If you use anything with any real pressure (like a pressure washer), don't get too close while blasting. The fins on the rad are super-thin and you can bend em flat with no problem.
You might want to give it a good soaking and let it sit...then repeat. Might take a while to soften up a thick pack of dried-on muck.
Once you get er clean, rob350 has the plan, rinse it out after every ride...it's that "once of prevention" thang. Colbygil also nailed it with hitting it from the back but that's a heck of a lot easier with the plastic off.
