Best way to clean a dirty greasy rectifier

Howdy, So my rectifier is all full of road tar, dirt, grime and chain lube...

So im thinking I could just spray it with CRC electronics cleaner and use a tooth brush and then wipe it off...

If not how do I clean it??..

Thanks

That will work.

I would start with a WD-40 myself, spay and let it soak. Grease cut's grease and doesn't evaporate. After 30 minutes, slight scrub and repeat.
Once clean then use the CRC.

The best products I've found to cut through that kind of gunk are these:

DuPont Motorcycle Degreaser

Motorex Chain Clean

Both of these work very well. The gunk almost melts off without even needing much scrubbing.

If your r/r lives where it can get soaked by rainwater, grease, and dirt....... it's designed to be weather proof. If you ever crack one open, they are a solid mass of epoxy with parts stuck in it.

Try and avoid the seals at the plugs..... other than that, have at it.

welp the CRC QD electronic cleaner worked well with a little help from the WD 40 and a tooth brush and a few q tips..After cleaning i wiped it off with a wet rag...

Don't inhale the crc stuff.
