Specially formulated for the suspension industry professional
Unbeatable for suspension cleaning. Removes all oil and dirt film with a spray, a wipe, and another spray. When they say dries completely they mean it. Also somehow leaves it dry without picking up any water or making water condense.
Pretty strong smell of an aromatic compound (google that) so I’d keep your hands away from it. Does not evaporate well if you have any of it as standing liquid though so use sparingly and in a well ventilated area.
Maxima stays consistently good and this product is no exception. Didn't even use half of the bottle on my YZ250F's forks, and it cleaned everything so easily and effectively. Happy about this purchase!
This stuff is amazing, i use it on just about everything that i need oil off of. Engine's, suspension, carbs everything! I just rebuilt a cr250 engine for a customer and it looked like he never bothered to change the trans oil. Cleaned up everything with ease!
I bought this product thinking I might have found a less expensive version of PJ1 Super Cleaner and it ships fast. It cleans pretty well, along the lines of hot water and Dawn dish soap, or acetone which leaves a film. It doesn't not remove some oils from surfaces (still visible), washing others away. This is due to hexane and it's solvating properties.
I've been working on vehicles 40 years including nearly a decade of professional shop in San Francisco on high end bikes where one doesn't just spray "carb cleaner" like Winder. Some chemicals work well with little or no side effects- this isn't one of them. Maxima claims "trade secret" in the MSDS, listing Hexane as 60-100% by volume, and 1-5% carbon dioxide. Hexane causes damage to all parts of the nervous system.
Many reviews talk about "how good it smells", meaning they are inhaling it to some degree. This is one of the first products I have used in many years that has a definite, noticeable effect on me. I use fans to direct fresh air across my work areas when soldering or spraying chemicals, and I'm still dizzy & disoriented after using this stuff. Use caution, wear gloves, read the MSDS.
Maxima's product is about half the cost of PJ1 Super Cleaner, but you don't need much PJ1 and it works better, including creating the cleanest base/head gasket surfaces you've ever seen.
Great for cleaning Forks and shock parts. However the nozzle will leak when spraying. I thought it was just a defective nozzle but all the ones I ordered were the same. If you press the nozzle all the way down it sprays hard and fast and wont leak bit uses alot of the product. Only leaks when barely pressing the nozzle button to keep from spraying so much product. Drys fast and leaves no residue.
Maxima suspension clean is my new goto contact cleaner.
This stuff works amazingly well, just went through my forks and linkage and it cleaned up everything with ease and no residue. The smell is awesome they should make car air fresheners that smell like this! Overall a great product
Awesome stuff! We rebuild a lot of forks and shocks and this stuff makes the job much more pleasant. Last thing you want in your suspension is grime and fibers from shop rags. This cleaner smells great and breaks up oil and dirt faster than other contact cleaners. More expensive than brake cleaner but worth it!
Used while doing a fork rebuild. Worked great on fork tubes, really doesn't leave any residue, but the best part is the smell. I wish I could get an air freshener for my car in this scent - no joke. Get some and you'll find yourself using it unnecessarily just to smell it.
I redone my sons suspension and not really knowing if regular cleaners would harm any of the seals i bit the bullet and purchased this product. I was shocked at how well it removes grease and oil and it doesnt have a harsh smell like most cleaners do. I have since used it for many other cleaning job other than suspension.
It cleans great cuts grease and oil immediately, the only thing is that it dries super fast and need to be generous when cleaning running out fast of the product. Delicious smell, I will use it like deodorant if I could.
Man I love this stuff. Very gentle on parts and skin and does a great job cleaning out oil from your shocks and forks. Hit it with this and a shot of air and you have brand new looking internals. On top of that it smells awesome.
I saw this product used in a KYB rebuild video on youtube. I laughed, thinking he was paying a premium for glorified contact cleaner. However I noticed the price wasn't far off from the contact cleaner I normally use, and I ordered a can because I needed to spend $7 more to get free shipping.
I was wrong. This stuff works. I'll be using on suspension rebuilds from now on.
Worked great for cleaning suspension parts when changing fork seals. No residue. The parts looked like new. I also used it on the outside of the forks to remove old glue residue from old decals. This stuff is great!
Used this to clean the inside of my CRF 450 forks, before I poured new oil into it. To be perfectly honest, the used fluid didn't come out very dirty to begin with, and just looking at the inside of the tubes I didn't found any debris either. Regardless, I sprayed it all over with the Suspension Clean, let it drip and dry, and it did looked like new. So I guess it works...
I revalve and rebuild my own forks. My 2008 KTM 250 XCW took a few tries to get it right. No problem, Maxima's Suspension Clean does a great job without concerns about seal degradation. No nasty smell. I recommend this product.
