I have a new zx9r and they put so much frickin chain grease on the chain - it is all over everything now, especially the wheels. I have the new bike gitters - so whats a good cleaning product to use to get that nasty s--t of my wheels without hurting the paint? What about S100 cycle or wheel cleaner?

I had the same problem a couple month ago on mine.... you should almost strip the chain clean before you ride it off the lot. They put a damn pantload of that crap on there. The cheap solution for me was using some lighter fluid. It works great. I tried all kinds of wheel cleaners first to no avail. It was very annoying.

Try Simple Green, available in most cleaner sections of major stores. Works just like s100, only cheaper.

I found that the liquid hand cleaners that you use in the shop without the pumice works really well for taking off the grease....

I got a good tip off the ZRX board, use WD-40, I tried it and it works great on my 02 zx9 wheels, plus the next time it gets dirty it makes cleaning it off easier. Make sure to spray it on the rag and wipe the rim, don't try to spray it on the rim because you could get it on the tire, which would be bad.

I heard that S100 will break down the oil in your paint - is this true? Sounds a little paranoid.........

I tried the WD40 - works great - but if I scrubbed kind of hard - I notive that it would turn the cloth slightly red (my wheels are red) - so I'm afraid that it takes off the paint as well.............

Castrol super clean is the ticket... BUT*** you have to wipe it very quickly. Prolonged exposure will do damage to the paint. Also.. make sure to rinse it very well. Lighter fluid is not a terrific solution, it will eat the paint VERY quickly. As for WD40, Im always nervous liberally applying graphite lubricants anywhere near my tires... call me paranoid.
