Cleaning the rotor for JB Weld

What is recommended for cleaning the rotor before throwing in some JB Weld to prevent Magnet migration?
Denatured Alcohol? Naptha? brake cleaner?

I have cleaned them with brake cleaner. Especially those that still have a magnet or two or three still in them, the blast from the brake cleaner tube gets into all the tight spots. I like to wipe them with alcohol after the brake cleaner.

When I reglued my magnets with JB Weld, I wanted to do ALL of them - so I had to remove a couple that were still bonded. I tried a paint stripper with a high concentration of methylene chloride and it didn't work at all. The best way to remove those stubborn magnets is with heat. Just use a propane torch and heat up the outside of the rotor next to the magnet, and the magnet will come off with ease. Then clean up everything and reapply the magnets with JB Weld - and try to get some JB Weld in the spaces between the magnets (not easy, as the epoxy is pulled towards the magnets - can make a bit of a mess).

Thanks Guys,

This a preventative maintenance job. The bike has less than 700 miles onit. I am going between the magnets and installing a series regulator.

What bike model and year do you have?

Pat- 2007 DL650A was ridden to all 48 contiguous states. I didn't quite make it to 17,000 miles on the 2012 DL650A.
Nicknames I use to lessen typing, Vee = 2002-2012 DL1000s. Vee2=2014-2016 DL1000s. Wee = 2004-2011 DL650s. Glee = 2012-2016 DL650s

Adding a very small amount of JB-Weld on the magnet ends where they contact the rotor and changing to a series R/R is probably time well spent. I would also change to a Werks modified clutch at the first sign of chudder. The disparity between Vee and Wee magnet problems make me think vibration is an issue.

Thanks Greywolf, I also plan to paste some between the magnets to further prevent migration. Trying to build a better beast...

The Werks basket from Realshelby is on my mod list also.

Don't overdo the JB-Weld. A small filet will stop the magnets from moving. Apply too much and the excess will be drawn up over the magnets as the epoxy is loaded with steel filings.

If you are having issues with the JB Weld getting out of the slots or just otherwise a sloppy job, wait about 1 1/2 to 2 hours after putting it in. It is starting to become more solid about then. Very easy to shape it with a razor blade and/or remove excess from where it shouldn't be! Main thing is try to get a fairly equal amount between each magnet.
