how do you protect/clean the dang radiators


I am now wiping my MV down like when you clean a babies bum, and I get to the radiator and realize I dont know how to softly clean out the burnt bug graveyard??
How would I protect it, and if I cant how can I clean it??

Italian outfit, Rubber, heat, grunting, and you fill the open hole for more?? What's not to love??

Just had a look on emoto and didn't see them there but they are available...do some searches (here and google) it shouldn't be too difficult to find them.

Buy the radiator grill as suggested by Rockethouse.

I use a 4x4 heavy duty foam wash on the radiators and use compress air from the inner side of the raditors to blow the dust and road grime out.

Slow is smooth and smooth is fast!!

Leave one or two dead bugs to ward off evil spirits.
