    aluminum shift and brake levers

    Cleaned up my new 08 Buell this morning by taking a lidded bucket of hot water, some microfibers, and the last few spritzes of TW express spray to the storage unit I am using. Got the rain spray off the exhaust and fenders, and put a coat of slick on the plastic panels and frame with the TW spray wax. Will rub on a coat of Harley Glaze when the temp comes up some day.

    Any input on removing boot scuffs from the shifter and rear brake levers. They are cast aluminum with a sand cast finish and no polish. Boot soles from test rides at the dealership have left a few black scuffs on the levers that microfiber will not remove. A Mr Clean magic eraser perhaps?
