I have the same problem as Canuck in the Chain Oil topic and have learned HEAPS from the replies! I used "Shell Advance" spray lubrucant on the chain being VERY careful not to oversray onto the rear tyre. Same as Canuck, i now find that the lube has flicked off all over the swing arm, rim and the rear tyre. I have tried to wipe it from the tyre, but (DUH!) this stuff STICKS! Please excuse my nubie riding experience here, but i'm now scared SH*TLESS of low siding next time i throw my bike into a left turn . . . Am i just being paranoid? is there something i can do to clean the tyre? Any advice is much appreciated! Thanks!
