    Edu,

    Did a 300 mile trip with 20 other Ducs on Sunday. The sound and performance are sickening :). Took me an hour to clean the white wheels today. Waxed the chain the night before the event and waxed the wheel... For some reason the chain wax and the wheel wax formed a sticky residue that is a SOB to clean off. Sooo, I might swap my white wheels with black ones.

    With all that torque in the rear wheel, some chain lube/wax is bound to fling on the wheel. White just makes it that much more visible.

    I use this for easy clean up of the sticky stuff: (spray on shop towel or paper towel and target the gummy stuff)

    Then finish it up with this: (Spray on micro fiber towel and whip down entire wheel)

    Only takes a minute or two to clean up. Even if the sticky stuff sat on the wheel for a week.

    But you should wax the wheels first and every once a while. It make clean up much easier.Posted Image

    Also, if you spray lube on your chain, make sure to wipe down the excessive stuff hanging on chain. It will cut down on junk that gets on your wheel.Posted Image

    Hey Psy,

    Used mcguire's wax on the wheels and chain wax the night before the ride. The right side was easy peasy to clean up, the left I will have to use that solvent you just mentioned. Thanks again :)

    Make sure you do wipe down the wheel with some other type of paint/plastic safe cleaner after you use the chain cleaner. It's a solvent designed to strip oil and wax such as their Chain Wax. I don't know what that stuff will do to your paint if left resting on your paint.

    Don't mean to disagree but you'd be better off using some Dow Foaming Bathroom Cleaner to get off the waxy lube and dirt. Solvents of any kind will eventually yellow the white wheel over a period of time. What happen is the solvent deteriorates the clear coat Use the Dow and wipe it down with a clean wet towel, then dry it completely. Just use some WD40 to clean the chain and then reapply your chain wax prior to cleaning the wheel or cover the wheel with a towel while lubing the chain.

    Not to mention it's far cheaper and effective.

    Used a light electronics component cleaner on a towel and removed everything like a charm. Rinsed it off with water afterwards and now shiny as Solomon's cock :) Thanks for all the advises, you guys rock!!!!
