I use mothers 3 step but that mothers wax is soft so i throw a coat of Meguiars NXT wax on top of that bcause it's hard.. After that just Honda Polish (or whatever your favorite replacement is over that).
Also if your gonna wax it take your time i hate seeing bikes that have built up white wax in bolts and cracks...looks SO bad.
One CLEAN rag to clean with and turn it often. Then use one to wipe the Honda polish off with and then another to polish. I use receiving blankets from the baby section. Wipe in back and forth motions instead of the "circular" motions. That limits the amount of "swirlies" in your paint. Well that and a clean rag. Did I say to use a clean rag?
I just washed mine today. Rims were never cleaned for over a year..so I hit them along with the chain.
Let it dry and then rolled it into the garage for Meguiar's wax.
Too exhausted from wiping off all the wax, but it is DAMN SMOOTH with the towel.
Thew the cover over it and will honda polish tomorrow.
AAHHHHHH, IT'S A LOT OF FREAKING WORK!
Screw it, I'm gonna go honda polish it now!:love10: SHINE!!!
I buy brand new polishing towels/rags by microfiber everytime I clean my bike, even though I could just go wash them at the laundry or sumthing.
And then you will have lines instead. I know you don't think that the circular motion alone is what causes the swirl marks. You have to use something really delicate like a polish then hand glaze to get rid of all of the swirl marks. Another common mistake people make is applying too much pressure to the surface.
hey guys i just went up to the local honda dealer , and pick up some honda polish and it does say on the cans not 4 sale in CA, DE, MD, NJ, NY, PA AND DC.. AND IN THE STATES OF CT, MA, ME NH, RI, VA AND VT.. IT SAYS SOME THING IN REGARDS TO VOLATILE ORGANIC COMPOUND RESTRICTIONS????
I just washed mine for the first time since it was knocked over at the movies 3 weeks ago. I use Maguiers on the painted surfaces accept the wheels. On my swing arm and pipe I use Mothers metal polish. I hate chrome but I do like the shine in the Jardine and my swingarm after it is done. And yes I use a diaper to wash,dry,wax application and removal. For the metal polish I use my old boot polishing rags that I have accumilated over the past 20 years.
After that I use Mothers quick wax to knock off any swirls.
a friend of mine was telling me about a electronic visor that can switch from smoked to clear.
i have seen similar idea on airplane windows, they have a lcd i think in between them.
any one know if they are for sale?
also he said he saw one that has daemon eyes on it that are leds, ever see?
I have tried to change from khp to mph the normal way ..... 'when on trip A press the reset button' - it does not work for me.
My speedo seems to be stuck on kph.
Anyone else have this problem? If so did you manage to changeto mph?
Anyone know why it would be stuck on kph?
So, below are a couple of pics from my old 1992 CBR600 (f2) - bought as the flamed pirelli, purchased some fairings from China for £350 and fitted myself - and I loved this bike.
Smashed it to bits at 4am one morning on my commute, taking a corner far too late - totally my fault.
No idea how this happened but the coolant overflow tank somehow got a hole in the top. It looks burned but it's not by the head or exhaust. No coolant was left in it. I noticed it when I was changing the oil.
