Get a supermoto. Then it won't matter. You will be trying to slide it on new/old/decrepit/sticky/awesome/sucky tires.

Using the precations the original poster cautioned, Methyl Ethyl Ketone works even better! It's also great for taking the dead rubber off the sidewalls of your cage. Makes 'em look like new.

I used a wood rasp and scrubbed the edges of the tire, just enough to remove the slick layer. I didnt bother with the center of the tire.

Default Re: To scrub-in your tires....

I tinks dat youse should just takes it e-z for da first fitty miles likes dese guys be's sayin'......but one ting I likes ta do wit da front tire FIRST TING is ta drags da front brake wit da bike upright - Be careful, just squeeze dat front brake till it feels like it's startin ta brakes loose, then hold it dere for a sec or tree. You'll feel it get better grip, then squeeze dat front brake a bit harder, repeat until it feels like it'll stop quick. Dis way at least ya can stop da bike upright incase of an emergency stop in da first fifty miles er so.

The method I used on my Diablo's was a little bleach and a nylon bristled scrub brush. Was the front and rear tire with bleach and water to get rid of some of the release compond on the tire (still take it easy for the first 50mi. or so). Worked for me!

This should be listed under the extreme riding movie clip. Sorry for the error.

Simple Green and a nylon scrub brush. Rinse thoroughly. Enjoy.
