    Help me with detailing my motorcycle

    My motorcycle is about 1yr old now but I'm wondering what are some products I can use (least aggressive) to polish then wax my bike? This is what I'm thinking about doing what are your thoughts

    Wash
    Clay
    Polish (just not sure what polish I want to use but want to use the least aggressive with my DA)
    sealant (maybe, if I do which one)
    wax

    Try Ultimate Polish for the polish, and Ultimate Wax for the sealant.

    Does it have many swirls or other imperfections? Are you trying to correct them, or just give it a nice shine?

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.

    I agree with Davey. If you are looking for a nice wax give M26 a shot.

    Yes it does have few swirls but hard to see b/c it's white do you still recommend your process?

    My other car is white and I know it's harder to correct white because you have to look at the car at various angles to see the correction being done. White can benefit from the process davey listed.

    Yes, definitiely.

    Then if UP is not achieving the correction you're after, you can always step up to UC.
