yep...nothing but honda polish.

the only time i ever took a hose to it was after i crashed at willow, and the dirt was in everything. of course, i tried using a detergent i hadn't used before and TOTALLY screwed up the frame and swingarm (black streaks in the powdercoating and actually took anodizing off the brembo rotors!).

lesson learned the hard way. nothing but honda polish ever again.

when I tried doing the whole no water thing my bike got tons of surface scratches in it! but my bike is black. I love the honda polish but to me there is still nothing like a good sponge and some sudsy water and than waxing. I like to about twice a year take all the plastics off my bike and detail it up. Looks like new when im done

my bike is black, and I use nothing but plexus on it....

i do however also completely detail the plastics every winter using a claybar and carnuba wax follow-up.

it's just ongoing maintenance. i wipe the bike down after every ride and garage it. people that commute on their bikes obviously can't clean their bikes after every ride. the brake dust, grease and road grime will build up over time and it will take water and a detergent to get the bike clean again.

honda polish is good stuff for the bodywork, but it's not an engine degreaser.

Clay bars rock! I just don't think enough people realize how well they work.

Corey, I have to agree with Hawk. It is really not for cleaning engine degreaser but it works wonders when you get a good starter coat. I use my bike as a commuter during the summer and maybe clean my bike everyother week and every once in awhile I get that junebug that impailed itself into my bike that takes a little elbow grease.
