    does anybody know any good cleaning chemicals for throttle plates? i have gsxr itbs and the throttle plates look like they are rusted(not actually rusted; but fucked up coloring...dark spots and stuff). i tried carb cleaner and degreaser but none of them worked. also i notice when it was drying the throttle area got "ashe", especially the throttle plates.

    btw, how do you get rid of the smell of race fuel?

    best solution is a buffing wheeling and just knocking the crud off.
    The other solution is a hot tank but i won't tell yuo how to do that its just way to fucking dangerous for most do it your selfers

    problem is i cant get the acutal throttle plates out so buffing wheel wont fit. i had already tried taking them out but stripped the screws so i just said fuck it. the throttle plates appear to be copper, and my cousin said vineger can be used to clean pennies, which are also copper. you guys think i should do that?

    B-12 ChemTool, works the best, imo. Sometimes you need to let it soak in for a little while.
