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.
Hey guys, I'm going to buy a used motorcycle. I'm thinking something around 04-07 to make it more affordable but I'm torn between the R6 and the CBR, can anyone persuade me either way? Thanks for the input
I'm in the market for a bike and am leaning towards Honda, but I have a few questions before pulling the trigger. Those of you out there with a 600rr I would like to ask:
What are your least favorite things about this bike?
Would you/do you ride long distances comfortably?
Is there anything...
Ok here’s the deal. 05 cbr rr, the other day I drove to my buddies house and we were messing around. Finally he pulled back to the house on my bike and when I went to restart it it wouldn’t start, lights on dash but just clicks like super dead battery. Roll started it and got home 15 miles away...
I love my bike, but I can't wait to get rid of it. I've had a YBR125 for a couple of years now, and it looks great and it's fantastic for city riding. But naturally, I am absolutely sick of the absolutely glacial acceleration after 40mph by now, and I'm slowly saving up to get me some more cc's...
