    2009 R1200RT Tupperwear (Fairing) Polish

    Good afternoon,

    Been looking for some reference to what the mass of HexHead/CamHeads use for polishing the fairings on the R1200RT. I have always used Dry Wash and Guard, but cannot find as they seem to have disappeared from the market place.

    Some favorites include
    1) Plexus
    2) Honda polish
    3) Lemon Pledge
    etc
    etc
    Some even use car detailers of which there are many that differ only a little from each other.

    Have used Lemmon Pledge on cars
    , airplanes and motorcycles for years.

    Works great on airplane windshields
    and motorcycle windsheilds also.

    Plexas and Mcguires detailer works well
    also. Plexas was $14.95 one year ago
    and now $21.95. I refuse to use it any
    longer.

    Start with a couple of good coats of wax for a base. After that a wet (water), soft cloth will take off any grime after a ride without scratching the paint. Dry with a soft terrycloth towel. To get the bugs and crap off a windshield without scratching it, just soak down a big towel and throw it on the windshield for 10 minutes and let it sit. For those really nasty bugs, grease, etc...Honda polish. When nothing else works on the chrome, wheels, etc, then drag out the Mother's metal polish.
