cleaning caked on mud & corrosion from metal parts?

I stripped all the plastics off my Honda foreman I just purchased. It's fairly low hours. Only 75 hours with 480 miles. I notice the inside of the plastics and parts have a pretty good amount of caked on mud. I've been using orange clean degreaser thus far and it's done a decent job of taking off most of the crud. I've noticed the exhaust has a pretty good amount of corrosion, rust and baked on mud. The engine and crank case have a good amount of baked on mud as well minus the rust and corrosion. Can I use clr or some other type of solvent to help break down this stuff and scrub it off?

I've used pine sol on dirty carbs...never mud as he is describing. Wd40 and elbow grease as described above. If you do try out the etching sheen cleaner please update us with the results! Also, wal mart brand scrubbing bubbles (green can w/ yellow top) works wonders on all kinds of stuff and is worth trying.

I need to rip the header and muffler off this weekend as well... Both have substantial mud baked on as well as rust/corrosion. should be a good time with chemicals and a wire brush.

Skip the wire brush and pick up some 000 and 0000 steel wool.
