cleaning solvent

  1. Got oil on my riding pants

    General Motorcycle Discussion
    I just splashed some (not completely clean) engine oil on my riding pants. What should I use to get it off? I have gasoline, I have kerosene, I don't have paint thinner, but I can easily get some. They aren't leather; they're that thick kind of stitching, by Nitro.
  2. What counts as a "cleaning solvent" for an air filter?

    General Motorcycle Discussion
    I have this manual for my motorcycle, and it tells me that to clean the air filter I should use a "cleaning solvent". That's all. What should I be using in this case? Is dishwasher detergent good enough?
