@Biggrumpy , agree Pledge has been used by bikers, mainly for windscreens, for as many years as I can remember, e.g. +30... But Pledge is oily that smears and requires a bit of buffing to get a shine. Motul isn't oily and takes very little buffing to get desired results. IMHO, no comparison.

This is exactly how I'd describe the difference between the Motul product and the other really good products like Honda Spray Polish (also known as "Original Bike Spirits", Pledge or other products which have been very good for many years. Those products are very effective at cleaning and putting on a nice shine without too much effort. Motul just brings that shine without that little oily residue (which is not terrible), and I like it even more on the matte surfaces.


It is not that the other very good products are difficult to use. The Motul just seems to be even easier.

Always looking for new product Thanks
I use Lucas Slick Mist on my Mustang and works great, it smells like black licorice.

Well I gave it a shot and I'm impressed - especially on the matte surfaces. Thanks for the recommendation.

Decades ago I used to have my bikes painted and pin striped by Damon of Paint by Damon in So CA. He used to do Steve McQueen's bikes, great painter. Anyway he used to tell me "Lemon Pledge the Whole bike!" I did that for years until PLEXUS came along. I'll give the Motul Shine & Go a shot, Certainly cheaper than Plexus

Bought two cans of this shortly after reading. I've done two bikes with it now and I love it. Worked as advertised. Thanks for the info!

Always looking for the better mousetrap, I gave it a try. While it does leave a shine, Gunnert's advice is correct. It is not a cleaner.
We are on well water at the house, and my nemesis is water spots. The Motul product has no effect on them. I did a side-by-side comparison on painted surfaces and glass with Motul, Honda Pro Cleaner, and Lemon Pledge.
Only the Motul spray would not remove the water spots.
It's fine if you start with a clean surface. Very little effort required for a shine.
