im taking my plastics off so that "bandndesigns" can paint them. I am wanting to super clean everything under there with degreaser and a hose and tooth brush. Other than the intake part is there anything that needs to be covered up and out of the way of water.

As long as you don't apply direct high pressure spray to one area to long it should be ok. Ive rode through creeks before with no problems. Just have to make sure the air filter stays dry when riding. They can handle some water with no problems. :thumb:

I normally spray my raptor down with Simple Green after every ride and then power wash it off. I have had no problems at all. I have also ran through deep water, well, it was up to my nuts when I had to hop off and walk it out, but it floats! I also don't have my pressure washer set to full steam, the only prob I've had is loosening some of the aftermarket stickers I put on. I wouldn't think twice about soaking that pig down, just put your airbox cover on and plug up that hole. If you're real worried, wrap up your air filter with a plastic bag.

just do like i did.. take a rag and brush spray simple green on an area... brush and wipe with a rag then just hose it off... dont even need much pressure then move to another area. after d-town's mud bath i did 4-5 "wash offs" and one good wash with the brush, rag, simple green, and water hose

I have my raptor plastics all off trying to trace out a no start issue (fixed it) and decided to wash it, it was muddy and stunk like swampass... after washing it and stuff with normal garden hose pressure I pulled it into the garage and it would crank but not start. I'm guessing I got water somewhere in a connector. It was late and i didnt troubleshoot it.

Tonight I'm hoping the water dried up (or I'm gonna soak the quad with wd40) and I'm gonna dielectric grease every plug on it.
