please dont use WD-40 to remove the lube (wd-40 is a lube of sorts). OMG, you guys wanna get this guy killed once he leans it over in a turn? dish soap, wash the tire, some degreaser and scrub it, then rinse off and it will be good as new.
Slight over reaction, as if any biker would want to kill another, but yes your correct all residue should be removed
If Carsberg make one I'll have mine shaved.
I have 2 toys one is my bike the other smells of fish
