I washed my Bike

Discussion in 'General Motorcycling Discussion' at netrider.net.au started by Darwin, Jan 28, 2008.

  1. Those that have ridden a few times with me will eventually comment on how dirty my bike is. Or when am i going to wash it etc.
    I usually reply with some feeble comment like "I bought it to ride, not spend the weekend scrubbing it", or "feel free".

    I missed the Putty run today, so I spent the day on my knees washing and polishing.

    Anyway this is for those who have influenced me.

    ZX-14_Washed.

  2. Very nice and well worth the sweat.
    What products of choice for a result like that?

  3. Darwin, I am also into riding not spending weekends cleaning.

    However, I had these done locally but usually use my mate Dave at Penrith Metal Polishing.

    My 1400GTR, same wheels I believe, would look great on the black 14

  15. Yes, secondaries removed, DNA filter, PC3 USB and custom map. Goes alright now.

    Love those polished wheels, but if I got mine done I would then have to wash the bike more often.

  18. I had the 1000GTR wheels polished also and it really makes them easier to keep clean. Maybe polish couple times a year no big deal. Some other pics here

  19. Thanks for the pics mate.. They look good.. I keep my bike spotless, after every ride it gets fully detailed. The rims i use window cleaner to keep them clean. I like the look of the polished rim, i actually have polished rims on my ZX9 ..
