As I continued prpping my motorcycle for the winter, I realized I had short changed you on my last post.
Clean your ped and dry it thoroughly, preferably by riding for a while. Use a good Auto paste wax and wax everything. I use a cheap 1 inch bristle paint brush from the discount tool store ($0.25) to get the bolt heads and other nooks and crannies, you can also use another brush to clean up these areas. Keep everything lubed, especially the cables and chain. A couple of drops of oil on all moving parts which do not have grease nipples works wonders.
The wax will help prevent the corosive salt water from gettin into the bolt holes, spoke nipples etc., helping avoid problems in the future.
This kind of detailed clean up also gives you an opportunity to catch loose nuts and bolts, spokes etc, before they become a major problem.
