I use meguiars gold class wash and wax, as well as the scratch x 2.0 to get rid of blemishes. I also use the quik detailer from either mothers or mequiars in between waxes. It works for me. You can't go wrong with any meguiars or mothers products

Ive used Meguiars before on a car I had and thought it was good, but dont know what it would be like on black, really trying to get that deep black shine.

I Use the meguiars ultimate wax. It's a synthetic so it doesn't leave any white residue. my black paint looks like shiny black liquid and the dust comes off easier.

Turtle Wax Black Box is made specifically for black finishes & I've had decent results-the black tinted detail spray is especially nice and no off colored residue in the crevices.

I very rarely wash my bikes. I simply use Hondaline Polish - it is also sold under the name Original Bike Spirits Spray Cleaner and Wax. Use that once a week, and I never have to wash or wax it... Ive also recently bought FW1 Spray wax - pretty much the same as the Hondaline/Original Spirits.

Last week, some a**hole decided he was going to stick chewing gum all over the front of my bike - this, while parked in a paid lot at work. Jokes on you a**hole - I wax the bike so much, your gum didnt stick!

Years ago, I switched from Meguiars to Zymol to give extra zing when I was showing cars. At the time, Zymol was hard to find. Now, you can get their cleaner wax at Walmart. It's a bit pricey, but gives an exceptional shine. I still have some Gold Class that I use on painted wheels though. Holds up well.

Day to day, I also use the Hondaline spray. I work for a motorcycle escort company and we have to keep our bikes 100% all of the time. Since we ride year around, in all weather, it's not easy to do. All of our riders use the Honda spray and most have started to move over to the Zymol now and S100 carnuba is pretty poplular as well. We don't worry about how long we can make a wax job last since the bikes probably are waxed monthly. Shine and something that makes it easy to clean off road dirt with the Honda spray is what we are interested in.

Can't say for sure about black paint, I can say the best product that I have used is Liquid Glass.

I just polished my Black bike with Liquid Glass using the PreCleaner first. I am please with the results after two coats and plan to add more. I am curious about the durability. Look at the pictures.

wax in straight lines so you don't get the swirl look.
Use micro fiber towels and don't use fabric softener on them when washing them

No tee shirts no bath towels. A good looking polishing job comes from the towel as much as from the wax. One for putting on and two for taking it off. Never let the wax build up on the towel

8ball for Christmas I'm sending you some black and some chrome valve caps. That way when you feeling all sparkly you can use the chrome. For those dark days black caps will get you in a better mood. Merry Christmas.

The best

Ok guys if you want the BEST for everything that you own then check out Zaino Brothers. Read through their web site even if you don't want to use their products and you will be amazed at what you can learn. I am not tied in with them in any way just like to promote Great Products. I use Zaino on two show Corvettes and my Orange 2009 Vegas Jackpot and ALL look great. I have been using their products for over 12 years and have never looked back. I am not at home right now but if anyone is interested I can post the dealers name and contact information that I use or you can just contact who you want NP. It is very important with this product to follow the instructions ( as we all should do with any product) beleave me try it and you will LOVE IT. Just my two cents but hope you al least check out their web site
