Default Touchfree car wash and roof rack with fairings

As stated in the subject, Touchfree car wash and roof rack with fairings? I only concern is pressure drying.

Thanks!

if you are worried about the pressure from the water and dryers just remember the parts probably see an average of about 70MPH wind on the freeway.....nothing to freak out about.

One's a gas and one's a liquid....being hit at 70mph by air =/= 70mph by water

If you're worried, just take the fairing off before hand, though mine held up just fine.

Too lazy to do that! I suppose I'll give it a try during the next wash and see what happens.

I used to take my SE-R Spec V through touch free cars washes. I never had a problem...just make sure its truly touch free I got in line for one in VA and it said touch free but it wasn't...so I had to get a refund and back out of line. I had a Thule roof rack, bike rack, fairing and never had any issues going through truly touch free car washes that only utilized water pressure. Although it goes without saying you should be making sure everything is properly secured every now and again as bolts can become loose from driving. I would definitely recommend you do that before going through a wash.
