Well I hope your not married or have a serious relationship going on every third weekend... I use mild soap ,just a little bit, and the motor has to be ice cold. wash it and dry it really good. Then use this polish called lightning shine metal polish by wicked, It's what the truckers use for the semi's to keep the chrome and alum shiny. You can order it from bedoy enter @909-949-5750 cost is
@20.00 for a big bottle.now back to you and your WHOLE third weekend. Start scrubing and by sunday night you'll be ready for a couple of rides.......By the way how do you like your ultima motor?

a paint paddle with a good rag on it works well to clean and polish between the fins !

FXR sure is right. If you are going to use Windex on/or near your
polished aluminum use Windex with vinegar. It is acidic vs normal Windex which is basic (pH).

First, I do not use water on my polished aluminum. To clean, I use "Protect-all" manufactured by Champion's Choice. I've used this on my bikes and show cars for years. To polish, I use "Heavy Metal", (green & white, depending what's needed), or "Semichrome". And yes, I have tried Wenol, Mothers, neverdull etc. Polish using microfiber or all cotton cloth. Do not use Terry cloth! If they burned in a good initial polish and the alloy is a good grade (6061 & better), the surface is easy to maintain. I use the "Pimp Stixx" for those hard to reach areas. Thanks & good luck
