I used auto wax a couple times a year on my 06 black ST1300 and Lemon Pledge on everything including the windscreen almost every ride. Spray a bit on. Wipe. Wait a few minutes and wipe again. Microfible cloth is best. It looked showroom new 4 years old.

Lemon Pledge really? I have to try that..
I normally use a microfiber cloth with Mothers Showtime after every ride..
Have to get the sea slime off living and riding by the beach..

Crazy, lemon pledge, sorry Meguiars or Turtle Wax. I think they are alot better than Lemon pledge IMHO!

Once a year is good, or if water wont bubble on paint I think you want a harder wax than pledge due to UV and bond with clear coat.

I dont worry about it cause I have the MATTE SILVER!

I use wash and Detail from S100 or some crap never need water for chrome and rest!!!

I dont use wax on tank or fenders I wash with DAwn dish soap in warm water, dry with chamos or soft 100% cotton shirt.

I use the Honda polish and its the bomb,does a great job on black also.As for the CHROME,I asked the chromers what they use when I picked up my rims,rotors ,hub and kickstand this week, and they gave me a bottle of No7 CHROME & METAL POLISH,they told me that they have tried all kinds of stuff,and this works the best,and I just googled it and cant believe how cheap it is,if its good enough for the guys that just put all their time in chroming and polishing my stuff,its good enough for me.

I use ICE shampoo with high pressure hose set to foaming only, ICE liquid wax, and micro fibre clothes. In the past I've used Turtle Wax with a damp cloth.

The ICE is very easy and quick to use. It was recommended to me in this forum. I use both ICE and Turtle Wax, not during the same wash though.

Drying... I let the engine idle for 5 minutes before waxing.

For metal polish... I try not to as there is chrome plastic (DO NOT USE METAL POLISH IT WILL STRIP THE CHROME OFF THE PLASTIC).. On the metal chrome parts I use creme metal polishes but very sparingly or metal polish with clean engine oil mixed in to thin it. The paint work finish is thanks to Turtle Wax.

The Turtle Wax gentle buffing requires some effort and can leave a white residue but it is worth it. It leaves a harder protective coating. I've attached a picture of my 1998 Yamaha VMax, which spent its first 5 years parked out in all weathers.

It's 12 years old now... that's part of a picture taken last month.
Crazy bike but I loved it... yep... I sold it last month... :(

Still it was fun... a license killer... and too many near misses to think about... :eek: Had her up to 150+ in France.. that was really scary and fun at the same time :D. The motorways in France have concrete hard shoulders about 3 feet high.. not something you want to run out of bend on... :confused:

Chilling out now!
