  • Tip 4
  • To Wax or not to Wax ?


 

Waxing
 Wax or Not ? Some prefer to polish and leave it at that, some use all in one 'Wash and Go' shampoo waxes and others prefer natural waxes.

My tip to you is that waxing a bike is more for its protection than its looks and so I would go for a natural wax, a Carnauba based liquid wax would be the best bet. Simply pour a little wax onto a rag and rub in using a circular motion. Be very wary of grit on your rag as even the smallest piece of grit can cause permanent damage to the paintwork- trust me I know !

stay clear of any household waxes like Pledge as if you use these then you run the risk of damaging paintwork. That is not the only negative aspect, another is that the finish that it provides may only last for one or two rides.
