Ask your dealership if they sell 'honda spray'. That's what they use on the showroom bikes where I am. I don't know exactly what it's called, but they should understand. That stuff works great.

Honda spray wax is awesome:thumbup:

I would try to cover the parts that bother you with clear 3m plastic from many places such as the place mine came from.
I put a clear 3m tank kit on my 08' GSXR 750.
It looks great,..........ya' cant even notice.
It goes on like window tint (wet, n' stick).....get out the bubbles.


There are two "kinds"
-the one w/ adhesive backing (wet and stick):D
-the one with no adhesive (still wet and stick):D

Hope I could help.

+1 for clear film protectors. In a heavy duty situation they really do protect what they cover, especially headlights...gives me an idea.

If you're mostly street riding, regular washes like said you do, and a good finish treatment (spray) will suffice. The Honda stuff is called Pro Honda "Spray Cleaner & Finish". Just looked at the can for ya. :thumbup:

Just keep 'er clean and don't wipe it off or clean it with a dry rag. Always use water or solvent solution to keep from scratching that pretty finish!

Post whore action, but a good appearance question-

Is there any way to remove boot marks from the rear fender?

After noticing, I have changed how I mount the bike with the usual high leg kick, then bend at the knee to clear the rear end. I'm just a little guy, but it does feels more comfortable to mount that way.

Anyway, if anyone has a trick I would love to know it! I thought about trying to just "rub it out" (LOL) but I don't want to swirl the whole rear fender in the process.

Cheers and Happy Rides to All!
