We have to keep the sponge ready and make sure that it is clean and it should be kept in such a place so that it cannot touch the ground or else it will get dirty.Along with the dirt dead bugs are also harmful for such motorcycles so you may use the bug and tar remover to clean the part where there are dead bugs or also kill the bugs which still exists in the motorcycle,and for removing the bugs you will have to use a sponge.

while cleaning the bike make sure you don’t rub the sponge too hard and be very careful about not using the same sponge again. In a motorcycle there are two kind of parts,one is hard part another part is sensitive part so the hard part should be treated differently than the sensitive parts.

After this we will have to use the toothbrush to clean the parts which are very difficult to reach by hands and in the bike there are lots of such parts which cannot be reach by hands.
