    What would you like me to do MJH? You do not communicate well, to my comprehension anyway but thanks for responding.
    Some things you could suggest are harmful or difficult, so please keep it relevant to the posts? I would prefer some public (or private, your choice) resolution rather than just deletion.

    What's a)kerosine and b)mineral spirits also known as paint thinner(commercial name) in Chinese?

    Not really a motorcycle part, but still related somewhat. Clean your chain! But since the accident I'm not riding as much, just on the bicycle nowadays. Always two wheels of course!
    I need to clean the chain on my bicycle, and paint thinner seems to be better than WD40 for the job. Also kerosine seems to be another choice for the job.

    kerosene 煤油 | paint thinner 天拿水/ 香蕉水 | Diesel 柴油 are also very good for chain cleaning.

    Why is gasoline not good? Other than it's dangerous, catches fire easier than diesel or kerosine.

    You need to be careful of the O'rings; many strippers, thinners and gasoline may perish them. Lots of people use WD 40 and say it is fine but it is not recommended because it can get in and wash out internal lube behind the 0'rings. Whether these chemicals do actually hurt the rubber or not or whether they get in behind the O'rings and affect the manufacturer's lube set up is another matter - but I prefer safe to sorry as I do not want a chain sticking at 100 kph.

    Kerosene is said to be OK by the manufacturers and in the 'olden days' we used it as it also got into all the fine joints and gaps and acted as a lube itself - with O'ring chains the gaps are too fine for it to penetrate and wash out the existing 'lube but it cleans well and doesn't affect the o'rings.

    Can anyone tell me what a "high pressure switch - 高压… - gaoya…" is/does?

    I'll try to get the full chinese word for it later, when I pick up my bike.

    Here is a challenge ...

    dielectric grease

    How do I say / write that in Mandarin? I need to keep those electrical gremlins at bay. A taobao link would gain bonus marks!
