Washing bike question.

It's gets pretty dusty under my tank and seat. Can I lift these and wash underneath. Electrics? The throttle bodies get pretty dirty. Also can you seal off the gaps in the rear fairing, where the exhaust mounts are, to stop road dust and spray from entering. Thanks.

I would not worry about it. I always wash the 919 without the seat on (& that is where the ECU is). Nothing much under the tank. I will occaationally spray under the hood of my autos also--wash away.

Ok, thanks. I was worried about moisture in the harness, electrical joiners, sensors,injectors etc. Might undo all electrical plug and sockets and pack with grease before washing.

Try to avoid pressurized water anywhere near any seals/connectors/boots/etc... but they're all made to survive rain... as long as you don't go in there spraying on full blast or use a pressure washer or something dumb you shouldn't have any issues.
