New Ninja

Hey wassup everyone! Just wanna say that this website is better than my old home at Gixxer.com! The veteran members of this site are truly wise and dedicated to the almighty ZX-10R! Hail Kawi! Hail Kawi!
P.S. Gixxers never came in a titanium matte finish so I ask the Titanium Silver Ninja clan of this site "what kinda cleaning products besides the old fashioned soap and water, can I use to clean and polish my silver bullet without harming the matte finish???

Thanks for the quick reply! Yeah they stopped selling the Honda cleaner out here in Nor-Cal last month.But I found out that Kawasaki has their own cleaner for our bikes but its a few dollars more expensive than the Honda cleaner. I'll go buy some and test it out today since I skipped work to ryde in da hills this morning (lol) and let you know how it works!

I was told by the wise here that Plexus is the best and now that I have tried it I agree. This stuff works awesome. Sportech recommends its use on their windscreens and it works great on my Shoei mirrored shield.

No more honda polish??? hope that is a Cali thing. Love that stuff, always heard good things about plexus though.

Motorcycle stuff offers a spray cleaner, similar to honda polish, may not be quite as good from what I can tell.

Also mqguiars qick detail or what ever they call it is not bad for a quick clean.

For a real wash, I swear by S100, just don't use it on a hot bike or in hot sun. Read the bottle.

For travelling, armour all car wash wipes are pretty good.

Sarah Palin and friends can call it a snow machine all they want but Yamaha, Polaris and Bombardier plus the related magazines all seem to call them Snowmobiles.

Snow machines create snow on ski slopes. Just sayin'

I ended up buying some Kawi cleaner from my buddy at the dealership. This stuff works wonderz just like the Honda polish, even better in my opinion. Also, my buddy told me that all dealerships in Cali stopped selling the Honda spray polish April 1 '06 because of our state's strict environmental laws. Just like how Cali gets slower cars and bikes than the other states.......You Lucky out-of-state Bastids! LOL..Anyways Thanks everyone for your advice and anyone else feel free to reply to my post still with your 2 cents especially, if you know of any bad products not to use! P.S. the dealer told me that Motul Spray and Wash is also a kick ass product but he was sold out. Later NinJaZ!
