6 posts in this topic

DIY suspension people,

What cleaning solvent do you recommend for using on the front fork internal parts?

Automotive Cold Parts Cleaner?

Diesel Fuel?

Kerosene?

Mineral Spirits?

Others?

Thanks!

I'm not a suspension people, but have used diesel and tranny fluid with good results. :)

I've used old 2 stroke mix with no bad results, but like to use kerosene if I have it. I'm sure the seasoned brain surgeons here will have all kinds of better recommendations but this has always worked for me, and I've done it quite a few times.
