Question on CVT cleaning with hose in snork

Can I put a hose in my snorkle, loose a couple of CVT bolts and simply flush the CVT to clean it and then let it dry or will I booger something up?

I guess you could if you don't want your clutch to last long. Just take the cvt cover off and clean it, and lube your one way bearing is the best bet, that way you can inspect things at the same time. Only takes about 2 minutes to get your cover off.

that is how you check for leaks, not for cleaning the clutches. take the cover off and clean it properly to get the grit and grime off it, then lube the one-way and friction washer. just don't use cleaners that cause oxidation on aluminum like purple power, greased lighting, or any other really harsh cleaners. LA's totally awesome from the dollar store is what i use for cleaning everything and won't oxidize the aluminum unless it is left on for a really long time.
