This how i have always done a proper valet on my bikes.

1. Jack the bike with front and rear paddock stands and remove both wheels, which are cleaned individually using muc-off and a bottle brush, Chain is cleaned regularly with a quality chain cleaner and relubed.

2. Remove the seat, bag any electrics (ignition switch) etc, Muc-off sprayed on to a wet bike, followed by bottle brushing every nook and cranny, finally Auto Glym shampoo all plastics etc, and pressure wash off, always pay paticular attention to inner of the rear swinging arm, under side of the fairing and the inner front mud guard, Dry off with an air line to remove any sitting water, and shammy as dry as possible

3. Add liberal quantities of autoglym resin and high gloss and buff so it looks like a mirror

4. pop your wheels back on job done

5. Never wash a bike if the weathers shit its best to leave a bike dirty and dry than clean and wet, aluminimum will fur up and look crap.

6. Overall time about 5 hours

Hope this helps
