    Picked up my first 4 stroke

    Sold my SPI,XP, and ZXI and picked up a 2010 FZS SHO today. What a difference! Ski has a little dock rash up front and a little nick into the fiberglass below the hood. Got the stealership down $700 and the trailer for free with the cosmetic damage. Had 18.7 hrs on it. Went out and put a couple on it today and I had a blast. Haven't got to get on it like I want because I got jacked up by the XP 2 weeks ago today and I am still nursing a knee injury. Whats the best way to clean the ski after a day of riding. I just used bottled water(its all i had) today and absorber. Still left water spots and I'd like to keep her as clean as possible. Heres a few crappy pics for now.

    For the black trim I use turtle wax trim restorer.
    It's very good.
    It took my grey sun faded trim and made it black again.
    As far as basic cleaning I use car wash soap with wax in it.
    It doesn't make u slip but shines it up good.

    If you have hard water in your area the spots are going to be hard not to have.

    Even the lake has hard water it seems and the city water here is real bad. I will grab some of the meguiars wash i seen that had wax and try out the turtle wax restorer. Thanks man !

    Don't use the trim restorer on the mats.
    It will make the slippery.

    I've got a red and black RXT. Tell me about water spots. I use white vinegar and water to wipe it down after riding. Just mix up a bottle and use a waxing sponge. Wet the ski, wipe with mixture, rinse off with hose on fine spray.
    It can smell like a pickle while you're doing it, but it really works on the water spots.
