Appearance Care
Refer to Safery Precautions on page 97.
Frequent cleaning
and
polishing
will
keep your Honda looking
newer longer. Frequent cleaning also identifies you as an
owner who values his motorcycle. A clean motorcycle is also
easier to inspect and service.
GeDeraI ReoPmmendations

water
a mild. neutral detergent and water
a
mild
spray and
wipe
cleaner/polisher
a mild spray and rinse cleaner/degreaser and water
• Avoid products that contain harsh detergents or chemical
solvents that could damage the metal, paint, and plastic on
your motorcycle.
• If your motorcycle is still wann from recent operation, give
the engine and exhaust system time to cool off.
• Park in a shady area Washing your motorcycle in bright
sunlight may cause the finish to fade because water droplets
intensify the sun's brightness. Spotting is also more likely
because surface water can
dry
before you have time to wipe
it off.
• Clean your motorcycle regularly to protect sutface finishes.
• We recommend the use of a garden hose to wash your
motorcycle. High pressure washers (like those at
coin-operated car washes) can damage cenain
parts
of your
motorcycle.
The audio system is designed to be weatherproof unless it is
sprayed directly with a hose.
I
NOTICE
I
