Hey all, Just bought a new 2012 XP 1000 and was standing in awe of its obsurdly nice cockpit. How am I to clean the consol? Is is safe to blast the whole machine (inside and out) with a power washer and sponge?

Hehe...you said blast and power washer in the same sentence .....I use a lower pressure garden hose on the lower, non critical parts and a damp rag on the critical upper dash parts ....but that's just me

We dune and have sand at the end of the weekends .....a garden hose is all I ever use anywhere on our utvs ....the high pressure washers can do more damage than good if not careful is my premise and rule of thumb....you must be a mudder, trail rider?

Yeah mostly mudding and trail ridin for this guy (Missouri). Odyknuck is right. The mud can be like seasoned concrete once its dries. Think ill reserve the power washer for the undercarriage and garden hose and sponge for most everything else. WD40 on the plastic? Is that kind of like spraying Pam on a frying pan?

"Is that kind of like spraying Pam on a frying pan?" Ha! Ha! pretty much. I use the pressure washer on the whole machine. By varying the distance from the machine you can control the actual velocity of the water. Just be careful with decals and hit them straight on as to not lift the edges. They are really durable and will stay on. Careful arounf any seals like in the wheel spindles and differentials.

LOL..thanks for the laugh this morning...as I was reading and got to the "obsurbly nice cockpit" I knew you meant XT....not an XP..

and Lance remeber, we did have to use the pressure washer to get the Morrow County glue off of both the Commander & Rhintax,
we learned to remove before it gets baked on...:giggle:

Ive been a Grizzly guy for years so I figured I see what all the hype was about. These these things are sick and I aint going back. Thanks for all the sarcasm and helpful comments. Ill be back for more as soon as I have another retarded question.
