Hi guys,

I was wanting to polish my bike, to give the paintwork a bit of a 'lift', and I have a few little scratches here and there (stone-chips, and key scratches) but was wondering which polish to use.

I am aware that you should use special motorcycle polish/ wax, but I havn't got a clue which one to get!

It needs to be suitable for plastics, decals, and black plastic.

I have seen this *clicky* but I'm not too sure how good it would be, or how long it would last.

And this *clicky* but wasn't sure if it was worth that much.

I have also heard of people using Lemon scented Pledge furniture polish!!!!!
Ay Ideas? What do you guys use?

Cheers, Rob

I use mr sheen, gets the flies off a treat. Same stuff as you see used up and down the paddocks of BSB & WSBK.

I use Autoglym super resin polish, and turtle ice wax. Also use a meguiars wax once in a while, since the end result lasts longer than the turtle, but the meguairs smells like banana:O and it's much harder to apply. You can apply the turtle ice wax in the sun to :D

Mr Barry Sheen, pick up a load of it of it when it's offer at a £1 a tin. Nothing better for getting flies off. Does a good job on wheels as well.
You mean the furniture polish (like Lemon Pledge)?

Makes a change from the warm rubber tyre smell and tinking exhaust :)
But I love that smell?

Do you think they make polish that smells like that?
Or maybe even aftershave?

If they don't, we should make it and call it something like: 'Bike polish for MEN!!:beerbang: '
