Me and my girlfriend where washing my bike today at her house. We were almost done, and i step inside, when i come back out i find that she has pub armor all tire foam on my tires!! What can i do? Ive heard the horror stories of puts armor all on. Is there any way to remove it? How bout some sandpaper? These tires are basically brand new....how can i save them?? Um you can see the armor got to the edges of my tire....im not gonna lean hard for a while.

How can i remove thie crap??!!


PS. I gave her a thorough lesson in armor all. But what can we do now?

Use brake cleaner and a rag, not carb cleaner. Just don't hit your chain, if you do re-oil your chain afterward.

I think all you need to do is take it easy for awhile as if they were just new. They use silicon as a mold release from the factory.

Here's more: http://sbw.sportbikes.com/showthread...hlight=silicon

A few ccs short of a full litre.

The "Tire Cleaner" stuff actuall is made to strip old "Tire Dressing" off. If you spray them down with the cleaner and scrub a little, it should come right off.
