I don't think the pressure from a garden hose, even with a squirt nozzle attached, is much of a threat to a GoldWing. I use one when I do "wash" my bike. Here's the kicker.
That is usually when I have the bike torn down for a serious cleaning, and the intake is right there and open but I've never sprayed water into it. And, even if I did get a little in there, it would have to work its way through the air filter to get to the carbs, where it would probably sit at the bottom of the bowel.
My point is; to get enough water into the combustion chamber to cause metal stuff to break, it seems like you'd have bypass the air/fuel intake, wouldn't you?
Why ain't we ridin'?
