Hmmmmmmmmmm interesting, I know it does a great job on the hands. You just might be on to something. I bet your hands are really,really clean when you're done.

Simple green gets my vote. But when I run out I'de have no problem giving the ole' orange a try. Thanks

try Mr Clean. I learned this from Maico factory mechanics back in the 70's. You can dilute it (1 part water,1 part Mr clean.) Just wet bike, spray on, hose off. Works much better than Simple Green, and cheaper too.

I haven't tried any of the gojo for other than my hands (great for hands!) but there is also a non-pumice version (no abrasives). This works great on hands and maybe safer for the bike??

I'm using .99 cents GOJO to clean my air filter and it works very well on the air filter element too ! Give it a try ! Cheaper than the PJ1 Filter Cleaner Spray and last longer !

Hope this help any one ! :)

Cal, I was a big simple green fan until I tried the Westley's. I've used it for about 5 years, and had no problems.(I think I just jinxed myself). I dont let it sit on the bike for more than about a minute. Leaves it looking like new. Does a good job on the extra chainlube that gets all over the swingarm too.

Dirtjunkie,

Watch out for the Castrol , I've had it make streaks, (never to come out without steel wool) on bare aluminum.

It must be slightly caustic. But I also might have left it on too long. come to think of it it was also hard on clear coated surfaces.

Oh God! :) We better not let our girl's see this posting. They will want to know why we don't worry this much about the kitchen floor, or worse. How come we arent cleaning the damn thing.

Simple Green...

It works great and is environmentally safe...no worries letting it drain on the grass and into the sewer...don't forget that when deciding what product to buy...whatever you choose you will go through a lot of it...better for the karma..

Just my .02

Ride On.....

J :)

Hey Guys

I've been using a product called CHARLIE'S SOAP for the past five years and I can't say enough good things about it. It's biodegradable and doesn't hurt delicate surfaces. It will clean just about anything. Check them out at www.charliesoap.com.

I have been using Westley's bleach white tire cleaner. Spray it on and hose it off. 10 times better than Simple Green. Give it a try you'll be amazed.

Simple Green has a big brother, Simple Green Automotive. If you thought the regular kind worked great, wait till you try this stuff. I've only seen it at AutoZone stores though.
