How soon after riding can I use my motorcycle cover ?

Our Improved Heat Shield allows the cover to touch warm exhaust pipes. We suggest waiting minimum 10-15 minutes after use before placing your cover on your bike to allow your exhaust pipes to cool.

How can I prevent mold and mildew on my Dowco Powersports product?

Most Powersports fabrics contain anti-microbial agents that are compounded in the polymer system of a particular product. Benefits would include: resistance of product deterioration caused by bacteria and fungi; inhibiting the growth of odor-causing bacteria, fungi, molds and mildew. Please keep in mind that even with an anti-microbial agent within the fabric, it is extremely important that you keep the product dry and clean it periodically to keep it free of dirt or debris.

What is the proper way to clean my Dowco Guardian, WeatherAll Plus, or Ultralite cover?

Proper maintenance of fabric is important to help maximize the life of your product. Routine care is quite simple and certain procedures are recommended:

  1. Keep dirt, leaves and other debris from accumulating on the fabric surface.
  2. Washing down with a garden hose on a bright, sunny day is recommended.
  3. To remove dirt from either side of the material, use a soft brush and mild soap (such as Ivory). DO NOT use bleach.
  4. Rinse thoroughly with clear water and let dry completely before storing or rolling.
  5. Do not steam or pressure wash.
  6. Do not launder.
