    Make sure the cleaner doesn't have any wax/polish element to it. I saw a beautiful flat black Harley and asked the guy. He said he uses shampoo to clean the entire bike to ensure there is nothing shiny on it.

    I think I can help you out big time. Let's swap bikes and then you can use all of the high quality polishes and cleaners without worry. See, I'm always thinking about others and how I can help them out.
