Depending on the quality of the job, tools used, materials used. I'd say no less then 200 to clean, buff scratches out, and seal with a nice wax. all using a professional car detail buffer.

I woulda said $50. That's how much I charge to completely clean a car interior, including brushing all stains out of carpets, and cleaning every single square centimeter. Depending on the car this could take from and hour and a half to two hours.

As for bikes with fairings, I dunno how hard they are to take off, but really can't take much more than 20 minutes off and on.

I would expect somebody to complete this job in 3 hours, no more. I would pay $20 per hour. That's $60.

Try taking gsxr, r6 fairings off that will take more than 20 min. Then if u rush it and brake one there goes ur $60 plus another $140 more to replace and paint it and get whatever decals it had.

This just needs to be an hourly rate.

For a bike like an Aprilia Mille the fairings come off in 5 minutes, all one piece.

For some year models of the R6 this could take upwards of 30 minutes.

Some bikes have a ton of hard to reach places that get very filthy, especially around front sprocket. Others not so much.

I would just look at an hourly charge and have it done right, than a flat charge and hope they dont rush and something up.

Some jobs are like wiping after you take a t... I wouldn't let anybody but me do it for myself. But there ain't no way I'm gonna do it for somebody else.

Okay... for a million dollars... may be.
