I wouldn't use ANYTHING but a Towel soaked in HOT WATER for your Windshield...
You asking for one messed up shield if you are putting crap on it.
As far as the Paint and Chrome... again, I wouldn't put that crap on it.
Soap and Water then WAX it up. With Mothers or H-D Wax.
Keep the furniture crap on the crappy furniture.
January 5, 2007I use whatever detailer I have on hand, Mother's or Corbin at the moment. If there is only dust, I wipe it down with a California Duster first, then wipe on some detailer. If road grime is present, like when I get caught in the rain, I wash it with a car-wash product, and S100 on any oily areas. When the S100 is used up I'm switching to Simple Green. The bike is new and doesn't leak, so I rarely use the grease cutter. Every few months I hit the painted surfaces with NuFinish liquid for protection.
The windshield gets the wet-towel treatment, then some Novus #1. On my old RK I used Armor-All on the engine's black powdercoat, but will probably use a more task-specific product on this bike, one that won't attract dust and dirt. Any recommendations?
January 5, 2007Had a dealer in North Carolina use S-100 engine bright on my black powder coated engine parts(everthing since it was a night train) and it made it all look brand new.
January 5, 2007iclick, Welcome! An old wet towel does wonders on a bug-ridden windshield. Let it sit for 10 minutes, bug crap wipes right off. Novus #1 after. Takes any fine scratches right out.
Hey, you know what the last thing to go thru a bug's mind as it self-destructs on my windshield? That's right, its as*hole.
