My routine before it was painted was giving the bike a full wax once a month and pledging it once a week

Pledge strips wax off it and leaves its own protectant so if your gonna Pledge save the wax.

Bike looks great and would look even better with that new camera Vonderbach thinks you should buy :laugh:

I use pledge on everything but the plastics and tank.
I clean the wheels and lower half of bike with pledge.
The top half I wax along with the fairings.
And I still soak her down with (close your ears Sleepless) water once a week and wash it before I do either of the above.

I think i am going to powdercoat the outer part of the rim silver and keep the inner black :beerchug:
Nah. Just strip the rim part and polish them.. Piece of cake, just spray with aircraft striper, and wipe it off. Won,t strip nothing but the rim, won,t strip nothin else..

looks great, black is beautiful. Check out my photo album to see what silver wheels vs. black will look like, theres pics of both. after switching from black to silver, I think the black does look better IMO. I plan on changing back to black later this spring before Eureka Springs Either way, thats a sharp ride

Autozone has it, but keepin up the polished look takes a bit of effort, not bad, but add another 30min or so per cleaning to keep em shinning nice. Pick up some aluminium polish too
My advice on polishing stuff is to do the grab bar 1st and see if the upkeep is worth the hassle. It is something that can easily repainted if need be.
