Be sure the engine and exhaust are
cool before washing.
When washing the vehicle, always
use a mild neutral detergent and wa-
ter.
Avoid applying all harsh chemi-
cals, solvents, degreaser, o il re-
mover, electrical contact cleaner,
and h ousehold cleaning products
such as ammonia-based window
cleaners. They will damage or de-
teriorate painted parts, plastic parts,
rubber parts and other synthetic
parts including covers and headlight
lens.
Avoid applying degreaser to seals,
brake pads, and tires.
Gasoline, brake fluid, and coolant
will damage the finish of painted and
plastic surfaces: wash them off im-
mediately.
Avoid wire brushes, steel wool, and
all other abrasive pads or brushes.
Take care when washing the head-
light lens and other plastic parts as
they can easily be scratched.

roads are salted or near the ocean,
immediately wash your vehicle with
c
old water. Do not use warm water

tion of the s alt. After drying, apply
a corrosion protection spray on all
metal and chrome surfaces to pre-
vent corrosion.
Condensation may form on the inside
of the headlight lens after riding in
the rain, washing the vehicle or hu-
mid weather. To remove the mois-
ture, start the engine and turn on the
headlight. Gradually the condensa-
tion on the inside of the lens will clear
off.
