I found that this stuff works amazingly well at quickly cleaning grime and dirt off wheels (and pretty much everything else), leaving it shiny and protected:

Will it clean the black brake dirt off the front of the lower end of the forks? yes, I took off the left side cover to rtake off the speedo cable, and it is all "gunky" there.

I don't have a pic but Gunk "foaming" de greaser will take everything off and rinses off with water. Cleans tires also.

If it's greasy/oily, I'll usually use brake cleaner to take the majority of it off, then use the Honda cleaner to finish it up.
