At my first track day, I made a mistake (?) of putting my bike on the Baxley immediately after the last session. I guess the tires were still too hot so it melted and got stuck on the chock ? I never had this issue before coming back from around town rides and putting it immediately on the chock.

When I got home, I couldn't get the two separated until I let some air out of the tires. The glossy section of the tire is where it contacted the chock.

The pictures pretty much shows the aftermath. A few questions.

1. Was I supposed to cool the tires down before putting them on the chock ?

2. How can I clean out the tire gunk left on the chock? Would rather not take a scraper to it and mess up the chock finish but that might be the only way.

3. Is the tires still usable ? Just take it easy the first session to scruff up that part of the tire ?







Thanks!

Tires are fine, the tire stuff will come off the chock with a rag and warm water, worse case scenario use some bug and tar remover.

Doh .. here you guys go .. courtesy of BARF member cycle61.

3) Your tire is fine. First good turn and that mark will be gone.

2) The smudge on the Baxley? I'd leave it, but Goo Gone or something will probably clean it up.

1) I've never managed to load up after a trackday quickly enough to find out.
