Matte paint


Recommended Posts

I've got the 2015 matte gray model. I'm not a fan of matte paint, so I've been waxing and polishing with Meguires Ultimate compound and Meguires Ultimate liquid wax. Been using the wax for a couple years and love it.

I don't like not using wax and that stuff works on ALL surfaces on bikes and cars without leaving any white residue. Only thing I do counter to the directions is buff it in with a damp rag and wipe it off immediately with a dry cloth. 

Except for the front fender which I think is not painted, and the pass. peg brackets, I'm getting a nice semi-gloss to the paint, even on the frame. I like it.

I wish matte finishes would go away.
