Spoke Wheel Cleaner

#1 Unread post by rhino65 » Tue Jun 19, 2012 7:44 pm

Whats some good spoke wheel cleaner. I just bought a 2000' V star and don't think the spokes saw much attention. Whats best way to get a few years of grime off them? I did a dozen or so spokes on front with a bog sponge, got a decent shine back but not easy gettin your fingers between spokes to clean. Is there a special spoke brush I can get to make job easier? I spent most of weekend polishing and waxing it twice. Looks great now except for spokes.

I've found chain cleaner works really well for cleaning wheels/spokes. If that doesn't work, try Stripper Juice. Yes that's an actual product lol. Works well!

Anyone using one of those Mothers Powerballs for their spokes and rims? I've been thinking of getting one...

I have a brush like a baby bottle brush only much stronger and tapered. Its from Victoria British,
designed for sports car wheels. Works fine with soapy water.

You may use eagle 1 all wheel cleaner and after cleaning it protect and shine it with mothers power ball.
