Recommended Posts

Would you say this is dirty?

How do you clean yours? So far, all I do is wipe it with a damp paper towel.

Thinking about using brake cleaner.

Thanks in advance for the help.

just out of curiosity, why woud you clean that? its not like anyone will ever see it. does it get bad enough to affect the performance of the bike?

Prior to swapping for the rs-2, I used a brass wire brush to clean the carbon off of mine.
