i use SG on my frame, radiator, swingarm, casings, and rims. never had that issue.

fwiw i never leave it on there very long though, spray, wipe, rinse. from what i understand leaving it on for very long is a bad thing.

i find that if you mix 1 parts of the blue JB weld with 10 parts battery acid, it works pretty well... oh, and aircraft remover on the metal

Its called FW1.

They don't sell it in stores. I've only seen people demo it at certain gas stations. I havnt found anything that works as good.honda pollish isn't as good in my opinion.

"ICE" by turtle wax. available at walmart. get the soap and most importantly the spray detailer and microfiber pad. rinse soap and rinse again then i blow dry mine with a leaf blower to try and avoid scratches. a near impossible task on a black bike. well for me anyway. and then spray detail the whole thing. usually stays clean for about a day or so. i love the black...but it sure is high maintenance.

i have heard of people using the blower trick before. good idea. i've also seen people using air compressors.

I'll say it again.... HONDA POLISH FTW!!

Spray and Wipe. That's it. It cleans and polishes all in one.

Almost anything else is a multi-step process. Even FW1 is not much different than any other cleaner/wax. It works great, and I'm sure they all work great, but because they contain wax (carnauba is a great wax), they require you to wipe on, let haze, then buff off.

Honda Polish makes it so much easier, and saves your time, which you can spend riding instead of polishing.

It smells great, too! The only problem with that, is that bees & wasps seem to be attracted to my bike! Or maybe that's just because its European namesake is the Honda Hornet.

Should be noted soaking your bike like this you really need to re-lube your chain afterward. I always clean the chain before washing with kerosene and a grunge brush and lube after washing with Motul chain lube.

Use to do that often. Works Great but the FW1 did the job with out all the other stuff.

I preferred the FW1 over the honda one because of the "touch less shine". it was smudge proof and water beaded right off it. I hated it when the ladies left proof(fingerprints) all on the tank. so FW1 FTW
