    Pc 7424

    Ok I am finally first at something! Want to use my 7424 on my Harley. Is the standard 6" pad and weight sufficent or do I need another setup for the bike?

    I've actually found it easier to use 4" pads on my gixxer. I've never worked on a harley though, so i really can't say for sure. I would go out and get a BUNCH of foam applicator pads though... you're going to need it with all the metal polishing in tight areas that you're going to be doing....

    Agreed...4" pads will be easier to work in tighter spaces.

    4" pads are the way to go.

    Make sure to get the 3.5" DA backing plate-

    We carry the swabs as well. The S100 ones are fairly large - http://store.yahoo.com/autogeek/s10012026.html.

    I really like these because of their durability and shape.

    If I use a PC its with a 2 7/8 backing plate and 4" pads. The majority of the time we use air buffers with 2" plate and 3" pads.
