We’re not very big fans of any of the “instant” wheel cleaning products or the specialized motorcycle wash formulas (don’t know what else to call them).Nothing seems to work as well as basic liquid automobile wash mixed with water and a soft sponge. The dirt and grime that gets caked on motorcycle wheels often needs some physical persuasion to remove.
These products promise an easy and painless way to clean motorcycle wheels, but none of them work as well as we expect.
In our opinion, the S100 Wheel Cleaner is very expensive for what it is: basically a type of detergent for cleaning motorcycle wheels. The sprayers on both bottles we’ve tried only works when held perfectly upright. Pumping the sprayer can quickly get tiresome.
We haven’t noticed any spectacular results with this product and will stick with hand washing with a sponge and soapy water.
