I use Meguires best wax which comes in a black box.
Then I touch up occasionally with there spray wax detailer. I hit the whole machine except seat and handlebars with detailer.
Don't do it below 10 degrees celsius or it will cake and take a long time to dry.
"Super Glaze" by the wax shop or TR3 (blue bottle). Super Glaze goes on and off easier than any wax I have used and provideds a finish that is awesome. TR3 is great, harder to apply but only need to apply it once a year or so. It lasts forever.
In Michigan, you can purchase Zymol at Meijer's or Wal-mart. I have even seen it at some K-Marts. Zymol has all natural ingredients. No harsh chemicals to "yellow" your plastics or nor does it build up on your paint surface like wax's do. It smells like Sun-Tan Lotion! Like Coconut Oil! Excellent stuff! It is in Liquid form and a light blue in color. Simple to apply and Very Easy to come off!
I use Zymol on Everything, Cars, SUV, Motorcycle's, Snowmobiles, Tractor, ATV and Even on my Paintball Guns! (My Bob Long Intimidator Really shines with Zymol) I even waxed my Snowmobile Trailer with it!
In between Waxing, I use the Honda Pro Polish. It comes in a spray can. In the winter, this is all you need to keep them looking like new! No need to get the water hose out!

Actually, I have 9 Ski-Doo's!!!
So, I have one for every day of the week, and two extra! The great part is, I got the wife to understand the need for all of these!
Now the secret of getting my wife to understand is, if you look at the second Mach Z in the picture, the 98, that is the wifes sled! Yep, put you wife on a Mach Z! Piped and Clutched and let her have fun! That's my secret. You see, I have found, wives do not have as much fun when they see their husbands on a new 6,7 or 800 having a great time and they are stuck on a 1980Something Bomber! No-way. Those ladies don't want you on something better! Remember the Ladies are equal! Plus it makes it easier when you need new pipes, V-Force or something else high performance in nature. Because then all you have to say is: Well Honey, Your Sleds Has it, why can't mine!
