Have a new black fatboy on order. Any special care (waxing, polish, etc.) for HD black paint?

Nothing really special except that black shows swirl marks VERY easily. Be cautious on what you use to wipe or dry your bike off. Always use a damp cloth when rubbing on your paint. The clear coat will swirl up fairly easily.

As for wax, I use Zaino and it works very well. The more coats you apply, the better it looks.

Enjoy your ride when it arrives. Gonna be hard waiting!

How best to get rid of swirls in black paint (don't ask ....)? Polish or a light rubbing compound?

Don't use either on a clear coat. You will damage the coat for good. They have special polishes for clear coats that will get rid of the swirls. I have used the Wax Shop liquid polish with success but there is probably better stuff out there.

Scratch-X

I just started using Scratch-X. I think McGuires (sp) makes it. It works real well. Use that, then put on a few coats of Crnuba, You're good to go......

Black is such a pain but it looks so good......
