I used to clean my BSA at a car wash and suggested it to a friend. His motor was still too hot when he hit it with the spray and the contracting cylinder broke one of his pistons. So take your time and let things cool down 1st.

In the UK, car washes are a vital part of the Eastern European economy....
Just saying :)

As for Commando cleaning I can cast no stones at Dave.... A wipe with a rag without too much oil & grime, for heavy stuff used mineral spirits/same rags & maybe a brush.... It loves it and thrives in the light to medium layer of hydrocarbons... Perhaps a splash with the garden hose, but never a power washer which can penetrate into places water should never go.
I do however care for my lacquer paint differently.

S100 motorcycle cleaner. Spray it on, hose it off. Use an Airblaster. Takes about 10 minutes to clean a bike.

I haven't gotten to the cleaning stage yet. First step was to stop any dribbles. But I can always count on the more anal retentive here to make some comments. :rolleyes:

I know... Have picked up great tips in case I ever get the bug to clean it up for housebreaking. Mama would have a fit.

Good stuff, not cheap, but eliminates need to scrub. Just spray on and hose off. Available at most motorcycle dealers or online at Amazon or Ebay.
This is a lot easier than trying to dry off with towel. Also, gets moisture out to the hidden spots.
