I've been reading up (and watching the many YouTube videos) on the best ways to clean a motorcycle. I was wondering what you guys use to clean the brake dust from wheel rims. SDOC100 seems to be the best non-corrosive option, perhaps some of you could weigh in on this one. In the past I've used Muck-Off, but have since learnt that it is laden with salt! Think this may have explained a calliper lock-up on a previous bike. So, new bike, new cleaning regime to keep it looking smart and prolong its mechanical lifespan.
WD40. Best bike cleaning product out there and it shifts stuff nothing else will, won't corrode anything and is cheap. You can buy 5lt tubs off it for little money.. £25? if memory serves and that will last forever.
I recently did 4500 miles in a couple of weeks in very hot countries so the brake dust was baked on my wheels and a quick spray and wipe shifted it no bother.
Then wash your bike with your favorite bike cleaner or car shampoo taking special care to ensure you haven't got any WD40 overspill on your tyres of course!

Best thing I've found is scarily baby wipes. God knows what's in them as I use them on the kids but just cut through grease and brake dust like nothing on earth. They do leave a residue so have to clean with soap and water after anyway but I think that's the same with most cleaners.
