I was wandering if any one could tell me what to use to clean the swing arm and the crank case. It seems like that cast just dosn't like to come clean, I even scrubed it with a rag and a spounge. The problem is that I didn't clean it right away and the dirt and mud like stained it. Any help would be great.

Thanks
Derrick

You could use contact cleaner on some of it. It will take anything off, so I would watch where you spray it....and dont get it on painted things.

That or WD-40 is what I use.

Get all of it off that you can and then use Eagle One Mag Cleaner(basicly an aluminum acid) and let it foam up on it and it will bleach it out. It will be bleached out but at least it wont be stained.

It has been said many times, Simple Green. Works on anything and is non toxic. Try it once and youll probably use it forever.

It works on the swingarm to get the grease and oil off from the chain?

Simply green full strength works great, soak it (on heavily oiled or greasey parts), let it set a few minutes and hose it off. Dilute it for other parts of the quad or do not let it sit full strength. Best stuff ever. I also use S100 after washing on the rims, plastic, seat for a great shine and to assist in clean up later from dust and mud.

Doesnt your seat get slick? I made the mistake of putting alittle armor all on my seat one time and I damn near slid off.

Surprisingly not with the S100 detail and wax, armour all does for sure.
