Oily rear tire
« on: Mar 31, 2019, 05:45 PM »
I have managed to get oil on the rear tire, AFC50, is there anything special that I should use to clean it off or will soap and water be okay?

I will be having toasted hot cross buns with butter whilst I await. Life is good.
I'm sorry, really bad reception here, you said your name was Dr. who?

Brake cleaner
I want to retire, no longer required,
I want to get by without the man on my back.

It always starts innocently enough, but it's a slippery slope...

Oily enough for me not to want to rag it! As it will be my first time back on the bike it might feel like Iím riding on slicks.
