Looks awesome. Did you do the detailing or have someone do it? I am looking to have protective film installed on my gsxr and am wondering if the film maybe takes away from the bike being able to shine like a new bike.
Umm I did the detailing, what part of the bike do you wanna put the film on? I have had a good deal of success using 3m rubbing compound an the 3m perfect it one and two wax system. Most important place to wax is the rims, chain lube and brake dust wipe right off. I don't have n e thing against bucket and hose washing but i have never used that method. I have been using the new sprayaway exterior detailer. Mainly use that because it lacks its own wax its just a cleaner.
Gotcha. Yours looks great.
I have been hand cleaning mine with a spray water bottle and following it with Liquid Glass wax applied by hand (I have a SPTA micro polisher coming in the mail that should also help) . Even with a great coat of wax my tank keeps getting dulled and marred just by my riding jacket rubbing against it....nothing that won’t polish out but would rather not keep having to re-polish after every ride. I have even had a light weight plastic strip sewn over my jacket front zipper and still have the issue. I am thinking the film will keep my tank from getting marred up....being a black tank with metal flake doesn’t make it any easier. (I like the bike tank exposed and don’t care for those “tank saver” stickers).
Let me know if you have any better ideas or have had the same issue.
