They should spend less time and resources on cleaning products and FINALLY issue a recall on their now infamous cam bearing fiasco.

One of these days someone is going to get killed by it! If it has not happened already.

Since rubbies like longride and Buzglyd spend more time polishing their steeds than riding them it only makes sense that HD should try to cash in with their own line of relabelled overpriced products you can buy at Wal-Mart.

Harley products cleaning a Vulcan?? Blasphemy! Heresy! "The Passion" will have less controversy than this despicable display! I have to consult with the Gray PonyTailed Brotherhood about a possible boycott of MO. Heads will roll!

Default Re: Scandalous !

Having Ms.Kimmie out scrubing bikes in this weather, you should be ashamed. 33' and foggy riding in this morning, had to scrape ice off my faceshield a few times but my new D220's stick well, and my JR ballistic 4.0 keeps me toasty

This set looks like a good group of products if you want to spend money, I go the Simple Green-Maguires soap-Dish rag-empty Costco soap bucket route myself. The best wax I've found is Zymol, but I guess if you want to be a company man you'll have the Official Factory Cleaning Set. The bucket seats a good idea, I usually wind up sitting on a garage couch cushion.

MCN has a good artical on TC88 cam bearings this month, the factory's policy on this isn't the best course of action, given the price and image of their products.

Triumph of Salt Lake, opening march 18th @ 215, North Redwood road, has your new Speed Triple ready and waiting, Sir.

I don't know if they use Harley Davidson cleaning products on it, I guess you could ask.

I like Honda's cleaner/polish on my BMW r1100s and F150. Work pretty good.

You'll never get the desired results using the products on a cheap imitation (troll, troll, troll).



I've used several of H-Ds cleaning products and find them to work quite well. They aren't as expensive if you buy them individually.That stupid bucket is a poser joke at $60.



Don't forget the S100. It is without a doubt the best motorcycle cleaning product ever.

Isn't there some Star Trek product that would be more suitable for a Vulcan?



Start the protest now longride. I'm fixin' to grow some grey hair real soon!
