I am not much for washing and cleaning my motorcycles. Those that know me will attest to that.  ;D  But to be fair, living in the Phoenix, AZ area we have very little rain and therefore no muddy road conditions so bikes stay fairly clean. Dust is always an issue so I do have a California Duster that gets regular use.

As far as a motorcycle wash product I like S100. It is simple and effortless. Spray it on and it penetrates all the cracks and crevices and then you spray/rinse it off and wipe the bike dry.

Cast a vote in the above poll and represent your favorite cleaning product.  If yours is not listed then vote "other" and post in the thread below what your "other" brand is.

If you would like to give more of your thoughts on motorcycle cleaning post away!!

I have used S100 and felt it does a good job. A bit pricey but worth the work it saves you.

I like S100 as well. I have used Maguires products for years on my cars and trucks, so I use it on the scooter as well.  8)

More of a ride it, not fuss about it.  When I do wash her, I use a good car wash soap, decent wax (turtle Wax or Mothers depends on whatever one I find) , Pledge for Plastics, Plexus for Windshield and other lenses, saddle soap for leather.  May try the S-100 since you all have good things to say about it.

My bike is usually dirty most of the year with the rain and mist, I just use my car wash soap  which is Blue Coral then I usually use  Maguire's show car polish then a good wax.

I don't use MC products to wash her; Just a power washer at the the local quarter car wash.
When I get back however, I use my Meguiars products that I use on my WS6 trans am and my custom bar hopper.
Nuthin better.

I've always looked at washing my bikes as part of maintenance ... as I wash, I'm closely inspecting ... spotting problems before they become problems. Now, as for products ... I don't bother with motorcycle labeled products ... a lot of money wasted on the higher price over regular auto cleaners. Being in Canada, I go to Canadian Tire and buy a big jug of whatever car wash ... for waxing I use a polymer product like Nu-Finish (once a year car polish) ... My last bike was 5 years old, had over 100,000 miles and looked show room new ... I'd rather spend my bucks on gas than high end priced MC cleaning products that do nothing more than the junk cleaning stuff I use. I also carry a spray bottle of hydrogen peroxide for cleaning the windshield of bugs ... just spray, let the bugs foam up for a second or two and wipe clean. Fast and efficient and never a risk of scratching the shield at the pumps.  8)

S100 products work great. I used the one for cleaning and spray engine brightener. It makes quick work of cleaning your bike and leaves the black on the engine looking new. A bit pricy but in my opinion worth the price.
Life is short, enjoy it but don't self destruct.

I use Hondabrite.  I've always used it before I bought a Harley and see no reason to change.  It works great on plastics, the windshield, chrome and engine.  Never have had a problem with it.  Spray it on cold and rinse it off.  Easy.
