How do you detail a motorcycle?
Last Updated: 28th May, 2020
- DRENCH. When the bike is cool to the touch, gently hose off mud and grime.
- DEGREASE. Remove oily residue with a degreaser like Gunk; use brake cleaner for really nasty buildup.
- CLEAN THE CHAIN. Work a solvent-soaked rag along the chain, removing oil and debris while also straightening out any kinks.
- SOAP 'ER UP!

Just so, how much does it cost to detail a motorcycle?
Getting your bike professionally detailed can cost a bundle, from $200 all the way up to $600 for a complete job with the optional protectant package.
One may also ask, can you wash your motorcycle at a carwash? High pressure is really the biggest threat to washing a bike in a carwash, because it can cause damage to your bike's internals and exterior depending on the amount of pressure used. You also don't want to expose leather to water (for obvious reasons) without having a towel or chamois on hand.
Likewise, is it bad to wash a hot motorcycle?
Never wash a motorcycle while the engine is hot. It's ok to wash if it's cool enough that you can touch the engine without burning yourself, but you'd ideally clean it when the bike is completely cold.
Can you wash a motorcycle with a hose?
Rinse the bike with cool water. This will help loosen any dirt and rinse as much of it away as possible, making the cleaning process easier. Just make sure to use a gentle stream of water from a hose. High-pressure sprays can damage the finish, paint or other materials, and should be avoided.
