959 white cleaning

Hi all. Just bought a white 959 and was wondering can you wax it etc or just a simple Shampoo will do?
Cheers.

You can use any soap on it but if the soap is designed to leave your vehicle looking shiny then it will obviously make your bike look less matte. I have a matte titanium SF and I use chemical guys matte wash and matte wax. Keeps the paint looking like it is supposed to.

Wax is a no no as it doesn't buff properly on a matte surface. I use a product called 303 Aerospace Protectant but it needs to be applied heavily, wiped mostly off then another wipe to get it all uniform. Matte finishes are a bit of a pain. Easy once you get used to the fact it shows things that gloss finishes don't.

Actually [email protected] Wax is not a "no no" for matte finishes. Matte finishes get that look because the surface of the paint is not smooth like a traditional Gloss finish. As long as whatever product wax or sealant you are applying does not "smooth" out that surface you can use it. Here is a link for the 3 products that I use on my bike.

Chemical Guys - Complete Matte Kit - Wash, Spray Detailer and Sealant/Protectant (3 Items)

Thanks all. I'll get some of them products ordered today. Just didn't want to buy anything that would affect it.
