Getting chain lube off paint

What' the trick?? I bought a bike with 300 miles and there is white synthetic lube all over the left side of the back tire, and on the undertail. I alread tried scrubbing with soap/ water but it didn't do much. I know I can get it off with brake cleaner or goop off but I do not want to mess up the finish on the paint. Any suggestions??

i've used brake cleaner and paraffin/kerosene on the underside of my tail section on the left hand side to get black chain lube spots off, paint work was fine.

just sprayed a bit onto a tissue and wiped off. can use water to rinse off after or just a tissue with some water.

done this for years and nothings happened to oem paint work on any bikes/scooters i've had

WD-40. Spray some on a rag, then wipe lube off. Never had any problems.

+1 for brake cleaner. I've used it on all my fairings when removing the decals and all the left over adhesive.

Was about to say WD-40 as well. WD-40 is wonderful to remove stubborn stains, especially bug and tar stains. I couldn't get a stain off of my helmet until my mother recommended WD-40 and it worked like a charm. She's a chemist.

Hey ask your mom what the best all around snow and summer tire and if the asymmetrical tread pattern will effect my gas mileage.

She says Michelin because of the commercials and it won't affect your gas mileage but apparently it can affect cornering stability?

If you need anything else to ask my mom she went to bed so I snuck downstairs to play call of duty and ate the cookies she told me not to eat for Thanksgiving.

I use Pledge furniture polish or the cheap Dollar Store brand to get chain lube of my wheel and paint. It also works to get grease off of my hands to.

kerosene works well but I only use it for my chain. I just don't like getting it on my hands because I could forget and light up a cigarette...haha. I use simple green for the tough stuff.

Muc-Off

I use Muc-Off Degreaser which works very well. It's also water soluble, biodegradable and safe to use on paintwork and carbon fibre.

Had the same problem with my bike - 12 with the white wheels. Lots of black spots on the rear. Tried everything and finally used wax! Worked like magic, just wiped it off! Was going to wax the wheel (painted part not the tire) anyway to make cleaning easier. After I cleaned it with Maguires went back with Rejex for added protection.

My friend with the white 1098S uses Muc-Off all the time. He swares by it.
I'm afraid to use it because of my black paint.

I just envision wiping it off and having the bugs and dirt scratch the crap out of my paint

Fire!!! Soak area with gasoline, work it into the grim. Wipe away broken up grim. To remove excess set on fire and your done.

It's completely safe to use on any colour paint work and carbon fibre so you should not have any problems.
