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.

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..

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.

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. :D 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.

damn whats up with the nu finish haters??? I always use mothers, zymole, or nu finish and have had "as shiney as a fresh rain" results with all of them. Hell my first car (85 escort) looked like it had set in the sun for 10 years and never been washed. Used the nu finish and it removed all the oxidized paint and damn near looked like a new paint job.

I think there are lots of good products out there, just depends on how you use it.

The Honda cleaner >> works wonders and It has UV protection!

I use Nu Finish on my 4 wheel vehicles >>> The stuff kicks butt >> very shiny in finish and lasts about 1 year! Best wax I have ever used. I have not tried it yet on the bikes! The Honda stuff is working just fine and won't hurt the plastic or the windscreen!
