Like the others have said the same wash you do the bike with and rinse them off then dry them with a bath or microfiber towel. I polish them every two mths. Any tar, you can use WD40, most white spirits or eucalyptus oil. The only downfall with white spirits is you should polish the wheels again. By washing the wheels regally you won't get the build-up of hard to remove brake dust or pitting.
If you use dish soap, remember to keep it off of any bodywork. The grease-cutting gents will strip the wax. Has several have mentioned above are use regular car wash soap and get the tough stuff off with WD-40. I am a big fan of the gunmetal gray wheels on my bike they don’t show the dust and grime as bad as black or silver.
When I take my wheels off to get the tires changed, I clean them thoroughly with Goo Gone and then rinse them off really well. Nothing else I've found gets the adhesive from the previous wheel weights off so easily.
Are you able to use this with the bike on the center stand? Curious if that would work on a B. The lower stance may be an issue. I can see the rear tire hitting ground before the front wheel paddock gets over-center.

So as you read on the title thread, today I was contacted by one of the lead Engineers for the NHTSA. We had an hour long conversation about the 18+ K1600 Models. He informed me that there is an official open government investigation on BMW and ask me about my thoughts on the bike and my...
I have a 2019 Grand America. Recently I test rode a new Gold Wing at Daytona bike week. I was very impressed so for fun I started following some Gold Wing sites. There were some people on those sites that traded their K1600s for the new Gold Wing. So I’m wondering if anyone here has had the...
This is the first I've heard of this...focused on complaints from 6 owners: https://static.nhtsa.gov/odi/inv/2019/INOA-PE19002-8419.PDF
Not sure if its related to the left pull some seem to experience or this is something new.
Seems to be limited to 2018 & 2019 models..."B"s?
