Brake Cleaner

I am now a convert to Brake cleaner, I always thought the rear brake on my 1090 was poor but apply Muc off brake cleaner and it transform it, also improves the front.

Be careful using brake cleaner other than for removing brake dust from callipers. Tetrachloroethylene produces phosgene gas under certain conditions.

Brake cleaning

I always clean the calipers with warm soapy water. Lubricates the pistons and removes all the dirt with a soft paint brush.
Fairy Liquid is so kind to my hands as well .
