I've done much automotive and some motorcycle cleaning in my life but I haven't found a method I'm happy with for cleaning the cooling fins on our motors. At all costs I try to avoid using a hose and sponge/brush on my bike, so what I'm looking for is a good method for cleaning between the cooling fins without a hose & brush. So far I have only used a mini-California (static) duster but it wasn't thin enough to get all the way between the cooling fins. Let me know if you have a good method to get the dirt/dust out of there! :huh:

Yep, wheel brush and SG, and I use a leaf blower to dry it off.
I wash my bike twice a year, needs it or not. Course, no road salt out here.

What's a "wheel brush"?

I simply use a soft bristled dust pan brush and then to dry it out, I use the air compressor with a thin spray nozzle on the end to blow the water out, works a treat

I use "Mothers Detailer", spray it on and wipe it off with a cotton cloth. Takes a little time, but it does a good job.

I'm going to try the wheel brush for cleaning and the leaf blower to dry it off.
After it's dry I'll spritz it with some WD-40 and Shine & Go.
