    Hi my name is Rob from Ireland. Have a 2016 manual transmission crosstourer. Anybody any suggestions on tar remover products. The crosstourer seems to throw up a lot of tar on the body work.

    Hi Guy,
    Welcome from Meath Ireland. What part are you from?
    Maybe you'll post this question in the relevant section.

    Hi Tom. From Laois.  Not that familiar with posting on this site.  Trying to get the hang of it.

    No problem Guy.
    Great to get another paddy on here! There are about 4 active members on here.
    WD40 is good at removing tar from exhausts (Akrapov recommend it) and the under carriage. ACF50 is great for protection all over the bike.

    I use white spirit for removing tar from the exhaust, hugger, wheels etc.  Dissolves it nicely.
