Hey Satch, how'd you like that, "boyfriend"? :banghead:

why not simply have an Ask Gray board? He could have Scratch moderate!

Is he talking about you, do you suppose, or the devil, or has he raised you to that status? :banghead:

Ahhh yes. Gray I remember the good ole days when you and I would debate what oil to use and so forth....now we are dating. LMAO

I took DigiBUYmyLube's advice and checked out his other posts on TT. Seems our spelling champion spends the majority of his time arguing politics and religion! And of course the occasional "if you want your chain to last...." posts. All the while showing the spelling aptitude and a 2nd grader.

Jay.....your the man. :banghead:

hey gray, they say that simple green is not good for aluminum,it can cause hydrogen embrittlement? the military has stopped using it and related products for this reason. just what i heard,i used to use it and stopped just in case it was true. too bad,cuz it really worked and smelled great. any truth to it?

Hey Bob, sorry I missed this one. I haven't heard that one, but as far as I know, my '01 has been washed with it since it was new. There could be some truth to it, but it may be more important on light gauge aluminum sheet, like aircraft skins. I do know that it needs to be rinsed thoroughly, or it will dull the surface a bit.

Do you have a source reference?

I use Simple Green on my "beer can" framed 250 and it shows no signs of staining or damage. Simple Green actually makes a bottle called "Powersports" cleaner....probably the same stuff but in a neat bottle. That is what I have been using on the 05 YZ250 with excellent results.

Now Castrol Super Clean on the other hand plays havoc on aluminum...stay away from that stuff.

Simple Green and it's watered down cousin, Mean Grean ( of Dollar General Store fame) may etch, but it would be negligible and shouldn't really be worried about.
But as well flatulated by the tres rauque Scratch, Castrol Super Clean is a mistake. Very harsh stuff.

If you really want to check out a quality spray cleaner that actually works as advertized, then try Proclean 1000 "Speedclean".
This spray product is absolutely amazing. Wet the bike, and spray it off...with very little scrubbing. Even with my white fenders caked with Oklahoma red clay, the crud nearly rinsed right off using this product. It is obviously a better product than Simple Green when you use them at the same time and compare.

This product was desinged specifically for our sport, and the other products they provide are of top shelf quality. They are definately worth checking out. The owner and staff of this company are as well top notch folks.

NC, as discerning as you obviously are, you may want to check these guys out.

someone thats in the airforce posted that about simple green some time ago,like said it might just be the thinwall stuff. kinda pricey for that pro-clean $40 a gallon,i think i was paying $6 or $7 a gal for simple green. i've started spraying the bike with wd-40 after washing it with just water through my electric pressure washer. the dirt seems to come off easier,i don't think it sticks as bad while riding either. honda HP teflon/moly chain lube seems to be working for me as far as that all goes(i know red can on a blue bike;blasphemy)

Don't tell anyone, but I like Honda grip glue.

Does a high priced moto-specific wash solution seem like an odd recommendation for someone who says that moto-specific oil is a scam to make?

Yes, you should change everything out as a set (counter sprocket, sprocket, and chain), to prevent premature wear on new parts. I went with Renthal, and I am very satisfied with it...very strong and made of a lightweight aluminum. Regina makes the chain, Renthal just supplies the specs. You can get a set for $130.
