    I have yet to use soap or water to clean mine. Lots of detail spray and rags and multiple coats of wax. If you do use soap and water you should not water down the tank or else you could end up with rust under your console. You should also either get one of the blowers deigned for blowing your bike dry or use an air compressor or something like that. Make sure you get all your chrome dry or it will rust. I keep plenty of wax on my chrome and use mothers chrome cleaner on it. No rust and I live in Florida and ride along the beach all the time.

    Why not the engine? I dont have all the chrome that most do but my forks and rims are polished aluminum along with the rocker boxes, Just dont want to mess up the aluminum part thats all.
