I drop mine off at the laundromat to be cleaned and pressed. So nice and fresh.I'd be curious if someone that usually cleans but didn't responded back with what they thought.
Just rode on a new belt Sunday without cleaning. Clutch faces are still clean looking

I remove my belt and clean both it and the clutches after every trip.
