Clean the motorcycle

To preserve the finish of metal parts and
paintwork, wash and clean your motorcycle at regular
intervals, anyway according to the road conditions
you ride in. Use specific products only. Prefer
biodegradable products. Avoid aggressive
detergents or solvents.
Only use water and neutral soap to clean the Plexiglas
and the seat.
Periodically manually clean all aluminium
components. Use special detergents, suitable for
aluminium parts FREE of abrasives or caustic soda.
Do not use sponges with abrasive parts or steel
wool: only use soft cloths.
However, the warranty does not apply to motorcycles
whenever poor maintenance status is ascertained.
Do not wash your motorcycle right after use.
When the motorcycle is still hot, water drops will
evaporate faster and spot hot surfaces.
Never clean the motorcycle using hot or high-
pressure water jets.
Cleaning the motorcycle with a high pressure water
jet may lead to seizure or serious faults in forks,
wheel hubs, electric system, headlight (fogging), fork
seals, air inlets or exhaust silencers, with consequent
loss of compliance with the safety requirements.
Clean off stubborn dirt or exceeding grease from
engine parts using a degreasing agent. Be sure to
avoid contact with drive parts (chain, sprockets, etc.).
Rinse with warm water and dry all surfaces with
chamois leather.
Braking performance may be impaired
immediately after washing the motorcycle. Never
grease or lubricate the brake discs to avoid losing
braking power. Clean the discs with an oil-free
