Got into cleaning the brakes and cylinder head this Saturday.
I think I used every cleaner I had on hand to try and clean the heavy dirt staining on the brakes and cylinder head.
I used brake cleaner, brewery basic cleaner, WD40, scrub pads and BBQ foaming Simple Green and I'm still trying to figure out how to get the dirt stains out of the aluminum parts.
Anyone have any suggestions? Aluminum wheel cleaner the answer?
I had some marginal success with the brakes
Heavy dirt staining on the fins of the cylinder head
Finally picked up the newly powder coated frame today!
Wow! Powder coating done by STB Coatings in NE Portland. Great shop
Hopefully picking up the suspension this week, and hope to get the cylinder in for boring next week. I'm hopefully should be ready to start putting the XR back together very soon!
