Any one got chain lube on their rear tyre?

I cleaned and lubed my chain... had over spray as I did not block area correctly and smacked a load on my tyre... got a good bit off but noticed soem still there after my ride this evening...

Anyone done something as stupid as this any recommends for getting the tyre back!

Is that bad? I've gotten chain lube on my tire before and just wiped it with a rag, and I didn't notice any loss of traction.

If you're paranoid about it I would clean it with soapy water and if that doesn't get it off then maybe gasoline or kerosene. I use kerosene to clean my chain and it's great at cleaning lube.

It was a decent bit, I had a wipe off session with cleaning stuff this evening, got it off, tyre is just a little shiny, stockers still at 2600 miles... changing out soon...

I use kerosene to clean the chain and any overspray. It works on tires too.

Mike, don't use kerosene to clean the chain (see page 6-35 from User Manual):

Cleaning the drive chain improperly
can damage seal rings and
ruin the drive chain.
• Do not use a volatile solvent
such as paint thinner, kerosene
and gasoline.
• Do not use a high pressure
cleaner to clean the drive chain.
• Do not use a wire brush to clean
the drive chain.

Wow, didn't know that. Thanks! I've often Kerosene on my chains (that or VM&P Naptha). I guess I'll stick to the Dupont Chain Cleaner (o-ring safe).

I have over 70k on my hayabusa and this is only my third chain, always cleaned with kerosene.

I also use Dupont degreaser and Dupont chain saver/teflon. dries clear, no excess getting spun off. when I do it, I leave the bike alone for an hour for all the Teflon wax to dry. once I coat it, I just leave it on the stand and ride next day or later
