januar 2017 updated review: MOTOREX – BIKE CLEAN

Motorex is really as good as Motorex claims.

Removes dirt that no dish soap, I use it all over the my bikes

Cleans off Muc off dry and wet lubes.

I had no issues with cleaning dirty chain with Muc off wet lube on, wuith  Finish line Grunge Brush with Motorex bike clean  the chain was sparkly clean,but Muc off lubes are easy to clean off,with proper cleaners.

It feels dish washing soap or lube, so its important to rinse it off before a ride, if you use it on your brake pads or discs you will reduce the braking power if you don’t rinse it off.

I have used it Motorex bike clean to clean the brake discs and brake pads, but I rinsed it off well.

I can clean the whole bike with this product.(if there is not extremely sticky stuff on it)

no matter how dirt it was,mud,lube,and other things it removed it with no issue.

But If you want to remove good grease, you can’t with this product, you will have to use a a degreaser.

it works faster than finish line’s cleaner,I can use less of it.

it got a mild smell, does not stink extremely like some other stuff can do.

washing the drive train works well, compared to finish line cleaner,with finish line I had to use their degreaser which stink/smell horrible and still would not remove as well as Motorex’s bike cleaner.

Some stuff even the good cleaners and degreasers struggle with:

but it can’t clean the sticky shimano lube that has been my second fuel ex that has been indoors most of the time,and has been only ridden 3 times, and standing indoors for the rest of the time. but I tried re lubing it with Finish Line Dry lube, and that loosened up the chain and it now works like new.

Conclusion:

recommended Motorex’ cleaner,definitely worth a it.

Review Pro Care Bucket Kit 6.0 & brush set

Super bike wash:

Pros:

  • cleans fork that is brown from dirt with no issues,that dish soap can’t clean.20635176250_b5d8c7ce58_b
  • dries fast
  • can be used without water,the super wash does not have the dish washing  soap or lube feel effect like some other cleaners have (Motorex for example), it feels more like water.

Cons:

  • cleaning a well lubed chain with Finish line wet with lube full of dirt, will be a issue, and the multi degreaser can’t do the job either.the Multi degreaser got a strong stink.But after many months the stink is not strong any more.
  • works best on dirt only,I have tried Motorex & Muc off, the Motorex cleaner ,Both Muc off and Motorex works great and even faster than Finishline.

 

Dry Lube:

But here is where the Finish line Dry lube comes in, the second fuel ex has only been ridden 3 times, and had been standing indoors, without re-lubing. the Motorex could not do the job. but the Finish line dry lube loosened up the chain and now it works perfectly.

I have not tried to ride with this lube, but I assume it is perfect for dry conditions.

The only con of the lube is that it stinks,but you should not sniff lubes anyway.

 Wet lube:

the lube works very well, and does not attract much dirt, when you put too much on and don’t wipe off the excess it will not make ”spider-webs” on between the rollers and the chain. like Weldtite Extreme Wet lube does.

because the lube is not sticky the chain stays pretty clean no matter conditions, and is easier to clean that some other lubes like the extremely sticky lube on the Shimano chains.

Works well in the cold, I have been riding it in summer over 20 Celsius  down to -6 Celsius with out any issues

Multi Degreaser

the Multi degreaser got a strong stink.But after many months the stink is not strong any more, but you should not breath stuff like this anyway.

Pros:

  • not any pros that stand out

Cons:

  • cleaning a well lubed chain with full of dirt, will be a issue, and the multi degreaser can’t do the job either.
  • The Degreaser Works well, but It struggles with cleaning the lube/grease that come on KMC & Shimano.

Wax lube

I have never tried this lube, but after watching cannondany’s Shaibike’s video it’s clear that i will never buy it.

Brush set

The round paintbrush style brush & round small long brush works well for cleaning off tricky parts,

The brush with the hole, can be used for cleaning crank arms, but i can’t recommend using it for cleaning the brake disc rotor, because the brush can slip out of your hand and you can hit your hand on the sharp rotor,and hurt your hand.

Pros:

not any pros that stand out just does thee job done

Cons:

  • no rubberised grip
  • no rubberised brush body, which can result in scratches on frame or bike components

Grunge Brush

This is probably one of the best chain cleaning devices, unlike closed system witch are bit more time consuming, the Grunge Brush work as good as them but it is a simple solution, you can use it to clean the front chainring(s) and the cassette to, witch works great.
