Winter Chrome Protection

Just wondering what everyone does to protect their chrome parts on their scooters. I was thinkig of spraying the chrome with WD40. They say wax only traps moisture, causing rust. Thanks for any suggestions.

Don't know how it works but have heard Pam the cooking spray is a good protector for winter driving.

I put her up in a bag and don't drive myself.

Re: Winter Chrome Protection

GM sell a quart size chrome cleaner/polish that I have use for several years. Seem's to work well. Guess it depends on if it's between rides or for over the winter storage. A rag dampened with rubbing alcohol works too. Cleans off any greasy gunk but don't use it on hot parts and be carefull around paint.

Re: Winter Chrome Protection

I spray the whole bike down with Amsoil MPHD, then wash it in the spring prior to riding. Works great for $7
