What do all you guys use to clean your X? Honda Polish? What else? Anything special on the wheels?
How about windshield? Just soap? Any input is greatly appreciated. Havent ever had to clean all this chrome before.
Thanks.

I have come to love the S100 spray on cleaner for the bike!! Spray on, rinse off, wipe off with a towel and it looks like new!!!

I use Plexus on the windshield. I pop off the shield when using the S100...don't know if it would hurt it, but it's easy enough to not take the chance.

Weak Simple Green solution to clean the entire bike, (less than 50/50 with water), then a coat of Turtle Wax Ice for the time being. When it runs out I'll probably get some more Fat Bob's wax.

Simple Green on the windshield too, even works on bugs. Then a coat of Ice; found that out by accident but it works well.

Ahhh... Simple Green... probably the best kept secret of Dollar General... My parents out from California on vacation took a case back with them.... :lol:

She's right.. Spray it down.... let sit for about 3 minutes... (Don't do this with the bike hot, or in direct sunlight--if it dries hard, you're screwed.) Rinse it off...

I use an air compressor to blow off the water spots and to get water out of fins and knooks and crannies... then polish it up with micro fiber.. 15 mins and done.

That's all I used so far on the bike itself. 10 months and 4000 miles.

On ocassion, I have used Fantastik on the wheels to remove dirt and Mother's Polish to shine.

Only thing I use is Poorboys Spray and Wipe with microfiber towels. Works like a dream and is real quick and easy.

I bought a 5 gallon pail and use it on the cars and stuff in the house too. Amazing stuff. :pepper1:

The guy that custom painted my ex's bike recommended Murphys Oil Soap for washing. He said it cleans well and leaves a fine oil film to prevent any rusting. Made sense and that's all I will use to wash my bike with now. Works great and one heck of a shine.
