If I got some dot4 on my pads are they done or can they be saved?
m85476585 said:The LBS got something on my pads while servicing my fork, and after cleaning them with rubbing alcohol had little effect, I burned the stuff off by repeatedly riding down the steepest hill I could find, holding the brake and pedaling as hard as I could. (the back brake was still good, so I would have been safe if the front brake stared to fade). The rotor turned blue, but after that braking power was restored. The blue color of the rotor wore off a bit, but I haven't checked to see if it's completely gone after about a month of riding.
Simple Green (a multi purpose spray cleaner I would call it Spray and Wipe I think it is called Simple Green in the US) then a de natured alcohol wipe (again Metho in Aust)StumpjumperUK said:What about contamination by mineral oil - as used by Magura (Royal Blood) and Shimano? If I replace the pads, what the best way to clean the rotor?
