Here is my two cents:

When they came off the bike, they were two muddy filthy oily gas stankin pigs. So I figured that I should at least blast the outers with some cleaner and scrub the crusties before I boxed and shipped them. If I didn't, the fumes from the crud stuck to them would have set off UPS's vapor detectors and my shipment would have been rejected. So externally, yes they could have been dirtier to start.

But I think they look (and hopefully operate) a hell of a lot better than when they got to my garage.

Thanks Corey!

Corey, if you doctored hydroseal and possibly added more lye than necessary

Add water

The acetone will evaporate away and quickly.

The very caustic stuff I save for wickedly plugged jets or to quickly find out if a cancer patient is terminal

You'll see them soon enough as not all of them will just be with easily squirted away varnish.

It's easy enough to see that the ones you did showed early stages of the death chalk and were already externally stained.
