Your results look great traileater! I have read several threads of folks using pine
sol or simple green in their ultrasonic cleaners, we actually use the carb clean
Yamaha sells in our ultrasonic but always open to options!

I've never heard of pine oil based cleaners like Pine Sol but need to try getting some if that is how well they work!

I actually just finished soaking the case halves on my cr125 last week worked great for cleaning the grease in all those tight and hard to get spots

So the HF ultrasonic cleaners actually have enough power? I was always sceptical because of the price. Theres a service outside of my area that offers u/s cleaning, $25/carb, but theyre machine cost them over $10k!

Latley for some of the ugly cleaning, I drop them off at a local engine rebuild shop and they clean them for free.... things like cases and cylinders that are heavily coated with oil and exhaust residue. Doesnt get them %100 but damn near.

I still like the pine sol for carbs and parts degreasing....super hot water mix works best.

Never heard of that one I personally use Maxima SC1 “new bike in a can” it works wonders and smells like cherries oddly enough.

You must use original pine sol, not the ones with different scents. It has Glycolic Acid in it that the others don't have, which is why it cleans so well. Been using this for years to clean carbs.
