Cleaning behind the light assembly


Recommended Posts

I've been riding my FJ in all weather and find that the rain splashes down the inside of the windscreen and behind the light assembly's.  There are a lot of nooks and cranny's down there and really hard to get in a clean properly.  Has anyone has success without putting the hose down there?

OK, I just went out and did a wipe down with Pledge. In sunny and very dry CA we mainly get dust. So I spray pledge on an old bath towel and turn up the toons.
For the life of me Mr., Mrs., Ms. Yamaha design engineers, why the *^%()BN&* did you put a beehive plastic thingy between and under the headlights? Seems the only practical use is to store grime and bug guts. Q-tips, rolled up bits of paper towel and some language got most of it out after only 1,000 miles. But we actually do ride these things folks @ Yamaha. They get dirty and this beehive plastic thingy gets stuffed with guts. Seems it would have been simple to put a flat piece of black plastic which would have been much easier to just wipe off.
OK, I'm done. Time to go ride so I can get the smile back on my face.
