wolfc70 The tinfoil on the pipes works great!!! Bean Clean is the best all purpose bike cleaner/degreaser around. Great for removing bugs and tar.

[email protected] Of course you have to be patient when doing the cleaning.

use a piece of cardboard hold it behind the chain so it sheilds the tire.

Radiator picker

Since my Dad told me I need to take care that no more than 5% of the radiator 'fins' are crushed or bent or clogged, I went to work trying to clean my radiator.
Rushing water doesn't work very well, and wastes ALOT of water. Even the softest brush was too hard on those very tender soft-metal fins.
So, I found a 2 inch sewing needle that works perfectly!
Takes a bit of time to individually straighten the fins, and pick out the bug parts and pebbles and stems, but the grill looks beautiful in the end, and you know your engine is getting the air it needs!

Hope this helps somebody.....I will be looking to see if anybody has discovered a good way to keep the chain lube from getting all over the tire when I spray the chain every weekend. Seems I have tried every angle! Am I going to have to break down and actually COVER the tire with something?

Tooling around

I thought it might fun to ask if you have one sort of off-beat or unusual tool that you consider to be indispensable. Just on a whim here...I figured we might get some surprises and maybe some inspiration too or at least a couple of head slaps (why didn't I think of that!)
