Which is a Standard format. When you use your iphone in the vertical plane its a non standard format. AKA apple format. Due to Screen size and resolution.

Been thinking of clay bar'ing mine and waxing too. Maybe try to get rid of some imperfections previous owner did to the paint. Have never done clay bar though, ya'll lemme know if you've used anything with good results. Last time I waxed a bike I rode hard the next day and wrecked so haven't even waxed em in years lol. We'll see how it turns out this time!
Oh and for wax what do you like? Synthetic or Carnuba? I usually go Carnuba.

If you're paint is smooth you don't need a clay bar. Just waxing it will do the job. Clay baring is only for gritty type surface on the paint.

Ahhh, well crap. Maybe that's why ive been advised to use clay bar when wet sanding or afterwards anyway. Almost looks like grease smudges but they don't come out. Doesn't look like the clear is coming off but ill have to look closer. Maybe just a good wax will help.
Ya'll be careful after a fresh wax. Murphy will be out lookin for ya!

All types of containments bond to the surface of cars and motorcycles especially if left outside. I would clay then wax the bike then throughout the summer keep it up with quick waxes. I usually clay once a year and I'm good.

I usually just hit it with a fresh coat of Krylon every year. Works beautifully.
