WHAT STANDS OUT? Here’s a list of things that stand
out with the RinseKit.
(1) Performance. The RinseKit can be used to clean
helmets, chest protectors, number plates and tools. With
seven different settings, the RinseKit is gentle enough to
be used on children as a mobile shower. We used it to
rinse down the MXA wrecking crew’s offspring before
putting them back in the truck after a long day of playing
in the dirt. With only 2 gallons of water at your disposal,
unless you have a garden hose with water pressure to
refill the unit, it’s not much of a bike washer. It does offer
strong water pressure, though, and maintains its water
pressure for a long time.
( 2) Use. The RinseKit is built like a small ice chest. The
exterior is a molded plastic box with a locking lid and a
plastic carry handle. It is strong enough to be used as an
extra seat at the track when not in use (with the hose
stored inside). The interior has a braided line connected
with a garden-hose spray nozzle. You have four minutes of
spray time with pressure that is comparable to an average
garden hose. To refill the RinseKit, you plug the quick-con-
nect adapter into the end of a water faucet. Be careful,
because the plastic adapter is easy to lose or break; be
gentle handling the plastic nipple. It is a good idea to
drain the RinseKit completely every 15 uses for optimal
( 3) Size. The RinseKit is 1 foot, 2 inches wide by 1 foot,
5 inches long. The empty unit weighs 9 pounds, and filled
up it weighs 24 pounds. With its compact size and weight,
you can tuck it in a small area of your vehicle.
WHAT’S THE SQUAWK? Two quibbles. (1) Two gallons
isn’t enough water to tackle any major cleaning jobs. ( 2)
The plastic adapter needs to be more durable.
Two gallons of water is not enough to

wash a bike; however, the RinseKit is perfect
for cleaning up after a moto or doing those
little jobs that just need a quick spritz.
