Wink -- K1200LT 2006 How to clean the seat --

Hello Everybody

I have some dirty spots in my K1200LT seat, and I would like to get your feedback regarding what kind of product can I use to clean it. I am not sure about from what material was build the seat, it is not leather because it is too spongy and neither is vinyl because is not shiny. Can I just regular soap and water on it? what would you recommend?.

Thank you

Ralph

How did it get spots on it Just kidding. I would just use soap with some warm water. Don't use armor-all or any other type of slippery things.

I recall just reading somewhere that the seat is made out of marine vinyl. Whatever that is?

This bike is a work horse!
hose it down, and if that doesn't work, try a plastic cleaner from the auto-store.

Been using Mother Cleaner for 25 plus years. Works great and does not leave the seat with a residue like other cleaners/conditioners.

Its matte finish vinyl. Dawn and water works great, if not use 409 and rinse with water.

I wish, I did ask you before putting armor all on it ;-) , too late now and it looks ugly, will try to wash it out with water and soap as suggested.
