a wire toothed brush will help the chain. then do the regular cleaning prep before regreasing it.

my kids stay outside in the weather 24/7. Dont forget to grease the ignition and fuel lock... would suck to break off a key trying to open an empty gas tank at a station in the middle of no where.

Yup, your rotors are fine, and the rust will come off when you hit the brakes. If ya just really want to clean them, go over them with some Scotch-Brite.

Your chain is probably justa little bit of surface rust. Give your chain a good cleaning and lube it. If you have a grunge brush, or something of the sort, use it. As long as you don't leave the rust sitting on there too long it's not a problem.
