I just purchased the Pro Honda Spray Cleaner & Polish to clean my RC. The directions on the can say for use on chrome and unpainted surfaces only??? What's up with that? The guy at the dealer said they just recently changed the label and that it is the same stuff. Did I buy the wrong cleaner? Did they change it? My brother said he uses it on his RC and the guy I bought my bike from said he used it.

Any help/comments would be appreciated. Thanks!

my guess is this is a result from some issues they've had - i was reading 1000rr.net and they were having issues with the Honda Polish removing paint on the repsol rep wheels. i've used the stuff for several years now and only heard of one incident similar, but apparently its becoming more common. i might just switch to a different spray polish b/c its too convenient.

Well, the can has a label stuck on it stating:

NOTE: This product is not intended for sale or use in the following Volatile Organic Compound restrictive states: CA, DE, MD, NJ, NY, PA and DC, and in the states of CT, MA, ME, NH, RI, VA and VT at the time of their effective date of regulation.

So, I'm guessing...yes.

BTW, thanks for the replys everyone!

As long as it says spray polish it is probably the same thing. I used to hate it because it tends to leave a film on paint surfaces. Now, I can't get enough of the stuff. After a long ride the front of the bike is caked with bugs. I just coat the areas full of bugs with Honda polish and let it sit for a minute. The bigs and grime come right off, no problem. After a trackday, the rims get all the nasty rubber and brake dust all over them. Again, coat the rims, let it sit, and when you are done wiping the film off they look new. You can hit any surface with spray polish, that is what makes it so nice.

Yes, the Honda polish as we all know it is no longer for sale on the East Coast. Gotta order a few cases from out of state. Nothing like some good bootlegged Honda polish.

BTW the NJ dealers can't get it anymore either. I stocked up on a few cans and will have to smuggle it in when these are done. Damn EPA!

I am a Honda polish fan but I have heard Silkolene has a competitive product that is even better. When they get rid of one option, there are always others. Just give the shops a week or so and they will have a decent replacement product:)

honda polish works great....just keep it away from aftermarket decals if you have any....i used it for a while and had to replace a decal. other than that you cant beat it.
