MOTORCYCLE CARE AND STORAGE
ve any marks. If the windshield
is scratched, use a quality
plastic polishing compound
after washing.
After normal use
Remove dirt with warm water, a mild
detergent, and a soft, clean sponge,
and then rinse thoroughly with clean
water. Use a toothbrush or bottle-
brush for hard-to-reach areas. Stub-
born dirt and insects will come off
more easily if the area is covered with
a wet cloth for a few minutes before
cleaning.
After riding in the rain, near the sea or
on salt-sprayed roads
Since sea salt or salt sprayed on
7
roads during winter are extremely
corrosive in combination with water,
carry out the following steps after
each ride in the rain, near the sea or
on salt-sprayed roads.
NOTE:
Salt sprayed on roads in the winter
may remain well into spring.
1. Clean the motorcycle with cold
water and a mild detergent, after
the engine has cooled down.
CAUTION
Do not use warm water since it
increases the corrosive action of
the salt.
2. Apply a corrosion protection
spray on all metal, including
chrome- and nickel-plated, surfa-
ces to prevent corrosion.
After cleaning
1. Dry the motorcycle with a cha-
mois or an absorbing cloth.
2. Immediately dry the drive chain
and lubricate it to prevent it from
rusting.
3. Use a chrome polish to shine
chrome, aluminum and stainless-
steel parts, including the exhaust
system. (Even the thermally indu-
ced discoloring of stainless-steel
exhaust systems can be removed
through polishing.)

4. To prevent corrosion, it is recom-
mended to apply a corrosion pro-
tection spray on all metal, inclu-

ding chrome- and nickel-plated,
surfaces.
5. Use spray oil as a universal clea-
ner to remove any remaining dirt.
6. Touch up minor paint damage
caused by stones, etc.
7. Wax all painted surfaces.
8. Let the motorcycle dry comple-
tely before storing or covering it.
s WARNING
s
Make sure that there is no oil or
wax on the brakes or tires. If
necessary, clean the brake
discs and brake linings with a
regular brake disc cleaner or
acetone, and wash the tires
with warm water and a mild
detergent.
Before operating the motorcy-
cle test its braking performan-
ce and cornering behavior.
