What are you trying to clean exactly? It isnt that difficult... A can of brake cleaner will cut through most brake gunk, then scrub it off with a brush or scuff pad and rinse it with water. If youve got crud in the holes of the disk, wet it down with brake cleaner then find a drill bit the size of the hole and push it through (by hand, NOT with a drill) to get the gunk out.

PS, what tracks are there in CR? I know some of the main roads are nice to ride through the mountains, but I never would have guessed there's a racing industry.

Make sure you use a mask, eye protection, and gloves.

The track is called autodromo la guacima, i have some videos on you tube, search atopetu17 , we only have one track but several options to run it, we have a good championship with 600 and 1000 categories, all stock, e also have guys coming from panama to race here, so it is fun!!! Thanks for the help!
