    Where can all-metal polish be used on motorbike?

    Hi

    I have a KTM dirt bike. I would like to know on which parts of the bike I can use all-Metal Polish, specifically:

    1. the rims
    2. the rear swing-arm
    3. sub-frame (aluminium)
    4. engine casing

    Can this product only be used on pure cast aluminium parts without any coating of any kind?

    Well, it depends what all those parts are made of/coated with on your bike.

    But yes, you want to use it on bare metal, whether it is aluminum, stainless, chrome, etc.

    If I remember well,the back of the tub says that it can be used on every metal surface except gold.

    So,unless your dirt bike has gold..............?

    I would only use it on polished metal only.
    Any metal that isn't polished is pores-es, and will keep the product in the metal.
    So be careful and do a test spot first.

    Just out of curiosity, but does the metal polish need to be applied with a hard brush?

    No, a terry cloth or foam appliator will work.

    Hey roger, I just tested out the all metal polish, and it was really disappointing, it was the worst product on the motorcycle kit i had.
