Picking up my Black 1000RR
I posted this on another thread but I've reposted it to try to get some response. Anyway, my dealer called today and said that my Black 1000RR was in. I got to the store just as they were uncrating it. Wow, what a tight, mean, wicked looking package!
I was somewhat dismayed to see that the Honda wing logo was not clear coated on the tank. I remember the Red ones having the logo sealed under clear coat. Is the paint on the Black bikes clear coated at all?
I told the dealer not to clean the bike. It is covered in an oily smeary film. My concern was that they would scratch the paint as they wiped and cleaned the bike. What would be a good way to remove this film? I thought I would wash the bike using S-100 cycle cleaner and hose. Any thoughts? Then I'm going to carefully wax the paint.
I'll post my thoughts on the bike after I put a few miles on it.
