    I am having some issues with an oil leak and need to get in side bits round the engine etc squeaky clean so we can trace the leak.

    I have car and motorbike detailing kits but I can get the crud to budge, I even tried spraying brake cleaner on it and tried steam cleaning lol


    Is there anything any of you use that you think might help me get this **** off???

    Thanks

    Steam cleaning, garages do them go cars to find leaks.
    Don't know if you can do it to bikes

    Finally a post i can answer from past experience!!! Halfords shopping list. Gunke foam cleaner two tins. Corale past wax, 1 tin loads of polishing rag. On way home jiff lemon 2 lemon sprays. Step one spray one can of gunke on whole bike (dry) leave for an hour jet wash off. Step 2 While wet spray lemon on any spots visible good scrub with rag jet wash off, repeat with second gunke and lemon then dry. Polish every thing with coral paste VERY thin layers. And admire the gleam. Any new oil will not stick to wax job done. GF
