Leather, Vinyl, and Rubber
If your motorcycle has leather acces-
sories, special care must be taken.
Use a leather cleaner/treatment to
clean and care for leather accessories.
Washing leather parts with detergent
and water will damage them, shorten-
ing their life.
Vinyl parts should be washed with
the rest of the motorcycle, then treated
with a vinyl treatment.
The sidewalls of tires and other rub-
ber components should be treated with
a rubber protectant to help prolong
their useful life.
Rubber protectants can be slip-
pery and, if used on the tread
area, cause loss of traction re-
sulting in accident causing injury
or death. Do not apply rubber
protectant to any tread area.
