The book says no high pressure water or it will damage the rads. The rad and oil rad are getting a little plugged and without high pressure water I'm not sure how to tackle the job. Any suggestions?

Not saying that I would use a pressure washer, but I "know a guy" who washes the bugs off an RT after a ride (like the Food Bank ride) with a pressure washer.  Key is to use common sense and not blast the fins of the radiator from an inch away.  It will also help sometimes to use air or physically pull some of the grasshoppers off by hand first.  The "guy I know" would generally just blast from a couple feet away being careful not to directly spray the rad or or any of the buttons on the handlebars with excessive pressure.  Usually cleans up nicely but kinda stinks like fish.  

With plugged or dirty radiators on mud quads it is common to run a garden hose from the back and front and just let the normal water pressure do the work.
