The bike needed a full service so thought it was about time it was done properly. Stipped it down prewashed the bike with the normal muc off, Used a Meguiars clay kit to get some stubborn stuff out of the clear coat ( this stuff is great), followed that up with a cleaning with Demon shine active cleaner and finally dried it off and buffed with polish. Forgot to add the wax to seal the polish but it looks great. FOllowed it up with cleaning out the drive train. Thought this was the best time to grease the headset.  The Marine grease took way to long to arrive but it finally did and it’s not in, you can tell from thick the grease is that it is going to offer a great waterproof barrier and fingers crossed stop any corroding and last a bit longer while prolonging the bearings. I will check again in about 3/4 months time to see how the bearings are. All in all, it was a great process above you have the full cleaning process with the items used. Below is the finished service and the cleanest my bike has looked since it was new.
