Hi guys, I know everyone recommends Windex for cleaning the paint on my Highball but what about the motor? The motor doesn't look as nice and shiny black as what I would like.

Any suggestions?

I've used the S100 Engine Brightener. Most Harley dealers carry the S100 line of products.

Hey Tav
Motul have a detailing spray here that is for chrome and fairing- it works great if you simply spray it on the engine once the engine has been cleaned. I pressure hose clean my bike but need to be careful that I dont get too close to the engine fins as the paint will peel near the edge (which can be touched up no problems though)

Hi, thanks for the replies. That's for the black wrinkle finish right?

The easiest cleaner is actually a Victory product, Black & Silver Engine Enhancer. I bought some and it is without a doubt the easiest product to use with the least amount of work. The best part is it really works as advertised.

Pure Victory Black & Silver Engine Enhancer is formulated to provide a long-lasting repair to chalked out, chemically burned engines and related parts. This product restores or preserves natural semi-flat black surfaces and provides factory fresh finish without greasy or oily appearance; low sheen. This product has maximum resistance to heat; Extreme durability.

Note: Use of harsh detergents to wash motorcycle minimizes durability.

Directions:

1. Make sure the engine is cool to the touch before application. For maximum appearance and durability the engine should be pre-cleaned with a non-residue cleaner, such as Pure Victory Engine Tire & Wheel cleaner.

2. Spray this product on the engine and allow to dry. Black & Silver Engine Enhancer will spray on white but dries clear.

3. Easily wipe excess from chrome ect.

Windex and water is meant to be the best for the Matt black on the highball I heard.

Thats the stuff I use.

The black engine on my 99 V92 - looks like brand new, shiny black.....just as good as the engine on my new XC.

It really works that simple.....just spray on.

Lasts about 6 months or so.....then just respray. Im still on the first bottle.
