Metal polish - Wenol

Wenol Metal Polish

wBW Reviews Home

If you own a motorcycle, you've probably come across an advertisement for Wenol at some time or another.  Fortunately, most European motorcycles don't have a lot of chrome or metal that needs polishing, but after a while, pipes and mufflers can start to look pretty sad, and almost every bike has a few bits and pieces of chrome or aluminum that get tarnished.  I've resisted the chore of cleaning the metal bits on my bikes for quite some time, so this was a good opportunity to try out this product.

The bad news is that there is no 21st century instant solution to polishing metal -- unfortunately, it's still a tedious chore.  

The good news is that Wenol works.  The worst condition of tarnishing I could find was on a set of header pipes pictured on the bike below. I tried using another brand of metal polish I had laying around on for comparison, and the results were pretty lame.  The Wenol brought up a nice shine on the pipes, but you have to rub pretty hard to do it.  It's nice to know that when I get the energy to attack all the metal bits on my bikes that Wenol is up to the challenge!

Here are the header pipes after using "Brand X" metal polish.  You can see it didn't do much.

Here are the same pipes after the Wenol treatment.  It brought out a nice shine
