    Front caliper / rotor are contaminated with HD fork fluid...The brake pads dont appear not to be contaminated. The system brake fluid is Silicon DOT 5.

    What cleaning agent can I use to get rid of the fork fluid off the caliper /rotor.

    Thanks in advance

    I have just used brake cleaner. Shouldn't bother anything. Just spray on and hose off with water, thentake it out for a ride. Brakes might fade a couple of times until you heat them up and they dry off

    Agree with the brake cleaner, just keep it away from rubber and plastic parts. Some of it will deform things.
