Correct me if I'm wrong here but, the clear coat polished up
with a compound would leave swirls. And wax really doesn't
build up before it wears off.
I just clean it with something mild with elbow grease for the tough
parts and wipe it dry... 
It's getting the bugs off the faring (full-face helmets are a god send)
What's worse, is keeping the grime of the rims.

Eventually I'll stop asking so many questions and start answering some. I guess that's just the way it is with a new GPz owner, especially since it's my first motorcycle as well. My latest question:

Does anyone use polish on their plastics and/or tank? I know the manual says to only use wax, which is non abrasive, but it seems to me that wax won't remove the years worth of gunk that builds up on the bike's surfaces. I think a mild polish would really make my bike look good, but I thought I'd pose the question here before trying.
