    I accidentally let some water resistant grease go into my cycles front disk break. I now ask for advice on how to remove it?

    Can you get access to the disk that would allow you to remove it manually?

    If not can you use heat (a blow torch maybe if there are no plastic parts in the vicinity) combined with soap and water to flush it out.

    Seems dangerous to ride the bike until you have fixed it.

    Chlorinated brake parts cleaner, if you can get it. Don't breath the vapor or spray it in your eyes. Non-chlorinated might work, spray a whole bunch on. Once again, limit personal exposure to these products.
    I was some of the mud that got to sit up and look around.
    Lucky me. Lucky mud.
