    You will get 1000 different ideas and all will work very well. We offer Pure Victory Polishes that were designed in conjunction with Victory and work really well. The stuff is pretty affordable as well. Check it out: http://buywitchdoctors.com/c/546/victory-motorcycle-parts-cleaning-detailing-supplies-buywitchdoctors/

    I dont wash it often with water but usually use the Ice line of Turtle Wax. Then finish it off with the Black and Silver from Victory Polishes

    Good ol' Turtle Wax, liquid form. I keep a shiny coat on all painted surfaces so the bike is easy to wipe down after each ride over 50 miles. I use regular chrome polish on the chrome on both bikes I own. As far as windshields go, Plexus has performed well for me. Plexus keeps a waxy feel to the w/s's on both my bikes and makes bug removal way easier.

    I use Mr Clean car wash when it needs major cleaning, for touch ups like on ride events there is nothing better on the market than Honda Bright spray polish, this stuff id good for windshields, rubber, paint, lights , everything . Spray it on wipe it off and buff, leaves no residue. I keep a can in my saddlebag. ( oh its good on goggles to keeps them from fogging). No I don't work for Honda. Have tried the similar products from Harley and Victory, they just don't compare . Try it you will like it. Tom D.

    Oh, one last thing. Be sure when you wash it to blow out where your spark plugs go. It oxidizes quickly.

    Good point. I use my leaf blower to dry off the entire bike when I get done hand washing it. Helps eliminate water spots in those hard to reach places.

    I've been using Griot's Garage Waterless Spray-on Car Wash. Just spray it on and wipe it off with a microfiber towel. It takes me maybe 7 minutes to clean the whole bike. http://www.griotsgarage.com/product/spray-on+car+wash%2C+35+ounces.do?sortby=ourPicks
