Whats the best way to remove that slick, slimy residue on new tires? I have a new Dunlop 120/70/17R Sportmax front tire and i need to get rid of the residue. I know some of you have suggested taking it slow for the first 50 miles, but I'm not capable of that . So is there anything else i can do?



BTW, i remember someone saying something about sandpaper.[?]

211 works for me.
Put a new M1 on Sat and scuffed it in Sunday.
Take it easy for a couple of corners and you'll be fine.

If you are, as you say, not capable of taking it easy to scuff some tires.....my question is, do you really belong on a bike? Hell, even I can take it easy when necessary. :dissa:

Of course I can take it easy woody, I was only kidding, hence the silly smiley face

you simply ride it easy for the first hour or two... thats it...

nobody seems to understand this... one HOUR. thats all it takes, at any speed. heat + asphalt will remove it quickly.

Your talking about hopping on right after a major wreck and you cant simply take it easy for an hour? I dont believe you...

FYI: its not as touchy as you would think... even new tires arent that slick... unless your grinding pegs, youve probably never taken sport tires to their limit anyway. keep in mind I ran macadam 100 sport touring tires at three nesba trackdays and I was keeping up with guys running full on race tires... if you cant ride to 100% of the tires ability, having a slick new tire probably wont affect you anyway.

Plus I'll be sure to break it in for you just to make sure its safe, before handing the keys over.. BTW I'm good to go for one day this week, as I'm recovering nicely.

Usually takes about 4 or 5 good long wheelies to scuff it in. When it hit the pavement and turns to burn and the smoke flies off then you will be o.k.



J/K man take it easy for a bit and let it scuff itself.

Dont stand so close to the tire during releas and you'll have nothing to clean off.
