    Bought my cruiser from a guy in Oklahoma and it must have been stuck in some heavy duty clay! I have spent days with a screwdriver, going to the car wash, more scraping, more high pressure wash... still clay all over the frame and inside the frame. Any trick to getting it off? So far I have probably gotten 10 pounds of clay (at least!) off the frame. It was even caked above the transmission and the frame rails were completely packed.

    Put a sprinkler underneath it for an afternoon.

    2nd vote, sprinkler....run for 2 hours, hit with the pressure washer, run again 2 hours, pressure wash again. In the future, hit with pressure washer immediately after a ride and make sure you flow-thru the frame rails each trip too...

    I ended up scraping off a lot with a putty knife when water didn't do it.
