Let's start with what I think is about the most important thing "protect that attitude". I know that isn't where most people start however without it cleaning that scoot will always be a headache. How do I protect it? First, get a motorcycle lift. They're not all that expensive these days. I got mine at Harbor Freight for about $300.00 and I can't tell you how much easier it is to clean any bike. You can get them much cheaper even as little as $60.00 or so. But my point is to get that baby up in the air so you don't have to hurt your knees, back or anything else. Nobody looks forward to kneeling or bending over for hours at a time. Do you think that might be a reason your friend's bikes may not be so clean?
I noticed that the board that's mounted to the hand-cranked lead screw that makes the work surface boards function as a built-in vise, was loose, and flopped around as the handles were cranked. To remedy this, I used a wrench to tighten the crank shaft attachment on the moveable work surface so that there was less play as the unit is cranked. Don't over tighten, or the board won't move at all!
How about a new way to look at cleaning your motorcycle? I'm not going to tell you to make a list of cleaners and polishers as long as your arm. Tell you to go get them and swear to their ability to transform your scooter into the once proud machine that rolled off the line 30 years ago. Let's face it there's too many to list and talk intelligently about. My experience is most riders want a routine that works and they also want to know what they do wrong in the process so they don't get the cleaning DEMON ATTITUDE! I know it isn't easy but I think I can help.
While I have seen some hand painted models it is a skill I have never been able to develop. Most really bang up jobs are done with airbrush. For that I would recommend a Paasche model "H". It is good, durable airbrush that is packaged with three different tips. It is cheaper than an Iwata, though some Hobby Lobby stores carry both and you can usually score one during Hobby Lobby's 40% of sales.
However, the power of e-commerce across the U.S. can never be underestimated, especially around the specialized strategic sales of seasonal holidays, such as Christmas, Thanksgiving, plus the usual Memorial Day weekend deals and Cyber Monday clearance sales. Amazon stated last year that, at its peak, it had actively sold over 300 items every single second of the day!
Additional features of this unit include a 12v DC output socket complete with an overload protection system, a charging level and battery condition indicator all contained in a 14 inch x 13 in box which weighs only 16 Lbs. The booster pack will operate a small lamp for several hours without dimming. The booster pack has a light on the front of the case to provide illumination to your work area as you complete your task.
