Binary Jay said:Don't worry about getting brake cleaner on any of the painted parts down there, I soaked my new calipers in it to clean them after receiving them and nothing came off. The paint on the calipers and forks seems to be invincible to brake cleaner and even brake fluid. Yeehaw.
I seem to have experianced the same ..... I usually just spray some brake cleaner right into the calipers every now & then + wipe down the rotors with it. So for not one bit of paint has come off and no ill effect of getting the cleaner right on the pads.
