    Wow! That's a wide open question, SG! First of all... welcome.

    Naked bike or full dress, or something in between? Spoked wheels? How much chrome? Bags? Chain drive or not? You get my drift?

    I can't remember spending less than two hours on the cleanest scooter, but two days would not be out of the question. Sorry... not much help. Got pics?

    Good luck!

    This one is an '09 Street Glide I did. Just the wash alone took 4 hours. I'd say I had over 10 hours in it with paint correction.

    My old GSXR-750 K3 model used to take me 2-3 hrs.Only because my Titanium Yoshimura exhaust and wheels needed special attention.Done it in 1 hr once...then again thats hard to answer.My friends Harley Fatboy took me nearly all day...
