Got back from riding my new xmr last weekend and it was caked in mud. Initially i washed it on the way home at the car wash. Tried my best to get all the caked mud later on out of the skid plates on the bottom. It's pretty much impossible. Any suggestions?

about an hour or so with the pressure washer then hand wash with a good car was/wax then soak the whole bike in tire foam and wipe off. It takes me around an hour and a half to 2 hours. after a good ride.

Dude I'm ocd as hell, so I feel your pain. I always pull my skid plate off my 15 xmr 800 after a real nasty ride. I pull up on oil change ramps, six 10mm bolts and two 13 mm with torques heads and its off, really lets you get everything out of the frame rails. Every couple of rides I pull the side plastics to get to everything underneath. My buddy's love to give me slack, but she stays sexy.
