General cleaning

To preserve the original shine on metal surfaces and paintwork,
wash and clean your motorcycle at regular intervals depending
on the type of use and according to the particular road
conditions. Use specific products, where possible
biodegradable. Avoid aggressive detergents or solvents.
Do not wash your motorcycle immediately after use,
as marks can form due to evaporation of the water on 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 the front fork, wheel hub assembly, electrical system,
front fork seals, air inlets or exhaust silencers, with
consequent loss of safety.
If parts of the engine are especially dirty or greasy, use a
degreasing agent, avoiding contact with transmission
components (chain, front and rear sprockets, etc.). Rinse
with warm water and dry all surfaces with chamois leather.
There may be loss of braking efficiency immediately
after washing the motorcycle. Never grease or lubricate
the brake discs. This will cause loss of braking efficiency.
Clean the discs with an oil-free solvent.
