    Cleaning water spots from 08 RXP-X brightwork

    I've searched the forum without finding any conversation let alone answer to what the best product is to clean the bright chrome parts of the 08-09 RXP-X.

    My ski stays clean and I only use it in freshwater but I have had a hard time cleaning the water spots from the chrome parts. I have Meguiar's Quik Detailer, but have had mixed results. Is there something better?

    I plan on waxing it as soon as the weather breaks but I really hate seeing the spots when I walk by it in the garage.

    Thanks!

    Mothers Chrome Polish, its a red bottle, I use it on my chrome vents and works like a charm, I also use Mothers Back to Black for the black plastics that take sun damage.

    And I use Meguiar's CARNAUBA wax, or any other carnauba wax will work too, shines better than any other type of wax.

    Veinegar and water or windex is the best for water spots.

    Its plastic not chrome. (fake chrome finish) Meguiars PlastX is what you want to use bro.

    To prevent the spots keep you a shammy in your truck or ski somewhere and wipe them down when you take it out of the water. The same treatment I give my trucks windows after I wash it to prevent the spots from occurring. Water has slight amounts of acid in it.

    Ocman is right also, I always wipe mine when I pull them out of the water. If your riding in some rivers such as our Red River, wipeing doesn't help due to the contaminants in the river. For 1000 mile every small town or city along the way dumps their "treated" waste water into the river before it reaches us, this causes the water spots to really stick to the skis. When riding these waterways I always go straight to the nearest car wash. I keep a fresh clean set of towells or shammys in the truck for hand washing and drying.

    After I am done riding for the day, I spray down the ski with a spray bottle with 50% white vinegar, 50% water mix. Do it in sections, roughly 1/4 of the ski at a time and immediately dry it thoroughly with a towel. My 2005 chrome still looks like new ... super cheap, fast and easy too.
