I just asked my dealer this question last Friday. Thought it was too small to really get out a bucket of water and a hose. I'd considered using windex and paper towels. My dealer said he cleaned his Harley with alcohol and a chamois.

Ha ha, good one Jim! Have a bone! Actually vodka probably would work well. When I was in England I went to the Pharmacy (Chemist's over there) and tried to buy isopropyl alcohol to clean my tape recorder heads. Turns out they don't sell it cause people would try to drink it. The Chemist told me to go to a bar and buy a shot of vodka as it's almost pure alcohol. So that's what I used to clean my tape deck heads! ;D

As a dealer we make sure our scoots are as clean as they can get. If they need a bath we use a bucket of hot water and blue coral car wash, rinse off with a light spray of water from the hose, and dry with a chamois. For that high gloss shine we use Wizards Mist and Shine, this is an anti-static, anti streak, no silicone, no oily film, no wax, no petroleum and high gloss shine. www.WizardsProducts.com. We also use Wizards for removing dust, and light water spots using a cheese cloth to remove it.
I found this product when I was looking for a spot cleaner for my 1950 Harley Pan Head. Works better than other products I have found.

Be careful about getting underneath the body panels and getting the engine area wet. I use a shower setting on my nozzle and rinse the scoot with an indirect stream. Basically I'm trying to simulate rainfall. Wash with a car wash soap and sponge. I'll use a nylon net "bug sponge" to get the stubborn deposits off. Dry it off using a soft towel or chamois.
I've only polished it once, using Nu-Finish. Left a very high gloss on the paint work. Use Armor All for the black plastic, just don't get any on the seat or floor board!
LOL. That can be either really cool or really nasty (depending on the view I guess).
Back on topic - I just washed mine with some warm water and dish soap. Got the grime and dirt off. I'm wondering if the Windex route might be a good idea for just a quick wipe-down.
I'm going to the store here in a bit and will see what they have for getting it to shine. Still trying to decide if I want to just repaint it or not. The current paint doesn't look too bad (it has some wear) but it looks unimpressive.

I saved this one into my photobucket account and posted it just like any other pic. The other option is to bug the forum administration to get us more emoticons, but I think they have enough problems without us demanding happy faces lol.
