Keeping clean

Two hours on damp roads! Clean when started. What's the answer? Protection available?

Give it a good clean using a jet wash (be careful to keep the spray away from wheel bearings etc) and dry off. When dry, coat the metal parts with ACF50 and a coat of polish on the plastic parts. You can also use Scottoiler protector spray (FS365?) but you have to apply that after every wash.

Garage
Buy a fender extender as well, 5mins to fix and keeps some of the road dirt from the radiator and lower front. eBay £15
Also, a heated dog dryer is a good investment to blast away the water left behind after washing. eBay £50 or £100+ for pretty much the same thing but for a bike!
