Well we now have salt on the roads so it is time to winterize and clean up the Vrod.

I have some Mothers Billet polish that I will use for the first time and am really looking foward to seeing the difference from the regular Mothers.

When I am finished polishing the wheels should I put any kind of was on them to protect the finish over the winter. Something like a paste wax or there abouts.

Thanks
Ken

I use WICKED metal polish and CarWell CP-90 for corrosion control. Once a year with the CarWell, and for areas where its just bare metal and nothing else, every 6-months. CarWell is the only stuff used by the Army and Marines on their tactical equipment, been tested by both branches and been found to be the best.

Re the Metal Sealer, can you give a bit more info?
I was recommended this product some time ago, and posted info on it on this site, but no one seemed to have any experience with it.
They don't sell in Australia, so I will have to import some. The said they would ship it to me.
Any information is appreiciated, as I'm right on the Ocean down here.

Best wishes mate.

Ken.

Hey Ken,
The metal gloss and sealer work absolutely great. When you polish any metal you have to mix the sealer and gloss and rub it on and off without letting it dry. I use the sealer on my paint as well, which results in me only having to splash her down when she gets dirty.The shine is outstanding. If you put this stuff on the bottom of a beer can and rub a bit, it really looks like it has been chromed. I have ridden her in a lot of rain and normally when she stands you see all the water marks on the metal that require a hell of a lot of elbow grease to clean, no more with this stuff.
Good luck
Derek

Kaz,

Sometimes you just don't have a choice. I went to the H-D 100th with some friends, and had to ride in the rain for 12 hours to get home. :ithappens

Spent 3 hours cleaning it the next day...

Kaz,

So your bikes are trailer queens, huh? ;) Unfortuntely, I don't have that kind of cash.... :broke

Anyway, it was kinda fun. There were 5 of us on bikes, and no one would give in and pull over for the night. Definitely an event that we won't forget...

G'day Dereck.
Thanks for the info mate, I'll certainly order some.
I emailed Ozzy yesterday, to see if they would ship me their polishing kit (polish and polishing ball). Hope so, as the polishing ball would be a major time saver.

Best wishes.

Ken.

One great think about the V-Rod...
If you are giving rides on it... she's got to have a narrow ass!
