I just read the post about how you dry your wing. That makes me wonder how may people actually wax theirs. If they do I would like to know just what kind or brand of wax they use.

I have alway waxed my other bikes.

I have only had mine since last June. I have never waxed it yet. I have never washed it with soap and water either. I just keep it wiped down with Honda cleaner using diapers for a cloth. I do not mean Pampers :) :)

I have a special rag, called, "The Cloth" that I keep in the trunk. It is kept in a baggie and damp. I rinse it out using hot water and keep ringing it until clean.

Wax mine with MacGuires. Started with a base coat of Gold, then #7, then #26. Use detail spray after a hard ride...

I wax in the spring and in the fall. Usually use McGuires. Make a "day out of it" and wax the Wing, the cars, the truck & the satellite dish.

I wax every time I wash. That stuff they put in Zip Wax Car Wash is great. The trick is to not rinse completly and blow dry well. This may not be as good as real wax but I do too much damage and make a mess the other way.

Wax

Bought a new was the other day called Glass Wax, very expensive but I expect it to be the best.

I use "NuFinish" myself. I believe that it lasts longer than wax. But I don't think it gives as good a shine.

Do the BOM products work? I've reviewed their website and talked to the BOB guy at the Hoot last year but I'm still unsure. Any feedback would be appreciated.

The only thing I've used to date are those Turtle Wax "Handy Wipe Type" wax cloths with excellent results. Their quick, easy, no wax residue and leave a great shine.


Thanks,

OUTDRN :lol:

Maguires, Zaino and the Bom are really great. I do mine around 3 or 4 times a year. Joy

I don't wax, I use glaze.



I must be doing something right, I'm surrounded by 60 car show trophies (including two "best of show" trophies) here in my den.

This will sound crazy, but I got sold on the Honda Cleaner Wax that comes in the black spray can with my 750 ACE. I think it's great! You can use it on the seats, chrome, plastic, lenses etc... JMHO

You may not believe this, but I use Lemon Pledge (non-aerosol spray bottle) to clean and protect my Wing. Used it on my 81 and 82 Wings (had the 82 for 10 years) with great results.

When it's really grubby, I'll break out a sponge and bucket, but otherwise, it's Lemon Pledge all the way. Was started on this by a friend who's ridden Wings for years! Works great for me!

Hey R. Fenwick, is there a special process in using the Mequires #7. Or is it like using any other liquid wax products :?:

Ronnie, I use the Honda Spray cleaner on everything else but the paint, that stuff is amazing!!! I found Turtle Wax handy wipes to a better job on the paint.

I use Buffalo Milk about every two months, it's similar to the The Bom but I like it better. Use Bom's Away on the wheels twice a year.

Always fighting the polish and wax. Black might be the fastest but sure is a pain to maintain. Scratches up the ying yang. :banghead: :cus:
