Cleaning cases?


Recommended Posts

How do you guys clean the cases. Normally I strip them down to nothing (bearings, seals, etc) and bead blast them. Well, I just don't feel like it this time. The 125's are straight Nasty. I tried Purple power w/ hot water and brush. Did't even touch it. They even been sitting in the parts washer for 3 days.

I think I saw something at one time about oven cleaner. Not sure about that on aluminum.

I've been using Simple Green and a stiff bristled nylon brush with decent success. I did it on the insides of the '88 KX125 I just rebuilt. I need to clean the outside yet, but simple green worked well so far.

soda blast! Won't hurt seals and what not but will take all the dirt off. I usually use simple green and a heavy brush along with a couple old stiff bristle tooth brushes. A bit of kerosene or mineral spirits for oil/spooge residue that gets stubborn.
