    Re: I am doing a motorcycle detail clinic this weekend!

    Here's how it went: I had 3 guys and 4 bikes: 2008 Kawasaki Vulcan, 2013 Suzuki Ninja, and 2 Harleys.

    Started with wheels- Chemical Guys Sticky Wheel & Rim Cleaner, bucket of CG Citrus Wash & Gloss, brushes, microfiber gloves. Lots of spokes. Quickly realized wheels would need claying. CG Heavy Clay Bar and Clay Lube. Lots of tough tar, but didn't want to use strong cleaners on those shiny aluminum wheels.

    Tires: Orange degreaser and brushes. 3 of the 4 had whitewalls.

    Rims: CG MaxCoat WheelGuard

    Leather: Removed the seats and bags and cleaned with Mothers VLR.

    Chemical Guys EcoSmart Waterless wash in bottles. Optimum ONR in bucket with Edgeless Eagle towels. Sprayed down rest of bike, pipes and engine and did a rinseless wash, using brushes for tight spaces.

    Clay: CG Light Clay Bar and Clay Lube. Clayed entire bikes.

    Polishing: CG All In One 1 Step Polish and a Hex Logic White pad. I had a PC 7424Xp and a Cyclo Pro 5 for the guys to use. I demonstrated and did the tough spots. I had 5", 3" and 2" backing plates and pads for the PC. This combo removed 99% of the swirls on even the most swirled up, which was the Kawasaki. And it was unlikely that the novices could mess anything up with that combo of pad and polish!

    Pipes: polished with CG Light Metal Polish and sealed with CG M-Sealer

    Sealant: CG Jet Seal

    Wax: Poor Boys World : Natty Black Paste Wax

    Windshields: CG Streak Free Window Cleaner and then sealed with CG M-Sealer

    Here's a couple of pics I have gotten from the guys so far:
