CARE OF PAINTWORK
Washing the motorcycle regularly will help
counteract the long-term effects of sub-
stances that damage the paint, especially if
your motorcycle is ridden in areas with high
air pollution or natural sources of dirt, such
as tree resin or pollen.
However, remove particularly aggressive
substances immediately; otherwise
changes in the paint or discoloration
may occur. These include spilled fuel, oil,
grease and brake fluid as well as bird
droppings. It is recommended to use
BMW Motorrad solvent cleaner and then
apply BMW Motorrad high gloss polish to
preserve the paint.
Contaminants on the paint surface are par-
ticularly easy to see after washing the vehi-
cle. Remove this type of didrt immediately
with cleaning benzene or ethyl alcohol on a
clean cloth or cotton ball. BMW Motorrad
recommends removing tar stains with BMW
tar remover. Then add a protective wax
coating to the paint at these locations.
