    Bar Keepers Friend | Cleaning Products | Household Cleaning Supplies I know this is an old post, you may try this with a soft tooth brush and flush with hot water, the problem being the aluminum is very porous and stubborn to give up stains

    Don't know if this will apply to a bike but when I drove a truck we'd use a light acid to clean off all the stains from fueling . You could try that.
