PostSubject: Cleaning….   November 18th 2013, 9:01 am

 I went ahead and ordered this stuff to assist in cleaning my Wildcat. A buddy of mine posted a thread from the Rzr Forum from some guys that are using this on a pressure washer. According to their comments, this will clean your machine without having to take a wash mitt or sponge too it. According to the posts, you spray off the heavy mud/dirt, then foam the machine and let it sit for 5 minutes or so, and then hose it off. Heavier mud may require a second application. Thought I would give it a try! I will report my findings once it arrives and I muddy up my Wildcat again.

It should work pretty good...i got a 65 dollar electric pressure washer from lowes....i spray the heavy stuff off...spray it down with purple power...let it soak then i take dawn spray it thru the pressure washer without the end...let it sit in the suds for anoth 5-10 minutes...after that pressure wash it clean thenafter dry i wipe it down with pledge or a can of stuff from the dealer..(sc1) or something like that....every once in a while i remove all the plastic rockers back and clean it real good. 1000+ miles and still looks new

I tried the slick ATV wash stuff and it was a total bust. I have tried a lot but not this and at the end of the day chemicals cannot compete with elbow grease. 

Let us know though how it goes.

S 100 is by far the only thing I would use on a Alum motor , S 100 is safe to use in direct sunlight , will not spot , does not etch , almost all the bike manufactures recomend it or use a version of it with there name on it ( like harley wash , or honda brite) . Nothing is perfect but S 100 will not remove stickers or dull paint . Purple stuff/simple green works great but will eventually dull the plastic , it contains
Phosphorus
, Charlies Soap is another great cleaner that does not use Phosphorus , full stength it does a great job of cleaning concrete and tile , gentle enough to wash you hand at full strengh with no drying , mixed with water 25% makes a great car wash / even has directions for use as a lanudry detergent. Only thing I found on the ATV that it did not clean well was rubber parts , that is where I used the puprle stuff . I called and talked to the owner of Charlies soap and he explained that almost all soap manufactures put tracer chemicals in there soaps/detergents so that there product works better then other , his has none and said that it take 3-4 washing to remove this chemical and that his product made other products work better by removing a previoius detergents tracer chemicals. 
I would just avoid a pressure washer all together on a ATV or UTV , maybe to get the big stuff off but you would be better to leave it dirty than to blast it . When I sold my last machine it was clean and shinny with normal scratches with no polish , silicone, or wax on it , just the factory glaze on the plastic and it was a 09 model .

Good info! I don't plan on blasting it too much with a pressure washer.  I know those things can do damage if the blasting is going in the wrong area. I will use moderate pressure to get the worst off, then foam it, then more moderate pressure to remove the foam and see what I have left.

I might limit the pressure washer to the top of the machine and stick with the hose on the lower area. Still, hose/foam/hose might get me some good results. Anything to avoid hand washing in the dead of winter!

I have heard things like armor all while it is clean to help clean it up afterwards , Silicone ( like spay tire shine ) , to dish detergent light diluted in a spray bottle coat and let dry before riding . What would be awsome would be a two part cleaner , coat with one chem , then another that releases the first chem so that it is clean again , then recoat with chem number 1 .  I know on my RZR I wanted to cut back the corners of the skid plate to allow mudd to wash out ( at least on corner ) , all them rocks and mudd just hung on the skid plate even with the holes , to really get anything clean you had to drop the skid plate .

I did some reading on that Ultra Everdry and the stuffs looks interesting but it is pretty pricey and does not appear to be that durable. I have a feeling that every time you brushed a branch down the side of your machine or rubbed up against something you would need to re-coat that area.

There you go , that would be awsome , Mudd would never stick so it would never cake up , I know there was several rides where we had so much mud caked on the machines that they had no suspension left . I could care less about the upper side of the body that would be best used on the underside . Wonder how much it cost ?

Im going to tell ya…Killerskunk had a good cleaning method. His always looked good. I just pressure wash it…car bath it then soak it with SC1. That has always been a good method for what I do. If my plastics get real bad then I will send it to performance east to get new plastics but I am far from that.

I'm right here at Lowe's, let me see if they have it! 

EDIT: Found it! Same price, coverage is 10-15 sq ft so you are looking at over $1 per sq ft. Dries to a flat/slightly milky finish and made have a chalky feel to it. You can re-apply top coat as needed when water fails to run off. This might be nice under the fender wells but I am not sure how it would react to the heat of the engine. And, if it's anything like the other stuff, other cleaners seem to take it off. I am going to pass on this for now and see how my foam stuff does.

Good find , a good test that would not show would be the skid plate .

An area where this might be great is on top of the skid plates!

could just do it to the outer body. Ross did have a good thought on the heat from the motor. Don't know if it would hold up or not but putting it on the exterior only would be worth a shot maybe.

I thought about the outer body but I don't want a flat/milky finish….I 'd rather wash it. Under the fender wells might be a good place.
