    If I remember correctly isn’t Jizer a powerful engine degreasing agent from years ago, not something I’d recommend if it is what I’m thinking as it breaks down oil and grease, when all you need to be removing is the mud.

    Jizer would penetrate bearing/grease carrying components and oil bearing components with a detrimental effect.

    That’s all if I remember correctly, it’s a been a few years since I’ve seen Jizer.

    Sorry Marty, didn’t see this bit, I’d still wonder about using it tough, what does anybody else think.

    TBH……i wouldnt think it would do much harm……sometimes its best to remove any grease/oil from the chain (example) as it also washs out the bits of grit.

    Dont think i would advise the use of a pressure washer on it tho because like you said it would push the degreaser inside parts that you dont want it in.

    Sorry, that’s what I meant, pressure washes or even powerful hosepipe can drive the degreaser into parts and that’s what does the damage. It’s just also that my memories of Jizer were from 40 odd year ago and boy was it strong stuff back then. Probably had all that regulated out of it now under C.O.S.S.H.
