Not everyone is in favour of high pressure cleaners.
Not only is it the bearings that can ultimately be damaged, I have found moisture also seeps into the electrical system and that can fail at any time;
usually at the most inconvenient time! I suspect chain links could also be vulnerable.
The good thing about this particular product (and others like it) is that the bike owner is the one in charge of the spraying.
I haven't seen steam cleaners anywhere in Thailand.
Do they exist?
True the use of a high pressure washer can have effect on bearings of your motorcycle, it's therefore smart to keep the water pressure from the areas where bearings are.
For the moisture problem we have discovered Phillips Electronic Contact spray, which basically keeps all forms of moisture from the bikes electronics. It also prevents corrosion of copper, nickel and aluminum contacts. Basically it's a sort of oil without any acid, which is remarkable sticky...
Nope I never seen a steam cleaner in Thailand, at least not one I could buy for home use....
