Alloy cleaner

Is there a product out there for cleaning the engine cases and drive shaft on my old K100RS...? There wasn't anything when I used boxer twins as a courier in the 70s and 80s...should I just be happy that the cases are now the same colour as my hair....or has some whizz-bang product surfaced during my 20yr absence from bikes.....?

Those were the days when I cleaned my visor with tooth paste and rinsed off, any way if the alloy has powdered white try some wet & dry first.:smile
