to your 2001 wax.

I put on my truck to see how it would do. It went on in minutes and looked good but, the water beading only lasted a couple days in the sun. But it does good on the bike.
