The time to clean your engine is before you open up any of the engine cover of your Honda CX500, GL500, CX650 or GL650 for a triple or quadruple bypass - there's almost always grit, dust, dirt, muck and various other things on the outside that you don't need falling into your motor as soon as you open a cover.
There's any number of ways of doing this; soda blasting is popular, but if you don't have the kit to do that a small amount of degreaser - such as kerosene - and a parts cleaning brush or cleaning spray gun (compressor driven) is an easy way of getting most of the muck off.
