Re: Precautions for washing a bike with open belts?

Don't do as a mate did & apply tyre-shine or anything to the belts, specially WD-40 as it can penetrate seals and ruin grease/oils etc and speed up the aging of the belts. Althoug I hear the sun-screen is good for the back non toothed part. Kinda works like a leather conditioner...
Running the bike to dry it & the belts out (and causing havoc in the process) is mandatory . - Chris
