Very true....UNLESS... you're one of those of us who are not blessed with a nice, comfy garage to keep your scoot in. Also, if you live in an area where "30-percent chance of afternoon thunderstorms" means that there's a 100-percent chance that you'll have to ride in the rain - then you might have to add some more rounds to your bandolier.Micro fibre cloth and pledge, thats all
For the components that aren't shiny, I would use crocus cloth or a copper toothed wire brush and CLP (Cleaner, Lubricant, Preservative). CLP is used by the U.S. Army for cleaning and maintaining weapons. It contains teflon which when dry, forms a thin protective coating. I used this method to maintain AH1F, AH-64 and AH-64D attack helicopter weapon systems for over two decades. (Not to mention my M-9, M16, M4, M60 and the big M2) The rust will not come off easy but a good portion of it will. Do not try this with anything you want to shine. For that, follow the previous suggestions. You can get CLP from anywhere that sells firearms.
make sure you use the Lemon type, that way if you cant shower the bike will still smell nice LOLYou can use it on every surface, i learned about it from a custom car guy, he used it on his show cars.
Do you have a car? What do you use to wash your car? Use that on your bike.So I stand before my 900c and upon closer examination, I am confronted by a variety of surfaces. The midnight blue paint job, chrome, plastic, vinyl. So what products do I need to keep in my arsenal?
