I would be wary of any tearoff or roll films, the amount of fine dust out there may get between the film and rub scratching the lenses and making it blurry and hard to see.
I have always just used a quick wipe either of my glove or a piece of cotton fabric attached in my wrist area that can be wiped across quickly.

I rate the women's anti static spray that (apparently) they use on stockings. Spray it on your lens, buff it off and its amazing how much dust doesn't stick. I also rate chapstick on the foam. Google prep is an absolute priority. If you have your own fuel stops, its worth having prepped googles at your stops to swap out. You need to be able to count on your crew to clean them for the run back however.

A big tall one. I have a 110/90 19 At81, of course im not racing but so far over the this year it has done around 700km of race track and road. Very tall and long foot print. Terrible for sharp turn but not something i need to worry about
Just check that your compressed height can fit the tyre under the rear guard. Mine rubs when bottomed out.
