I had my bike sitting and I noticed a small puddle of oil underneath the oil pan so While in the process of investigating the cause of the problem I learned about a new gadget in m/c repair I learned the word "heliocoil" as in My heliocoil was vastly misshappened which caused the small oil drip. well while trying to figure how to repair this (at the time I thought it was a spring to tention the drainage bolt) it went really bad so now I am going to have to do a complete oil chage as I have no oil in the bike after the damn thing strectched on me (the heliocoil that is) so now today I am looking for a replacement and I figure might as well go synth while I am at it . ok now quit laughing this is the serious part......

what is the best, safest, most non-damaging to the tire compound way to get oil off the tires????:confused

WD-40








J/K When I had oil all over my tire from my lowside, I used a mild detergent like Dawn (takes grease out of your way:D ) and water. I used a stiff bristled brush and went to town on it. Now, it didn't go away completely, but I didn't have a problem riding it once I got it up and going. That's my recommendation.

Simple Green. Works great on racetracks, too. Just be sure to rinse well!

Well I got a fix for the heliocoil but I have to redo it the oil is fine for the clutch I had the synth in the basement was going to go synth awhike ago but got lazy so since the heliocoil issue I said screw it it may make a good selling point. I am still undecided I want a new bike but to sale this one feels like I am letting the bike beat me so I may wait until april or may to sale that way I can finish repairing it. Why repair it then sell it because I feel like I am not finishing what I started by selling it now. I have this thing about finishing what I start (I know bad habit :laughing) so I did pull the thread down not to mention I want the person after me to enjoy the bike not have a mixed season like me I enjoyed the bike very much but could have enjoyed it more if it was less mandatory matainance need on it at the most inconvient times :laughing
