Cleaning of the Exhaust System

All parts of the exhaust system of your
motorcycle must be cleaned regularly to
avoid a deterioration of its appearance.
These instructions can be applied to chrome,
brushed stainless steel and carbon fiber
components alike.
Note:
The exhaust system must be cool
before washing to prevent water
spotting.

Washing

Prepare a mixture of cold water and mild
automotive cleaner. Do not use a highly
alkaline
soap
as
commonly
commercial car washes because it leaves a
residue.
Wash the exhaust system with a soft cloth. Do
not use an abrasive scouring pad or steel
wool. They will damage the finish.
Rinse the exhaust system thoroughly.
Ensure no soap or water enters the exhausts.
Maintenance and Adjustment

Drying

Dry the exhaust system as far as possible with
a soft cloth. Do not run the engine to dry the
system or spotting will occur.

Protecting

When the exhaust system is dry, rub
'Motorex 645 Clean and Protect' into the
surface.
The use of products containing silicone will
cause discoloration of the chrome and
must not be used. Similarly, the use of
abrasive cleaners will damage the system
found
at
and must not be used.
It is recommended that regular protection be
applied to the system as this will both protect
and enhance the system's appearance.
