Any good engine cleaner/engine shampoo (you can also use foaming oven cleaner)and a bit of scrubbing from top to bottom will get it clean. Keeping it clean is the main thing,it's way easier to give it a quick clean after each ride then to try to scrub weeks/months of grime off every now and then,and while you're cleaning it you can check for leaks or other issues.
