    Dirty rear end!!

    I`ve been cleaning my latest purchase, and the aprilia titanium cans are mega dirty , really baked on. i`ve tried wd-40 etc, but it`s not shifting anything. Any tips? maybe a light scotchbriting?

    I use Meguiars metal polish on my metal most of the time. I've also used Autosol before now.

    I have used alloy wheel cleaner, but you need to be real careful and remove this quickly, it will have them shining with less elbow grease, but make sure you get it of with lashings of soapy water quickly, i use Mothers wheel cleaner

    Simoniz citrus cleaner works great on the blue rims and removing chain oil off exhaust. polish exhaust with mothers afterwards.
