New week, new mods ;-)

I "upgraded" my cockpit to this:



So I can listen to music on my iPhone 4, the GPS is showing me where I'm heading to and the Spot Messenger is tracking my way and could be useful in an emergency. I'm not quite sure how to handle the emergency thing in case I couldn't reach the bike any more... But primarly I'm using the Spot as a tracking device.

Ahh, and I got the Metal Mule radiador shield! So, now I'm hopping on and going for a ride.

Cheers!

I clean my bike very often, but also ride it very often in hard wet, muddy conditions.
This is the look of the rear hub I need to clean to look like new.
Any suggestions?


Owners know this is aluminum hub, so its difficult to clean.
And on the picture this is already washed with high pressure steam washer, so it should be clean already, and it only gets to this point.
I know I can do something with brush and diesel, of WD 40, but will not be able to remove all, to make it shine.
Thats why I am asking for ideas.
Hope I find some good ones here.

Thanks for help.

Toothbrush and time would be my guess :)

I would try,of all things,BBQ cleaner that comes in a spray bottle...or oven cleaner....all used with a toothbrush and with water available to rinse off...

simple green or equivalent and a toothbrush is how it's done.

bigger question? why is it all chewed up and why is a sprocket nut missing?

What is simple green?

Answer on a bigger question:
Because the chain was totally worn, and I was 1000 miles from home. I had to teighten it up every 100 miles, and twice the chain still fell off the the sprocket, while driving, so it cought in and chew everything.

So my winter project is to clean the hub, change the chain, sprockets, and nuts (one is missing, because I put it off and have it with me as a sample, to buy new ones).
I also intend to remove spikes off the rim, clean the spikes, polish and colour the rims, because they are looking pretty exhausted also from lots of scratches. (driving in the mud(where is a lot of small stones mixed in it) is hell for the rim).
I mean this kind of mud, when mentioning damaged colour on the rim...




Anybody already has experience with removing spikes and more importantly, putting them back on the rim as it should be?
My pa says I will never put things together again :)
That makes me even more determined. He should learn by now, I CAN do some stuff, HA!

Cleaning the hub?
I will try with oven cleaner/degreaser, but I am afraid, to make reaction with the aluminum.
Any experiences or this is wild guess?

Simple green and a toothbrush as was mentioned earlier is the best way.
