If your finances can run to it then try Sdoc 100 (Gel) Now I have retired I have been trying cheaper products and have to accept you get what you pay for.
However, I attended the Dirt Bike Show a couple of weeks ago and was given a free 1 Litre sample of new to the market cleaner in a spray applicator. The guy on the stand told me he had been in the chemicals business for over thirty years designing commercial cleaners for vans and trucks but this is his first involvement with bikes
His company sponsors a young moto cross rider and was asked to develop something for removing dirt and clay from their bikes that would not attack aluminium and plastic. It’s not designed for removing grease or oil and for me that’s a positive as it leaves the grease where I put it.
I used it on my ST1300 a couple of times and have been impressed with the finish on the Pan after both applications. I have yet to try on the CT or the off road bikes but I’m confident I will get the same results as the Pan.
I’m not involved with this company in any way but thought you may be interested in a new alternative that I feel is worthy of my support.

I ordered 5 litres yesterday with a 25% discount and free postage, it arrived first thing this morning along with 2 free applicators.
PS I hate wire wheels on a road bike.
