Thanks for the pics, looks like you've done a great job. Mine currently looks like the before pics - I never quite kept on top of the crap that built up over a few years of winter commutes - might need to give the petrol a go.

Cheers, It definitely works and is a lot cheaper than using cans of degreaser or similar, I just gave it a wipe over with WD40 after and that gives it a nice shine.

very nice work! I haven't disassembled many of mine just to clean them, but, if I'm removing some of that for a repair, then I go ahead and will remove more bits and clean everything. Also nice to grease swingarm pivots, and other areas you might not normally service on a regular enough basis.

At 30k , you might have thought of a new shock , I replaced mine at a lower mileage and the difference in the comfort and handling is amazing.....

What rear shock did you upgrade too?
