I've used clay on just about any hard surface and can't recall it ever causing a problem.

RoadHawg 0000 steel wool or a wet SOS pad works best on chrome pipes to remove road grime and burnt mud etc.

I used clay for the first time this spring, Meguires that I bought at WallyWorld, worked OK but I wasn't super impressed. While working on the same job my crappy old buffer took a dump. I had been eyeing Adam's kits with the the Cyclo polishers for a couple years, decided it was time to get one.

Along with the kit came some of their clay bar, which I then tried on another car. HUGE difference, I was picking up far more crud with the Adam's clay, so much so that I went back and re-did the first car and got more crud off than the first time.

I used it on the bike, backs of my saddle bags had felt like sand paper, little lumps of crud that wouldn't wash off, wouldn't come off with any of my normal cleaners. The clay and detail spray took it right off.

Yes, clay works.

This summer I've nearly become obsessed with detailing and clean cars. I detailed a Jeep Liberty and an F150 in order to sell them, when I got done I was wondering why i was selling them. Both sold for good money to the first people that looked at them.
It's work, it takes time, but it's satisfying when it's done. Only problem now is that Adam's is getting a crap load of my money.(hint, gallons are WAY cheaper)

anonymous_1 I used the Mother's kit on my truck to get the tree sap off. Worked great. Then a couple years later the clear coat started peeling off, probably didn't wax it enough afterwards. So keep that in mind, it strips everything off your paint.

PFWiz Mother's makes a kit with everything you need. Enough to do the bike twice. Good kit for beginners...
