Advice Wanted: Matte Black
I shouldn't have done it but took my Shaker to the dealer for service.
When I got her home I see oil on the shaker scoop and black spoiler.
Just where the tech touched it with a rag or hand...

Any ideas on how to easily remove the stain before I put on Areo 303?

Try Dr. Beasley’s. I used it on my matte motorcycle all the time, with good results.

I would use charcoal lighter fluid.

Something paint safe like Gyeon Prep would likely work

Super Clean will do it. I buy it in gallon container then mix up 2 spray bottles. One mixed 1 part Super Clean & 1 part water, the other 1 part Super Clean & 3 parts water. One or the other works well for most cleaning situations.

Thanks for the replies!
i was hoping to use something i already have on hand....

Called the dealer and they said glass cleaner?
not sure if that is a good route or not.

I have rubbing alcohol, WD 40, brake cleaner, dawn, and carb cleaner and most other cleaners on hand.
Also the Areo 303...

I was going to suggest PineSol, but Dawn dish washing soap would be a safe thing to try.

I would be afraid to use brake cleaner or a carb cleaner. You don't want to tarnish the paint.

Tub-O-Towels is great for that. Safely cleans much more than just hands. Took some tar off my fender like a charm.

I would go with the Dawn.
