Castrol make a great motorocycle metal parts cleaner which comes in a 400ml aerosol can and costs around the £6 price mark. I buy mine from demon-tweeks. It lasts for ages but is very effective at getting into clean even the remotest parts of my motorcycle. It’s basically a fluid cleaner in aerosol format and it’s designed for use on all metallic surfaces.

I what I especially like about this highly penetrating cleaning fluid, is its ability to remove all traces of oil and grease from brake discs to engine parts. It is really powerful stuff and highly effective and versatile at what it is actually able to clean. I even use it on my handle bars, , carburetors, electrical switches and spark plugs.

It’s easy and simple to use. I shake the can vigorously but always take care to protect my face as the fumes from this can be pretty intense and you need to make sure you’re not sitting in the way of the direction of the wind when you spray this stuff. The can has a ‘power jet action’ which means that the spray comes really very forcefully out of the can and it is this which enables the contents to reach to parts of the bike you wouldn’t normally be able to get to manually, without the aid of the powerful jet.

Simply spray liberally, leave for a few minutes then gently wipe off. It really is as simple and easy as that and the results are pretty amazing. I would definitely recommend this stuff if you have a load of build up of grime and grease in difficult to reach places and you need to give your bike a thorough cleaning. It also leaves a great protective finish and a film, which helps to prevent the continued build up grime and dirt on your bike. I’ve used this stuff for ages and have used cheaper alternatives but always seem to gravitate back to this.
