frame cleaning

I just bought a 06 RC51 to replace a ZX10, loving the V Twin experience. The bike needs alot of detailing to bring it to the proper level, all the plastics have been cleaned up, Maguires Scratch X2.0 does an excellent job, the black fairings look incredible. What are people using to cleanup the black anodized frame on the RC51s. all advice is appreciated

I have no idea. I tried s100 and it didn't help much.

Good old fashioned Armor All is what I have used.

Overall, I feel that it works well.
It takes away the white oxidized haze. It's not a permanent fix but lasts a long time. I do it to mine about once a year.

But do it a day or so before you wash the bike to get the excess off, otherwise dust and dirt will stick to it.

Search the topic and Armor all, and you'll find my other post with more information on this.

No offence taken man. I've experienced the same.
But on paint, and after its washed, with normal car wash soap, it goes away

If nothing else try it on a small hidden area and post up what you think.

Personally I would like to know your opinion.

Yea, I think I will, I might have some days off work here shortly, thinking about detailing the beast.
