My favorite subject. As Joe pointed out ( thanks Joe) you can read about this subject on my site in the vendors forum. Things not to use, 409, Simple Green, dish soaps, or any other products that would be close to any of these. Oh, and I forgot no pressure washer.
If you must use water to wash your bike then I would suggest any quality car wash that makes lots of suds.
I rarely wash my bike with a hose, instead I use a product that we sell called Protect All Quick and easy Wash. Mix some up, spray on, wipe off with a clean rag. That simple, use on the whole bike .
For polish I use ( and sell) Protect All Polish...spray on wipe off. Use on every part of the bike except the tires.
For those interested we'll be at the BMW MOA in Vermont.
