    Hi and welcome to the forum :cool:
    Any generic car shampoo will do the job, then any furniture polish to shine bits up if needed - anything else is a waste of time and money! :D

    I have two products I can recommend.

    1) A tub of elbow grease.
    2) A bucket of patience.

    the best ratio for optimal results is about 50:50.

    I found that keeping your wash routine simple, with minimal fuss and with as few products as possible means that it will be completed quickly and consequently more often! :D

    I would argue that by using the appropriate products/tools, it makes the job easier and quicker, and possibly required less often ;)

    Depending on how often bike gets dirty will dictate your cleaning regime,if I use bike and it gets fly covered and coated with grime I spray a light coat of scottoiler fs365,I do this about every 3 rides or so then before a proper mucoff and shampoo just hose bike with clean water,this takes all the shit flies and grime off before proper clean just saves you doing thorough clean to rid flies and grime off bike,cheap baby wipes takes any chain lube etc off rear wheel quickly and easily.

    So many products....so little time.
    I've not washed a bike since the '70's.
    I too run a tiger 955i.( And a 1600 tbird).
    Mr Sheen sprayed on then gently wiped off....then the bike wiped again with a clean j cloth.
    Works well for me.
    On the windscreen just ordinary household soap and water....wiped off with a paper kitchen roll.
