I used to use Pledge, but my local bike shop told me to try Honda Pro cleaner/detailer. Works really well. I use Lockhart Phillips cleaner on the screen. Cleans bugs off and buffs out minor scratches.

Mothers or Mequires

I always have just used either Mothers or Meguires spray "Quick detail." Spray, wipe on, let it haze and wipe off. Works great and is seriously cheap. 5 or 6 bucks a bottle.

Also, I recently tried one of Mothers clay block cleaning systems on my bike. It is a soft clay block, you spray on the detail spray, run the block over the area and it smooths out the paint imperfections. I had always written this deal off as another "Snake - Oil" voodoo product. But it is seriously cool. Makes your painted surface smooth as glass, which in turn reflects light better, and makes you very shiny.

No I do not work for either company, but in my life I have bad mouthed so many products, when something works, it makes me want to give a little back.

the clay bar smooths out the finish by taking the top layer off.

this will thin the paint.

don't the the clay bay all the time, only when things get embedded and can't be washed out.

Clay is made of miniscule abrasive particles, it' slike a polish, but much rougher in comparison.

I use the Kawasaki stuff-based on label appearance and how it works, I'd say the same third party is making the same stuff to be sold under both the Honda and Kawasaki brand. Why use the Kawasaki cleaner instead of the Honda? It's cheaper! (kinda like their bikes-as good if not better, but less money)!

I like to keep an arsenal of cleaning stuff, cuz you never know what might work best in a particular situation. For polishes, they include:
Lemon Pledge
Kawasaki Spray Polish
Meguiar's or Eagle 1 Instant Detailer

All I ask is a tall ship and a star to steer her by.
