* Clean Motor

Make sure to wash the motorcycle again with clean water with soap. This is to avoid corrosion or rust due to corrosive sea water.

* Check Motor Electrical / Cable Line.

Detikers are reminded not to immediately turn on the main switch or ignition. Make sure the wiring line or fuse housing is dry and clean of dirt or rust.

* Change Engine Oil and Axle Oil.

Changes to engine oil and axle oil are carried out after being contaminated with water, if necessary, over-houle the machine to clean the inside of the machine.

* Check Air Filter.

Check the air filter, and if it is submerged, replace the air filter with a new one.

* Check Spark Plugs and Close Spark Plugs

Replace spark plugs and make sure the spark plug cob is dry so as to prevent ignition leakage.
