Nu Finish...

Is garbage. I'd rather rub sh!t on my bike. A friend of mine used that bottle of dung and it didn't shine any more than a cantelope and there was a noticable improvment after switching to Turtle wax extreme cleaner.

Motorcycles aren't dangerous. The ignorant non-driving ****ers driving cars, running us off the road, and killing us are.

Stay well away! Back in the late 80s I tried it once on a Plymouth Reliant and fu**** up the paint bad. Swirls all over the place, but it was a Reliant, so who really cared

I've had excellent luck with just about any Meguiar's product. Their "Gold Class" wax that sells for about $9 everywhere is very good.

I noticed a few weeks ago some scratches that looked like dirt on the side panel; as you're sitting on the bike the panel pulls a 90 degree and faces you....

So I had no idea how these came in contact with anything other than my jeans....

After reading how to clean my windscreen (because Windex tends to "fog" it up due to amonia; which I later learned produces itsy bitsy tiny scratches in the plastic...hence "fog"), soemone recommended "Honda Polish"

Man, does that sh*t work! Best $5.95 I ever spent. I would try that as your first option....b/c it's the cheapest..

Nu finish is good stuff, quit your bitchin.

Repeal helmet laws, they only protect people we most likely don't need in the gene pool any way!

Try the Kawasaki spray polish. Based on the label, I'd be willing to bet it's made by the same folks who make the Honda stuff. Tried 'em both, appear to be the same, but the Kawasaki stuff is cheaper.

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

I used some stuff called Zaino on my bike the other day and it worked pretty good. It's expensive and hard to get though. My father-in-law shows his car and swears by the stuff.

honda stuffU

I love the honda stuff, it works GREAT on everything bikes, cars, etc. I would brush my teeth with it if it wasn't toxic.
