    I use a carauba based wax wash to clean bike and chrome parts, then either gt85 to protect( has PTFE in it) or if I feel like polishing then meguiars all metal motorcycle polish. I like that it smells of cherries when you put it on and then when you ride a few miles you can smell it then as well, lol, seriously though it can polish up metal very well.

    For winter and when i think salt is on our roads then everything gets some acf 50

    For chrome and alloy bits I always use Autosol.
    Scottoiler FS365 sprayed on in the winter months.

    Autoglym Metal Polish for chrome and alloy, I've not found anything as good and I've used a few different products. It seems to leave behind some sort of protective wax that stops the alloy dulling.
