    Default Cleaning Motorcycle Wheels

    On my cars for the last few years i've used Auto Glym Alloy wheel cleaner. it does the job and leaves the wheels looking clean with a shine to them too.
    My new motorcycle has painted wheels and i was wondering if any of you have a certain wheel cleaner you use or would recommend using on painted wheels?? Obviously i'd prefer it if you've used the cleaner on painted wheels or if there are any motorcyclists out there in vectra land who could recommened a cleaner they use on their bike.

    thanks in Advance.

    I use WD-40 at the mo but it leaves these wheels looking dull. Granted it shifts all the crud, but i find it leaves a sticky, greasy film that dust gets stuck to quite easily.

    I used to use WD40 on a cloth to get rid of stubborn deposits, then I'd wash the wheels with a sponge/bucket of car shampoo & water. I used to polish mine up with Autoglym stuff on all the painted surfaces after that - wheels, tank and plastic fairings.

    Never even thought of just washing them afterwards with normal car shampoo and water. I'll give it a try next time i clean it up. Got myself in trouble the other day. Told missus i'd give the rear single swing arm a quick clean. Be about half an hour. 2 hours later i'd just finished. I kept finding small brackets that came off and allowed me to clean behind and in to nooks and cranies you can't usually get to. Oooppps
