    I’ve just cleaned a couple of motors that were thick with years of baked on oil and road grunge. After scraping off the thick layer I then brushed on some. Swarfiga Heavy Duty Surface Cleaner and Degreaser. It’s biodegradable and works great. The bonus is there isn’t any smell from it. I bought...

    I cleaned my carb last weekend (petrol, soapy water, rinsed, air dried for 24hours) Carb was reassembled in lab conditions! This temporarily solved a misfiring problem. I?m going to try again this weekend, any tips would be welcome. I think the problem is the main jet air intake, how can I be...

    I was going to begin this post 'what's the best way to clean my '99 f650' but truthfully what I mean is - is it safe to jet wash it clean? I'm thinking more of a home Karcher washer, not a garage-powerful one. And obviously I'm thinking be VERY VERY careful around bearings, gaskets etc. I've...

    I've just taken the air filter out of my F650 Mk1, which was rather mucky (all your fault, Trevor ;) ). Cleaned it, and it's drying now. The chaingang website suggests to cover it in 'watersoluble' cleaning oil or somesuch stuff. Any idea what to use? Or just let it dry and put it back in...
