Pledge - What do you use it on and what to avoid.

Hey all

I am interested in trying out the pledge and was wondering what parts are safe for it and what is not. I hear about it being used on the chrome, I am assuming both metal and plastic is fine. I am also assuming keep it off of painted surfaces as well.

Any do's and don't with it? Besides obvious ones like don't pledge your brakes haha.

All over... less brakes. MicroFiber to wipe it, or a clean cloth Baby Diaper (no pampers) or whatever you use for waxing.

Wax on.... use right hand in clockwise circular motion.

Wax off... use left hand in counter clockwise circular motion.

Wax on..... wax off......

So painted surfaces as well? Tank and fenders are fine to pledge?

Avoid the wife when she finds out you used all her pledge on your bike.

Pledge

This is not rocket science. Pledge is safe for all surfaces except tires and brake pads. It is not a lubricant so I wouldn't use it on chain and sprkts. Been using it for 10-15 years.

V/H Bigshots, Pwr. Cmdr, Honda w.s., Clearview replacement Lexan (2 inches wider), HID 50 watt kit, Honda light bar, U. S. Saddlebags, Ultimate Big Boy seat, rider backrest, Ultimate passenger seat, Cobra Fat Engine guard with Kuryakin Highway pegs, Cobra chrome license plate mount, Barons Big Air Kit, Kisan Signal Minder, LED rear brake and signal lights, desmog.

Multisurface

Use Multi Surface pledge unscented. It keeps the bee"s away I found mine at Home Depot. You can use it on any part of the bike except brakes and tires chain if you have one. I use it all over the chrome except wind shield I still use Plexus on that. Use MaGuire's next Gen paste wax on painted parts of the bike with MaGuire's Ultimate detail spray to keep the painted parts looking great
