just want to show a couple pics of my dirt bikes that i constantly have to clean/ detail. the only thing i dont clean on them are the tires because they are the biggest PITA!! lol

first here was my old 02 cr125 I sold, the main detailing that i had to do all the time was polishing the frame, clutch and ignition covers as well as the exhaust, levers and triple clamps. everything else was just alot of cleaning

I sold that cr125 for my current bike an 02 cr250, almost the same mods, polished frame, covers, levers etc. i also polished the swingarm which took about 10 hours of sanding and polishing, at least now it will polish alot easier. the last couple of pics kinda show the swingarm polished

thanks guys,
for those thinking about doing it to their bikes, atvs etc, there is alot of maintenance as far as polishing all of the aluminum, to make it look as good as it does in the pics i have to polish after every ride. as far as the aluminum oxidizing, a coat of wax usually takes care of it for a while

i have to polish after every ride.

That's why i haven't done it in a while it does look good when polished. its getting warmer now so i think ill make a good pre season detail. thanks for posting this.

Quick question, I don't have any dirt bikes and I never detailed a bike before. So I'm wondering how long does it take to detail one?
