I see some can't get the honda spray any more or whatever try misting a rag with lemon pledge then wiping with a clean rag ,to much and it will streek, to littel and it won't clean or shine, good luck
Lemon Pledge with a microfiber works well. I used to use this method all the time until the Eagle 1 Nanowax Spray came out. Basically the same results, but the Nanowax lasts a little bit longer on the bike.jcopley said:Try the pledge on a micr-fiber cloth.Â Â :bigthumbsup:
Be careful with micro fiber cloths. They are designed to trap dirt and that is why they work so well. They also can scratch the paint since they do such a good job of holding onto dirt. I use pollishing clothes so I don't have to worry about trapped dirt. I am not as concerned as most if it does scratch since I can always reclear it. I use the micro fiber for the frame and wheels but never on chrome or paint.jcopley said:Try the pledge on a micr-fiber cloth.Â Â :bigthumbsup:
Save yourself some bucks......try terrycloth towels and old tee shirts....when their dirty, just toss them in the washer and dry them in a drier with some fabric softener. I've found nothing better for maintaining a beautiful shine on all my vehicles.jerbear said:VTXOAK,
With your painting talent, you are the man in my book as far as cleaning advice.Â The only problem with that is now I've got 30 or so microfibre cloth, and you're forcing me to go get polishing cloths now. Oh well, I've got a goodly supply of frame wipes.
Yes, this is true... which is why I have about two dozen of them and throw them in the laundry after a couple of uses...vtxoak said:Be careful with micro fiber cloths.

I've used the pig spit and it works well but the S100 engine bright works better. It comes with a direction tube that slips into the spray button. That way you won't end up with overspray on your chrome. That really sucks! You clean and wax your sled then spray the motor and you've got to repolish the chrome.SLOPOKE said:HA been there done that!! lesson learned, the hard way. to really bring out the black in the motor find Pig Spit, or Hog snot at your local Harley Dealer or Walmart, really turns the motor into a thing of beauty.
