You can pretty much use anything, even pure solvent.

The issues are what happens to your hands/skin/immune system, and the bikes finishes, that's why it's easier to just use the 'green' cleaners and mild solvents.

Sounds like you could benefit from a service manual for your bike... if you want to wrench on it and learn more about it, I would get one.

 

Replacing the rear sprocket is as simple as pulling off the rear wheel and removing the bolts that hold it on. They are probably an allen key head and a 12mm nut.

You need a service manual

 

Never re-use the old sprocket bolts/nuts
