If you’re a biker, you already know that cleaning a motorcycle is not half as fun as riding one, but it absolutely must be done on a regular basis. Bikes pick up a lot of road grime, and cleaning it off can be a challenge. Fortunately, Tub O’ Towels is here to help. Our heavy duty wipes are designed to take on even the toughest motorcycle cleaning challenges.
How to Clean a Motorcycle (The Hard Way)
Cleaning a motorcycle traditionally requires quite a few products, and you must be careful not to get a product designed for one component of the bike onto any of its other parts. Here are the steps:
- Remove all accessories that can’t get wet.
- Assemble a collection of different cleaning products including liquid detergent, WD-40, tire cleaner, engine cleaner, paint polish, metal polish, bug and tar remover, a toothbrush, steel wool, multiple sponges, and different rags of various abrasiveness.
- Use a pressure cleaner to remove caked-on grime, but keep the water stream far away from electronics, vinyl seats, brakes, and all instruments. If you pressure wash the chain, remember to re-lubricate it afterwards.
- Wash each part of the bike independently with its designated product. Be sure to use separate sponges and rags for each component to avoid cross-contamination. Rinse thoroughly, but use minimal water to avoid spotting or damage.
- Use a toothbrush to clean out all crevices.
- Clean out baked-on grease and grime from the exhaust pipes with steel wool.
- Carefully dry the entire bike with a microfiber cloth.
- Polish the paint and chrome to make it shine.
- Use a clean microfiber cloth to carefully go over every inch of the motorcycle, ensuring that you did not miss any spots.
- Wax the bike if desired.
- Re-lubricate all components as needed.
- Take a ride, slowly at first and then faster, to ensure that no water remains.
Cleaning a Motorcycle (The Easy Way)
Although the tried and true method above will eventually lead to a shiny, clean bike, it is extremely labor intensive. It also requires a huge investment in different cleaning products, many of which are caustic to the skin. Tub O’ Towels heavy duty wipes provide a simpler, more eco-friendly solution. They also include skin protectors such as Vitamin E, aloe, and lanolin.
- Grab a canister of heavy duty Tub O’ Towels wipes.
- Wipe down the motorcycle carefully, section by section, from the windshield to the chain.
- Use additional wipes as needed until the entire bike is clean and shiny.
- Polish and wax if desired.
