You have invested in a bike that you love, and it is important to keep it performing and looking it’s best. It’s also a crucial first step if you have decided to sell your motorcycle, since a spotless-clean bike will get more eyes, and most likely sell quicker and for the price you are looking for. Most important, if you are detailing your bike on a regular basis, it may give you the opportunity to discover mechanical problems that you wouldn’t see otherwise. Always start your cleaning with a cool bike, and in the shade!
The leather on your bike can vary greatly; from a natural aniline leather, to a coated leather or a very high quality vinyl that feels like leather. All these require different leather care. The goal is to keep your seat looking new for a long time , so a good cleaning and protecting with a non-stick protectant should do the job for you.
Motorcycles have many nooks and crannies so an easy and safe way to dry your motorcycle is with an air hose or heated dryer. The heated dryer provides you with high pressure filtered air so you can be sure that you are getting your bike completely dry. Visit Clawson Motorsports Parts Department to check out our heated dryer. It’s a great tool, and If you miss anything , just take a soft microfiber towel to finish drying your bike.
At Clawson Motorsports we know that the paint on your motorcycle should be treated differently than the paint on your car. Depending on condition of the paint on your motorcycle, you may just need a light claying and polish followed by wax or sealant. If your paint has been neglected you may need to machine compound before polishing and waxing.
At Clawson Motorsports we know that detailing your motorcycle takes some time, but be patient. Your efforts will pay off and you will be rewarded with a well-maintained bike that will turn heads.
