Plexus

I currently have a can of Plexus I paid like $36 for.  It is good. 
However, this beats it, by far, for 1/4 of the price. Thank me later.

I only pay about $20 a can for Plexus but that price for three cans is great.

Ive tried many of these, and theyre all good without clear differences that I can tell. The thing I dont like about plexus is that it foams more than Id like. But it is very good at what it does, and some people prefer the foaming options.   

That Honda stuff is fantastic, and I also really like Lucas, which is a liquid trigger spray.

Meguiar's Ultimate Polish for pre-waxing and Meguiar's Hybrid Ceramic Wax. The car detail guys I know recommended the stuff to me and it works exceptionally well.

Try lemon Pledge or Favor.  Inexpensive and works great.  If for some reason you don't like it, you can always use it on furniture.   :305:

I use Autoglym Super Resin Polish, Carplan Black Trim Wax (so much better than Back to Black) on all plastics & good old Autosol for chrome parts.

It's a combo recommended to me by a friend of 20 years whose a bike mechanic & trike/bike fabricator  as well as a rider of 45 years.

I use the Honda pro clean also. Purchased the same deal myself on Amazon. Have squirted the bike off 4 times or so and have used a little more than half of just one of the cans. Stuff works great! For harder bug splatters, I let it soak on for a few minutes.
