How to protect your motorcycle's paint

by Abhishek Nigam23,887 Views7 Comments

So you own a cool looking motorcycle that's pretty much the neighbours' envy and owner's pride. But keeping it that way means you will have to do more than just saddling the bike and riding into the sunset. Protecting your motorcycle's exteriors will determine how cool your bike looks in the long run. So how do we do that?


Motorcycle washing for protecting your paint

 

 

 

Keep it clean

The bike is exposed to a lot of element when you ride it through extreme climatic conditions. So what you have on the bike is grime, muck, dust and then some. Make sure the bike is kept clean at all times. If kept dirty for a long time, the said elements can easily scratch the paint and also wear down on the paints shine. A good wash after that long hard ride will definitely do your bike a world of good

Wax it off

While a wash will clear the dirt off, what you will need is a good polishing job to get the bike to its shining best. A good layer of wax or polish is the best way to protect your paint from the elements. A good polish will make sure that the dust just falls off rather than clinging onto the paint and thereby make cleaning the bike a much easier process. While that takes care of the paint, you also need to look into those matt plastic parts. A good dashboard polish (that one uses for car dashboards) will make sure your matt plastic parts stay in good shape. A good polish session is a must to keep that paint gleaming.
