any ideas?

i heard about using etching MAG cleaner on aluminum parts, and i will probably pick some of that up, but is that safe for the paper thin aluminum on a radiator? any other tips/tricks for me?

right now i have an assembled frame, swingarm, and engine, along with a pile of YFZ parts in my basement, lol, im getting her all clean for next season :D

I've used acid it works great. Just the crap you can get for detailing your car. After that I got tired of cleaning it, I took it to the media blast and looked brand new and sprayed it with semi gloss. trial and error I guess
