Cleaning the 106 engine

Here is my problem I have my bike apart in my basement for mods and a good cleaning. I bought some S100 to do the powder coat and cylinder fins. Unfortunatly I read the can when I got home and found it is highly flammable. Since my bike is parked beside my oil furnace using this product would not be a good idea.

Can anyone suggest a good alternative??

Thanks.

S100 is good stuff. The propellant would be flamable but you really don't put that much into the air with the nozzle.If your uncomfortable shut the furnace down when you spray it on your parts.The wifes hair spray is probably more volatile.

Roll the bike outside, clean it, then roll it back in.

Please add your bike's year and model to your signature. Here's why.

This is Ontario Canada not California cold as hell. I have to remove both patio doors to get it in and out so it is a twice a year thing. Any other products do a good job?

Bike Spirits; but I don't know about the flammability of it. You can Google it to find a place to look into it.

Pig Spit works great on the engine and any powder coat.

Get the S100 in the pump bottle instead of the aresol spray. That, of simply turn off the furnace during the small amount of time you are actually spraying. Won't be that long, maybe 5 to 10 minutes.

This may not help at all but what I use, I got from a relative that does car detailing. Looks just like Armor All, it came in a gallon jug, pour into a spray bottle, spray the motor down that clean up the over spray and the motor looks good. This stuff brings the shine back with out the dirt attracting oil base of the other products. Lasts most of the summer.

May be just as flammable, but Sea Foam makes a spray called Deep Creap that is the best cleaner and lube I have found. Brake cleaner is another but it too may blow your house away. I have also found that the no scrub tire foam makes a good all purpose cleaner without a lot of work, but check to see what kind of metal it may affect.

Easier to just move south. (I'm riding tomorrow)
