    Hey guys, I got a pair of Fat Boys, the 95th and 105th that looks really nice when I spend hours detailing them after long hauls and rough weather. But can not get the black paint on the engines to come clean. Always has the gray tinge to it. Any suggestions on tidying up this little matter would be appreciated.

    I used S100 ($9 for 8 oz.) and my engine looks like new. The product comes out of the
    s100 can in a super fine mist. I've heard pig spit does the same for less, I'll try it next.

    Pledge works good to brighten it back up. I sure alot of people on this forum will verify cause this is where I got it from, it works great on everything.

    +1 on the s100 engine brite. I have used it for years with great results. Use lightly though.

    I'd keep it off the grips, shields & tires; otherwise - go to town w/it.
