Another mystery oil fan

Saw a YouTube last night the guy was using Marvel's Mystery Oil to remove the aluminum oxide on his bike. I bought some, and it really cleaned up the valve cover, cylinder fins, and the wheels. I think it could be up there with Sea Foam as liquids that actually work.

Rust never sleeps

Type "motorcycle polishing" into the YouTube search. There are lots of great ideas.

Yes, just don't use it IN your motor.

WD40 is great for cleaning grease off bike parts, and even your hands. But don't use it either to lubricate anything on your bike.

Spray cans of electrical contact cleaner work even better than WD40 at removing grease, and it's safer on most other parts than WD40 or brake cleaner.

Not sure I like the idea of using Mystery Oil near my tires however....

I could get the same result on brushed alluminum by using a rag soaked in Olive Oil.
