Which spray cleaner/polish to use of these 2?

Which one is better? I've never used the new Honda reformulated version.

The "new" Honda Spray Cleaner & Polish: http://www.directlineparts.com/produ...id=8279&str=11

or, the "original" one that no longer has the Honda name on it:


2004 1800 NEO

Pledge Multi-surface....Don't have to go to the Honda dealer to get it, and works on everything but the tires.....

I used the old Honda cleaner for years and loved it. When they switched over to the new stuff I didn't notice any difference. I still use it on everything and I seldom wash my bike.

The newer honda stuff works just as good as the older formular. The only difference I noticed was the older formula was less viscous newer stuff is just a bit thicker

The only thing they changed was the propellant to make it more environmentally friendly. It is amazing stuff.

I have been using the Honda cleaner for 15 years. No problems yet.

As far as stupid drivers are concerned, it's mercy, compassion and forgiveness I lack. Not rationality.
