    Remove salt deposits

    Any products out there that are good at breaking down existing saltbuildup? I use my raider almost only in salt and while I flush it after every ride, I don't know what the previous owners did.
    I have a feeling the cooling passages are starting to get clogged up.

    I've heard of saltaway but that seems to be more for preventative maintenance and won't do much if I already have salt buildup.

    Any ideas?

    you can pull your head and see if there is a lot of salt/corrosion in your cylinder cooling jackets. I'm not sure the best way of getting it out, but I have cleaned the jackets by physically scrubbing it out with steel wool.

    Then the flush lines, blow some air in them.

    I was just about to say vinegar. However, I would dilute it a little since it's so acidic. I haven't tried it myself but I would really like to.
