After a 4 year hiatus I am back in the saddle! I owned CBR's in the past with plastic fairings being my primary surface...so it was super easy to keep clean. Now I have a CB919 which is deemed a naked sprotbike. It has a few plastic fairings, but is mostly engine ( tough as nails looking, I love it ). Anyway, with my full-fairing bikes I literally cleaned it by hand with Honda Polish (this is before I knew the goodness of Meg's).
My question is, what procedure are you guys using for bikes with exposed engines? I feel odd just taking my hose to it and then scrubbing with a hand mit and gold class...is there anything I need to look out for with regards to the water? i was thinking the blower might come in handy here to dry all the nooks and crannies.
