    Oil on my disk brakes. How do I clean it?

    So I got a little oil on my rear disk brake from when I was lubricating my chain. My bike stops. But it takes alot longer. Don't feel safe for the mountain .. Does any one know what I can put to clean it?

    Re: Oil on my disk brakes. How do I clean it?

    First thing is if u get it on there clean it before u ride, cause now ur rear pads are contaminated and good chance they'll have to be replaced. Second is soap and water then wipe off with alcohol pad or spray off with automotive brake parts cleaner.

    How did u manage to get chain lube clr on the other side of ur bike?

    I used a spray lube. My mistake 😫. I think I'm just going to replace them. What do the brakes run?

    Clean the rotor with ispropyl alcohol and flame the pads. Use a torch or a gas burner until the oils burns aways (smoking stops).
