Meguiar's #47 Water Spot Remover is great.
I got to try some of Meguiar's #47 Water Spot remover today. I ride a lake in the Phoenix area and we know hard water around here. Add to that our very dry climate with 100+ temperatures and your Doo will spot up in a heartbeat. I gave up trying to keep up and I only really clean my Doos up in the Fall.
The Meguiar's worked really great. It sticks to vertical surfaces very well too. The painted surfaces & gelcoat came clean with 1 application. The Chrome took a few trys and some Windex for the leftover streaks, but came as clean as new. It even helped the sponsens a lot, but a more caustic solution like WonderFoam still handled them better.
I can't help but recommend the Meguiar's. The waterspots came off with a lot less effort than anything I have tried before plus, no Abrasives needed and that's a first.

I've been using a spray bottle filled with a vinager and water mix. Spray it on, wipe it with a terry covered wax applicator, and rinse with water.
It kind of smells like pickles while you're doing it but it really gets the water spots off the black hull and chrome.

Anything made by Meguiar's is tops in my book! Been using their products for years. Their new Tech Wax for autos is outstanding. Only drawback is it doesn't last long but then again I have 3 black vehicles.

Vinager & Water (or just vinager), isn't strong enough for the stuff our water leaves behind.

I've found newspaper today doesn't work as good as it did years ago. Has to do with the earth friendly inks they use now.
Love the nose Tom.
Is the water so hard or is it the super heat? There is always trade offs for being able to play year round.

I usually wipe mine down with a shammy after every ride soaks up the water real good, but with it being so hot lately I mix CLR with some water.....works like a charm!
