Try to cover the dizzy (get a freezer bag or something in there), and plugs, try not to get too much water in any of electrical components. I usually clean the motor with it running so most of the water evaporates before it can cause problems to any electrical components.

just don't spray a high pressure washer directly at s**t that shouldn't be wet and you'll be fine.

What steady said... Don't point it up the connector for the computer or any other major plugs... a quick sweep over most things is ok... directly and constantly pointing high pressure water up connectors and snorkels and that is no good for them...

I would avoid spraying engine cleaner or strong degreaser on the front of the engine too. Those alloy bits get all cloudy and look s**t.
