It's not what you think, it's just a lot of baking soda. I media blasted the Goldwing heads and cylinder gasket surfaces the other day. I did get a little soda in the oil passages and all in the water jacket. I managed to get most of it out but there's still a very thin layer clinging to the outside of the cylinders. I'll just flush it by idling the bike and having the water pump suck in fresh supply of garden hose water and spit it out down the driveway.
