Okay, so there is this person on Ebay that is selling this formula for a polish for our bikes that is supposed to be better than anything we can buy at the auto stores. Has anyone bought it and tried it yet? If so, how about sharing your thoughts?:whisper:

What's the stuff called?
He doesn't say. It's supposed to be a recipe for making your own from items you can buy over the counter.

A couple more offers like that and I may have to buy it.:beer4u:

You're gonna test some recipe you get of the internet on the finish of your new bike? :unsure: :unsure: :unsure:

Common RG, put that thinking cap back on and call Zaino Bros. ;) ;) ;)

In light of the yearly expenses we spend in order to enjoy riding and customizing our MC’s. The price of gas, soap and wax can triple; I would not economize on any product, regarding quality and reliability for my investment. I would never use or experiment with any unproven formula. Just my humble opinion. But I felt compelled to share it, for what it’s worth.
Good luck & have fun in the kitchen if you decide to venture in…

Didn't say I would use it on my new ride. Figured I'd try it on the riding mower first.

You don't need home remedy. Rely on the real stuff that has already been tested.

I use http://www.metalgloss.com polish and sealer. Excellent price and is worth the money.
I just don't see anything wrong with checking out new products, but some people are afraid to try something new.

Hello RoadGlide. I’m with you and at times agree on trying new products, including some that few of us are unaware of. Often those items turn out to be just one piece of the puzzle. With cleaning products, my concern is what ‘category’ does that e-bay product fall into. A Polish, Glaze or Wax. All three of these products need to compliment and follow the other in order to eliminate swirls & protect the paint, if you want the ‘ultimate shine’. Mixing and matching, often doesn’t work for the best. That’s why Kits were designed.

With a proven product from a reputable mfg, they usually indicated which grade of cutting action a Polish has and their recommendation for a specific Glaze, Sealant and Wax. There are ‘no industry standards’ with terminology in describing Paint Care Products. Especially with the cutting action of a Polish.
#9, #14, #7, Steps 1, 2, 3, 4, open the door ! Come on, what gives with all these mysterious names ? Therefore each of us are on their own in order to find the right combination of products that work well together for our individual needs.

I’ve used some Cleaners that ‘proclaimed’, this is the ‘miracle stuff’. Just as many others here have done the same. Afterwards it turned out to be BS. It’s a gamble I no longer care to take & advise others who care about their paint jobs to purchase and use cleaning products with caution.
