Dirt bikes can be a lot of fun, but they also need to be properly taken care of. Dirt and grime accumulate on your dirt bike with time and can wreak havoc on the engine, so you must get the dirt bike cleaned out at least twice a year. Here are some simple and easy steps for getting the job done!
Use A Pressure Washer
This is the fastest, easiest way to clean your dirt bike. If you have access to a pressure washer with enough psi to take off layers of paint, then this is probably the best way for you to go. Make sure to use a light duty one because if it is too powerful, it will damage your engine. Be careful not to use any soap with the pressure washer because this can cause problems as well. The biggest benefits of using a pressure washer are that it cleans off everything at once, and it is extremely fast.
Remove The Seat And Fenders
This will make your dirt bike easier to clean and better-looking once you are finished! All you have to do is take out a few screws, and you can take off the seat as well as both fenders. This will make it far easier to get all of the dirt and grime out from underneath them, where the pressure washer often cannot reach. You can even use a toothbrush or a small cleaning brush to get to all of the hard-to-reach places that you wouldn’t get to usually.
Wipe Down All The Dirt And Grime
To start getting your dirt bike clean, you should wipe down every inch of it with a wet rag or sponge. This way, you can remove any debris that may have collected on areas that your pressure washer could not reach. Look for dust, mud, and sand because if these are not cleaned out of certain areas such as crevices and around moving parts, they will cause problems later on such as engine malfunctions or premature wearing away of lubricant/grease on your dirt bike. After you wipe down your dirt bike, you can give it one last scrub-down with a cleaning solvent. This will remove all of the grime that the rag or sponge may have missed once the pressure washer turned them into bubbles or suds. Just soak them in some solvent for about 5 minutes and then wipe off any residue before it dries!
Give A Good Lubrication To All Moving Parts
Once you are finished cleaning your dirt bike, make sure to lubricate all moving parts with your preferred lubricant/lube. This is one of the most important steps because if you do not lubricate your dirt bike with at least a light coat, then the parts will start to rust and/or wear away after time. Make sure that you spray each of these parts according to its instruction manual so as not to damage it further!
With these simple and easy steps, getting your dirt bike clean will be a breeze! You can have your dirt bike looking more pristine than ever in no time by following this guide step-by-step. Just make sure not to use any heavy-duty chemicals, and your bike will be ready for the good weather!
