a guy told me a good way to keep your machine clean is to spray wd-40 all over everything below the plastics. all the metal i guess you could say. anyone ever do this and does it work?

I guess you could, but seems like a waste. Besides I dunno how much I'd want to spray something flamable all over something that's going to get pretty hot, like the motor and exhaust. I know you should never ever put it on your plastics though.

i have done this before every ride on recommendation of a friend that also does it and it really helps with the clean up. It makes the mud just fall off and keeps it from sticking. it is great if you like cleaning yours up after every ride.

instead of wasting money on wd40 just buy cheap wal mart brand cooking spray it's like a buck a can and it does the same thing and it does really help with clean up

Pam or other cooking spray works much much better than wd-40

Yeah, I'm gonna get the butter flavored spray. My brute will smell like popcorn going down the trail!

Actually it smells like pancakes..LOL!!Seriously.A buddy of mine did it b4.

I use WD-40 on the frame and shocks.It keeps everything from rusting and makes it look good too.

Ask some of the guys that live on the Gulf down here that duck hunt how they keep there Shotguns from rusting after hunting salt marsh, Rem-Oil, 3N1, WD-40, etc. It's the same concept after a ride I always clean my bike up good and give the undercarriage a good coat of WD-40 it keeps it looking new and also helps when washing the mud off next time around. It does stink when you first start it up and it is burning off of the motor and exhaust though.

wd40 doesnt hurt the plastics at all by the way...

It won't hurt the plastics but anything silicon based will have a serious effect if you ever try to paint it such as wd-40 and nu finish for cars, if you put nu finish on a car most places will strip the paint entirely to repaint your car and if you put it on plastic its even harder to get off to try to paint it

I've used baby oil before and it worked pretty good.
