I used turtle wax bug and tar remover. Worked excellent and didn't harm wheels at all. Spray on rag an wipe down and wash bike like you normally would(or wipe with a dry rag, but this will leave a "oily feel/look" but doesn't harm but I recommend to wash at least with water)
Also let me add, PLEASE if there is dirt on wheel's just rise with water first so that when you wipe off chain lube you do not "swirl" up the clear coat on wheels with dirt that's on the surface. Similarly to when you detail a car or even your bike.

Using WD40 or similar is also good. It keeps the surface with a oily film that makes everything just fall off when cleaning. Helps keep sticky stuff like chain lube and tar from sticking on. You can use it on your mufflers too.

Plexus, S100, and water are all you really need to clean a bike (plexus will remove the chain wax like it's butter). BMW_388 is our resident plexus pro.

I use WD40 on all my other motorcycle wheel, these being carbon fiber and looking so awesome, I didnt know what WD would do to them. I dont want to mess the finish up lol.

Sorry I was wrong. It's not "turtle wax bug an tar remover" it's made by "Rain X bug and tar remover" just used it again today.

Ouch! Costly mistake I'd say. I also learn the "costly way" after spending $10,000 USD on a paint job for my car. Had to wet sand it a week later an clear again because the swirls were to deep for a buff. grrrrrrrrrr.
