I use WD40 for lots of cleaning on the bike, especially degreaseing kind of stuff, I get it in the gallon can. (mineral spirts also works but I hate the smell of it)

For cleaning the bike I use Honda or Bike Spirts spray polish

For polishing metal I use an wenol, or like metal polish

For cleaning carbs I use Honda's branded carb cleaner or berrymans (you can find berrymans at autoparts store)
I tried Pinesol, and it just didn't work fast enough for me, nor did it get my carb clean enough. I still had to use the other cleaners.

Don't get carb cleaner on the soft rubber bits of the carb it trashes them right quick.
