your final drive housing and it stained it….. :dopeslap:

 

What would you use to try to remove such stain. (white in color), or am I stuck with this..

 

I tried Simple green motorsports, but that didn't do anything.

Dirt? Oh wait - you said "remove" - I just cover everything on my bike with a fine layer of rain-caked silt. Makes for a nice, easy to maintain finish :)

That could be a tough stain to remove. You might have actually discolored the paint itself so it is not a stain but actual paint damage.

 

Was it just Brake Clean or was there brake fluid involved there also?

Yeah. I use brake cleaner to clean a lot of stuff off the drive. I know it's a bit harsh on finishes. But, I bet the stain was from something else.

I used brake cleaner without the applicator (straw) on the can, and got some on the drive end. I didn't notice it until later , not wiping it off ! And it dried on there..

 

No brake fluid.

Assuming normal brake cleaner then that stuff usually evaporates into nothing-left so my long range guess is the brake cleaner actually ate away some of the outer paint layer.

 

Maybe try some auto polish or even a little non aggressive rubbing compound to see if that will partially restore the underlying paint finish.
