Any reason to not w@* the sidecar canvas?

Woe unto you that bought the first model year of a major remake, perhaps this section can help address any 2014 and later model Ural "imperfections". Here's a special section for folks with the latest rigs to discuss 2014 and later model-related topics such fuel injection, 3-wheel disc brakes, hydraulic steering dampers, spin-on oil filters and other anomalies that don't belong on true Russsian motorcycle ;-P We've gone from using big hammers and greasy wrenches to needing computers and Ouija boards in order to fix our rigs.
Forum rules
Please keep this section specific to issues pertaining to 2014 and later models such as fuel injection, sidecar and rear disc brakes and so forth. Ask general or non-2014 and later specific questions in the main Hammerin' & Wrenchin' section.

As you may have heard, it rains every now and again in Seattle, my wife and I are w@*ing up our canvas clothing and backpacks for the winter. I'm planning on w@*ing up the sidecar canvas cover, buuuuuuuut is there any reason you guys know not to do before I go and learn yet another noob lesson? I'm all ears!

If you do using regular detergent the materials water repellency and UV protection may be compromised. It would probally be best to use something like Nik-w@* Tech w@$#, which will protect and enhance the protection.

ahhhh ok, I W A X ed it this morning with Greenland w a x (why is it censored?) and in the sun it glistens and it will hopefully do a good job, I put down 3 coats. The one draw back so far is that while it's cold and you bend the canvas, or touch it, or fold it or think about it, the w@* turns white on the canvas, but then the sun melts it back in just a jiffy. we'll see!
