Seems like I've heard that sales pitch before. Verbatim.
I ain't selling anything so there ain't no sales pitch, Tex, just fact. I don't give a flying flick if you use the product or not. It works on my bike just fine. You just stick with your "cow wax #7" or what ever you boys in the lone star steak house use these days.Creep said:Seems like I've heard that sales pitch before. Verbatim.
Damn, did they come out with a #7?? I'm still usin the "cow wax #6". Guess I'll have to walk over to the hitchin post and check that new sh!t out!!PTParks said:

#6? Son, you've been standing downwind from the cattle yards too long !! #6 is for polishing Krylon spray paint. #7 is for kitchen appliance enamels. Don't forget to go over it with about an 80 grit wetsand to kill the orange peel and bring out the shine.Creep said:

No. I'd put Zaino and Liqui-Tech in the same class of polishes. Both offer about the same lineup of cleaning and detailing products. My experience is with Zaino, your's appearently is with Liqui-Tech. Both are light-years ahead of conventional waxes and polishes. Boils down to personal preference.Matthew J. said:Does this mean I should throw out my Liqui-Tech????
Oh yeah, good ol' carnuba wax. Goes on sorta easy, comes off kinda easy, looks shiny and lasts, what..., two or three weeks before the shine is gone?!?! That may be OK for a newly painted vehicle leaving the shop but I'd rather ride than buff paint so I use the stuff that lasts.manny said:I have tried every product that has been promoted over the years...Simonize, Turtle Wax, LiquiTek, Eagle One and others. I still use McGuiar's Gold. It is just carnuba wax... I have used it on show cars, show bikes, my Corvette and my motorcycles.
My brother who paints and restores classic Ferarris, Maseratis, Rolls Royces and Bentleys told me a long time ago that nothing can take the place of a couple of coats of Carnuba wax. He said that other products might go on easier or come off easier but wax is wax.
I guess there'll always be as many options as there are opinions about what one is best but I have never seen anything that could replace the shine of a couple of caots of pure carnuba.
...and that goes for west coast, east coast and even Texas. I'd bet that even in the deserts of the middle east the discerning detailers use godd old wax.
Now where's my beer and BBQ ???????
HOLD ON, now, PT. I recall that Creep has the steaks, I got the beer, and you better tell ya' wife that a bunch of hungry bikers are coming by fer beer and bar--b-que this afternoon. She'll like that! A LOT!!!PTParks said:
Oh . Beer and BBQ is where you find it.
I have used this stuff before. I can never get it to rinse off completely. I mean, 10 minutes of straight rinsing and I'm still getting suds off of the bike. However, this past May I rode back from D.C. in a blinding rainstorm. My black and chrome softail was brown and grey by the time I got home. I used a whole spray bottle of the S-100 to clean the bike. It worked, especially on the black engine, but I still brought out the bucket and car wash to go over the bike a second time, just to make sure the S-100 was compeltely gone. Plus, this stuff ain't cheap!!pasadenajim said:
My girl Leece purchased a FXDL last weekend. She had to ride yesterday. In the rain. Washed (guess who, and it wasn't her!) the bike today and used S-100 (I think I have the name of the product correct)....
