Miles Used: Several washes
Hailed as a jack-of-all-trades cleaner from the filtering pros at K&N;, it was only after speaking with a customer tech that we discovered just how versatile this slick solution is. Although designed as an air-filter cleaner, it’s been proven to clean cotton products, painted surfaces, chrome, rubber, vinyl and most surfaces found on modern sportbikes just as easily.
Wondering if it was too good to be true, I gave it a go during a recent wash and found that it not only cleaned the grimy wheels packed with dirt and chain lube, but it also whisked away the dirt on the rest of the bike without hurting the finish. To be fair, it had to soak on the wheels for nearly five minutes to break through the muck, but given the time it’ll cut through to the finish.
Putting it to the test, I even cleaned the floormats in my truck and as noted; it scrubbed away a good majority of the stains. Not to be confused with a spray polish that’s shot on and wiped off, the Power Kleen needs to be sprayed off with water after it’s been applied. Think of it as a better form of Simple Green that was specifically designed for the motorsports industry.
Like all enthusiasts, an all-purpose cleaner that’s easy on most finishes is crucial to a complete garage and the K&N; Power Kleen hits all of the marks right between the eyes; it’s affordable, effective and easy to use.
