Recently rode in the snow and the salt has tarnished my sprocket hub and many other parts on my motorcycle. Tried to clean it off with wd-40, purple power, and a toothbrush (Didn't work ). What are your methods successes and failures?
Salt is water soluble.... Maybe a drop of dawn in a gallon bucket to knock that shit off. After that I would hit the affected area with kerosene to get the oil based crap broken down. Then.... Back with soap and water followed by a rinse of pure water. Avoid the chain with the soap. I'm certain its far from good for L M N O P or X ring chains.
if you love your motorcycle, set it free.. if it comes back and hits you.. you highsided
Thanks Beefsalad, I tried that and still couldn't get it where I wanted so I bought some CLR. Bad idea, DO NOT USE CLR on your parts! It gave my bolts a foggy greenish hue. Ended up cleaning them once more and using a polish wheel to press the bolts against. Fixed everything.
