    Dirt Bike Detail Why not

    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

    Your bikes look awesome

    You never see dirt bikes looking that good - a credit to you.

We can go out for a drive without her makeup and she looks fine. If I want to take the black one out, it is three or four hours in the "bathroom" to get ready.

    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

    Re: Dirt Bike Detail Why not

    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?
