I got to check my gas station if they sell kerosene. I think they only sell Diesel.

do you have anything like a co-op there?
or a farm/industrial station?

and, diesel will work, even better(cheaper) if you can get the offroad diesel.

I never used it to clean before so I'm kind of skeptical on using it.

Special container to store it?
Does it damage paint?
Do I have to wear gloves?

a plastic jug works fine.

im not sure on paint, but i doubt it will hurt anything.
i wouldnt advise just leaving it on tho.
and, yes i would wear gloves.

but, its nowhere near as bad as GAS if it gets on your skin.

It will not hurt your paint. Even if you dont wipe it off. I usually wipe it off with a microfiber/paper (depending on how much you care about your paint - paper towels can be slightly abrasive) towel if I'm cleaning my wheels/fairings. It'll help get that last little bit of grime off as well as prevent dust and stuff settling and sticking to the kerosene.

It works great for road grime/brake dust/chain lube on your wheels as well as fairings. That hard to get road grime on your lower fairings just wipes away.

Diesel should be stored in a yellow container labeled Diesel. You can pick them up at any Walmart in the automotive section. Of course, you can store it a coffee can if you want to, but personally I'd put it in a properly labeled container. DO NOT put it in a red gas can unless you write DIESEL FUEL all over the can. It's inevitable that someone will dump it into a lawn mower or their car.

I use diesel to clean my bike chain, you can use a brush if bike chain is not so dusty. Rag is a little bit hard to use.

The proper, and universal, color coded container for diesel is Blue. Yellow is for Chlorine.
