WD-40, and then dish or car wash soap. Wax it after.

Also can use it on your black frame, swing-arm, and engine cases. Makes everything look really nice. Leaves a thin film after you wipe it off which helps preserve everything.

It should go without saying but be very judicious using WD40 around your tires and brake components.

Just playing a little lawyer-ball here. My cousin used to armor-all the tires on his R6, so there are people that might go a little crazy with the WD.

Sounds like you got it.
The wax helps a ton too.
I waxed my white Marchesini wheels, and they were 10x easier to clean after that.
