WD Clean - Trail Tips - Dirt Rider Magazine

By Jim Hartman, Pittsburg, PA
Most riders think of a light aerosol like WD-40 as a lubricant, and it is, but it can be a great cleaner as well. Nothing works better for removing chain lube fling from rims and swingarms. It works great for cleaning two-stroke drool off your bike, too. If you're cleaning anywhere near the brakes, spray it on a rag or paper towel instead; brakes don't like it.
