    Yamaha R1 SG and Liquid Sov.

    This is the one I posted the questions about and I`ll repost the befores here

    Steps
    Clay Blackfire
    Pinn ASR PC Yellow 2000 pad
    Pinn SR Pc Blue 2000 Pad
    AIO by hand
    SG X 2
    Liquid Sov

    It`s pretty hard to detail a bike and not miss all the small parts but I found that taking some parts off helped with the polishing I was often wishing I had the 4 inch spot buffing pads. the owner is happy and so am I.

    Befores






    AFTER







    I guess this would be the money shot

    Looks great Patrick. I got my 4" pads from TOL and typically only use them on bikes. They work out great but still many intricate areas you end up doing by hand.

    Great results!

    That looks really great. R1s are such cool looking bikes. One of my detailer coworkers has a bike just like it and he had an idea I thought I might share with you. He used some 3M ClearBra material and installed it on the tank and above the tailight. (I outlined the areas on your bike in Photoshop below.)





    The area on the tank was getting scratched because his leathers would rub against it while he was riding, and tail would occasionally get hit by his boots when he was getting on or off. Anyway, I know ClearBra tends to be a rather polarizing issue among detailers, but I thought this was good application another R1 rider might want to hear about.
