Caring for your Bike Bag.

Installing and caring for your CoversShop Bike Bag motorcycle cover.

FIRST USE: Do not use the bag until you have placed the 'stand protectors'. To do this simply roll the bike onto the opened PVC base of the bag and work out where the stand will be and place the protectors. They can be used with either the centre stand or the side stand.

Fitting the cover to your bike:

  • The Bike Bag has a zip that opens and closes it. Open it all the way and lay it on the ground. Roll your bike onto the PVC base and put the stand down. Zip the cover closed over your bike.

To clean your cover:

  • Use warm soapy water (washing up liquid is fine), and sponge the cover down.
  • If any oil or grease gets on the cover, a degreaser such as Gunk can be used.
  • It is best not to cover a dirty bike, but if any dirt does get on the underside of the cover, again sponge it off with warm soapy water. Also, if your bike is dirty, beware of the cover rubbing the dirt against your paintwork.

Warnings:

  • Do not cover a bike that has been recently resprayed and the paint has not been oven baked. Leave for 3 months to allow the curing process and make sure the cover doesn't interfere with this. Likely affects are marbling or blooming of the paintwork if this is not followed. This is not caused by the cover but is caused by interference with the curing process.
  • Beware of any sharp points. Unless covered with an old glove or something similar, they are likely to tear the cover.
