On rare ocasions if it is realy dirty I`ll use a foaming degreaser, then wash, then oil.

Hi, Greg

I make my own degreaser by shaking detergent with kerosine, half and half. Do this in a jam jar with a closed lid. You should see a thick emulsion form. You can now paint this onto your sprocket, swingarm and other dirty bits, poking and prodding with a 1 inch paint brush. Leave on for about 15 minutes before hosing off with a fairly high pressure hose. .... This has worked for me for the last 20 years.

Someone suggested WD-40 for the chain in another similar thread... I tried that, this morning, and it does work well.

When I do clean it(which is rarely) I use a small portable steam cleaner, taking care not to steam clean the actual chain of course, which would damage the 'O' rings. :)

I would not use a high presure cleaner on the rear sprocket/hub assembly.
This is one of the mayor reasons of bearings to corrode and eating up the hub!!
WD40 does the job for me!
