Cleaning Painted Inner Fairing

What do you all use to clean and protect your painted inner fairings?

I've got a gloss black on my RGS and don't want to end of with scratches...

Thanks for any feedback.

Treat it just like the rest of your painted tins.
PS. All the inner's are painted. The RGC/Ultra's is just flat black.

Yes agree it might be a little harder to reach everything but wash and a good waxing.

Are the new gloss black fairings painted or is it another type of treatment similar to jell coat or some color through plastic? I thought a dealer employee told me last year that the black wasn't paint. No clue if that is true.

Your first mistake is , you listened to your dealer. You can always take a piece of sandpaper and find out .

Oh I didn't listen to him, I just heard what he said. As with most things he says I wondered if it was true.

I don't use wax on my bike. I prefer Zaino Bros polymer based products for protection and shine.

I like this stuff

For the most possible protection, ceramic paint coating. It will last for years on a car that lives outside. On a bike, it will be there till you polish it off. Best protection money can buy
