    2004 Yamaha V-Star 650

    This bike came to me thanks to my previously works I've done. The owner told me that he bought it used and the bike has had 2 different owners that never have really used it and had never taken care of it. He has owned it for a couple of months and used it but never done any deep cleaning.

    Prodcuts
    -Shampoo Plus
    -Clean some parts with APC and a wheel brush
    -Deep clean chrome with S100 Polishing Soap (and some other metals parts)
    -Clay with mild clay bar with M34
    -M105 with rotary
    -M205 on Flex
    -S100 Shine Enhancing Cleanser
    -M20 on G110
    -Meguiar's Chrome Polish
    -NXT All Metal Polish
    -PlastX
    -Inspect and final wipe with M135
    -Leather Cleaner Conditioner
    -M40

    Before
























    Went to sleep to rest for the next day


    After












































    Thanks for looking

    Francis,
    Great work as always. You really made that bike pop. From the chrome to the flake in the paint. Excellent work. great results.
    quality creates its own demand

    That's part of the paint, a custom job the owner did to it
