When washing my Z there is always those little scratches where the dirt wont come out, and the residue of dirt that wont come off. My dad says to use like turtle wax or something like that. What does anyone use, or what do you suggest?

After every ride, rinse her off real good, then wash her with a car wash&wax soap. You can buy it anywhere and it realy helps the plastic stay shiney and brite. It will also keep a little wax on the plastic to help make it easier to wash in the first place. Use it about 1 part soap&wax to 5 parts water. Works great.

I was using a tooth brush, and some spay silicone. It takes the dirt out. I am going try the Dawn liquid and Fantastik method next time to see if it is easier.

I also keep a coat of wax on her, and wash w/ car soap.

don't use wd-40, i used it on mine and it actually collected the dust, but pam or fantastic work really well, pam is used to keep the mud off.

Just wax her after every time you wash her and she'll run real good

I wash mine everytime I ride and it still looks perfect. Keep the boots clear on the fenders when you're mounting/dismounting and you'll have a lot less scratches. For some reason I never even come close to catching my boots on the quad, but my Scrambler was always in the way and I'd catch the boot on the fat fenders all the time.

You mean Rain-X? I've never tried it. If u want ur quad to shine use pledge and then u can make it smell like lmeons while ur at it.

After I washed my quad tonight after riding, I dried it, and used Kleen Guard to wax it. On the scratches I used a wet paper towl and Ajax to buff out the dirt. I went over the plastic a few times with the kleen guard...it is really shinny and kind of slippery...:D...thats for the help guys...
