Nobody knows chrome like Harley Davidson®. It’s rather iconic to the Harley® brand, playing a huge role in the overall aesthetic of the bikes. So it makes sense to know how to correctly clean and polish your chrome to maintain that factory finish shine and longevity.
Step 1. Give your motorcycle some much needed attention and bath it in a thorough wash. Click here to check out how to safely wash your motorcycle! Make sure you give the chrome a good clean, removing any surface grime and muck. Ignoring this stage may result in you unintentionally scratching the chrome in the upcoming steps.
Step 2. Once the bike is completely dry, identify all the Industrial Hard Chrome you wish to clean. Grab yourself a jar of Harley-Davidson® Chrome Clean & Shine cream. It’s wax free and detergent resistant so your bright reflective surfaces will stay that way for a long long time. The Harley’s® Chrome Clean & Shine acts as a protective layer on the chrome.
Step 3. When using the Chrome Clean & Shine cream, use a soft cloth for application and a microfiber towel to buff the residue off. Polish in straight lines to avoid swirls.
Step 4. The same technique can be applied to aluminium and stainless steel finishes, to make them shine like new.
Step 5. Congratulations! It's that easy to make your Harley® Chrome to have that factory shine shine again!
