If you’re covering your ACE between rides or between seasons, it is highly advised that you clean it first. All the mud and dirt that accumulates on the cowling, body panels, and in the intake vents aren’t the best thing to have on for long periods of time, so use a garden hose or power washer if you have one -- making sure to stand a few feet back with the latter -- and give your ACE a quick spray-down. Look underneath the fender wells at the bottom of the breather box and you’ll find a little black rubbery thing hanging down. This is a drain plug and kind of looks like an upside-down pyramid. If you squeeze it'll release any fluid in the breather box, draining all the liquid that built up from the wash. Just make sure to not run your ACE for about 30 minutes after washing to be sure no water is where it shouldn’t be. Once your machine is clean and dry, throw your cover on and it’ll be nice and fresh for your next ride.
