Yes it is...i reccomend getting some of that purple stuff from Autozone or Wal Mart, its concentrated to mix with water but use it straight full strength and spray down your motor first and let it set for 5 minutes and then rinse it off with the high pressure. It works GREAT!
Don't let that stuff get in your eyes or on your skin from the mist...it burns a little and it can't be good for you...

Just a side note, I don't recomend doing it while the mtr is hot. Wait till it cools down, or before you have run it for the day.

My owners manual has a nice picture that shows what you should cover to keep from getting wet.
