Can any body tell me what to do and not to do when cleaning wheels on a 1300 C , thear are some products that in the caution label say DO NOT USE ON ANODIZED, MAGNESIUM, UN-COATED OR POWDER-COATED WHEELS, also NOT SAFE FOR MOTORCYCLE WHEELS, is my first time cleaning and i don't want to damage the wheels

For just cleaning the stock rims, I spray the tires and wheels with degreaser and then use a faily stiff nylon brush on the tires and wheels, then spray them off with the hose. Does a great job! To get a good shine without polishing, try Mothers Billet polish, takes some pretty good elbow grease, but will do a good job, till your ready to polish them! I have used the degreaser on my car factory wheels (coated aluminum) for years and never had a problem. JMO.

I use 000 steel wool, then a product called Black Diamond. The 000 steel wool takes off any hard deposits without harming the stock rims, and the Black Diamond really shines them up.
