Tyres and jet wash

Post by ktkevt » Sat Jun 30, 2018 11:26 am

Ill be off to davebike for service on the 125 mode any suggestions for decent tyres Please.
It’s done 7000 miles so should I get the belt changed and coolant done as I’m there.My knees and back are knackered and it needs a clean ... I know I shouldn’t use a jet wash but it seems my last resort..... any ideas please wizards ... thanks

Do not jet wash the tyres. Bucket of water with some car shampoo in it and a brush with a long handle.And bobs your aunt Dave :? :roll:
But what happened to your other sign on ,If you PM Newtsalad he could sort it for you.
Long handle brush or plunge brush from Home Bargains ;) .

Thanks all done now I didn’t use jet wash and it looks clean at least (I do miss the chrome on the c90) but anyway needs must. Now I noticed a little bit of rust around the exhaust bracket and a little on the exhaust,so I’m asking the wizards can I put some “waxoyl under seal on affected areas(I have this leftover from doing the rear wheel arch on 90) I’m concerned that the heat from exhaust is too much ....or should I get black hammerite... will that cope with the heat....thanks all

BBQ paint ;) , hammerite is oil based and not high temperature.

Hammerite is horrible to paint. Horrible to clean brushes up afterwards. I hate the stuff...
