Yesterday I was cleaning my ST4, and noticed that the paint of the rear wheel is flaking off. Of course the rear rim collects the most road grime, oil, chain lube, dirt, etc, so it is the most difficult part to clean so I normally use detergent (for dishwashing), a sponge, and/or WD40. And water under pressure. Is it the water pressure which blows off the paint?? I >saw< the paint flaking off as I went over it with the water but I find this strange... I'd rather think the paint was already damaged by something (acid? wd40?)
Has anybody experienced this before? I'll post pictures asap.

I haven't seen any wheel paint problems on the two Monsters and one ST2 I've owned. But there is no way I would use high pressure water on a motorcycle. Too many places that high pressure water can get into where it doesn't belong.
