The front wasn't bad, but the rear is covered in grease/chain lube. I used gas on a rag for the black rims on my CBR, but after doing a small test spot with a white rag on the red rim, I noticed it was picking up a little of the color.

Does anyone know of a good way to get that crap off?

I find that for the rear rim with the all the build up degreaser is your best bet and dilute it in a bottle a part degreaser and 5 part water. Stay away from anything corrosive that would damage the paint. That is what I did for my08' 600rr. After that you should look in to getting some sealant or wax to make it easier to clean off next time around.

the rims are painted though

simple green might be too harsh

Just head to your local auto store and buy rim cleaner to be honest.. Its safe on mag, aluminum, steel, chrome, paint.
My dealer told me that the red rims are powder coated ...that's why the price for the arctic white Duc is with $300 more than the ducati red one ...I don't know if powder coating is better/stronger as finish ?
