    I use a Kitten car polish #1 on paint, and Autosol on metal which works wonders!

      Hi paul,

      Is that the one in the white, red and blcak can that also is a cleaner? If it is the same product (can't remember the name) then I used it for a while now. The product itself is pretty good, but I don't spray it directly onto the bike because it gets into places you can't easily wipe it off.

      I spray it onto a cloth and then rub it on ten buff it off. Works well and gives a good shine. Friend uses Mr Sheen and swears by it - and his bike looks the goods.
      Life seems more precious when there's less of it to waste.

                  Not surprised they've gone broke,saddlebags reduced from $895.00 to $695! Same bags 450.00 allover.Said I had just had a rear tyre fitted at west coast for $228.00($22.00 cheaper than tyres for bikes,same tyre)they said Yamaha would have charged an hours labour for fitting.No reduction on helmets,which was my interest.Was that your blue C50? great colour.
                  Hope to see you on a ride soon,let me know when you're home and we'll get something up,I ride every sunday to somewhere

                      I use Kitten number 1,its hard to beat and use the coloured polish on the scratches. I get a good result using the Kitten on the chrome as well.
                      I use the Kitten shampoo for washing the bike

                        Is that the one with no water? I think its a jewellers polish. If its what I think it is,its only good if the surface has already been polished.
                        I suspect it maybe detrimental to the paint in the long term.
                        I tried it once,didnt work nearly as good as in the demo.

                          I use Mr Sheen to clean everything and I go over the plastic and paint again with Armorall.

                            Please don't ever put Armorall on your paint work. The base compound in it (I think silicone, or was it oil based I can't remember) penetrates the whole way down into the base metal and cannot be removed. I know of panel beater doing resto's who's had to replace whole panels on cars with new metals as the old had previously had Armorall on it, and the metal could not be treated to take fresh paint to the point he was willing to warranty his work.

                              Autosol for chrome/stainless/aluminium Maquires Techwax for the paint.

                              [edit: just saw the last post. Armourall is like wiping shit on your stuff]
