    Default How often do you wash under the TRIKE body??

    During the season, I'm not only an oilchangeOHLIC BUT I also love a nice clean bike..

    I love to wash ~n~ wax it, on a regular basic.

    I put a wheel block in front of my front wheel, and jack up the rear end of my TRIKE, and using a long handled "SOAPY" brush, I wash underneath it as well..........Than spray clean with the hose!

    Why is it that a clean ~n~ wax'd bike always seem(s) to run much better???

    I guess I'm different I have never washed under my trike, I do put it on my lift from time to time and inspect underneath for anything out of the ordinary. It is on the lift now waiting for me to change the oil and do an inspection and while I have it up I'll probably clean the wheels

    I don't have a lift or use blocks but I will run the hose underneath when it gets washed.

    I thoroughly enjoy cleaning the trike. If I can get to it, I clean it. Like they always say, take care of your equipment and it'll take of you. And no, it doesn't just sit in the garage and look purty.

    Yep. Sure do. I pull rear tires off then spray all of it with a cleaner from Chemical Guys & rinse. My 08' has new RS kit under it. Decided to keep it looking as new as possible. I'm anal also when it comes to maintaining & cleaning

    If you lend someone $20 and never see that person again, it was probably worth it.

    Woody, what lift do you use so you can inspect underneath?

    Frank,

    I made a lift that will lift the TRIKE up 8 inches, (so working underneath it, is much easier)
