This last weekend I was out in the garage cleaning up the Mean Streak, and I was appalled on how dirty the break calipers looked. The problem being I’d never heard of any one cleaning the calipers them self’s. I checked the forms past posts and found a ton of cleaning posts/topics on everything from gas tank cleaning, air filter cleaning to cleaning out your pipes. Far be it I think you can take a pill for the last one :biggrin:

Question being does anyone clean their motorcycles break calipers other then when there doing work on the breaks themselves. And if so what do you use to clean them? Personally I was thinking of just using break cleaner myself , but then though better of it being that the calipers are painted on the MS.

Spray the rag not the bike, just like when you're cleaning your inner butterflies (and you are aren't you) you spray the toothbrush and not the bike, I put it in a bucket and spray if I'm in the garage.

Possibly a better way would be spray brake cleaner onto a rag and wipe the rotor . . .
Yep, can be done that way also. Brake cleaner is designed to be sprayed and evaporate. I put the rag behind the rotor to avoid overspraying other areas, then spray to ensure I reach all crevices. Using just the rag may not reach in all spots and will require the wheel to be turned while wiping as well. Either way will work.
