Hey all you Arctic White owners. Have you found any particular type of paint care system that you think works best? Traditional car wax? Polish? Brand? etc.? Thanks.

There are a ton of posts regarding this... I'm sure someone will respond though. (I have a red one)

Arctic Silk White Care and Maintenance <- Very good thread.

Summary:
  • WD40 to remove the silcon based chain lube from red rims and the tail
  • Wash it by any method
  • Wax it by any method, won't affect matte finish
  • Dingo to say something about Honda cleaning product

Basics of paint maintenance apply regardless - minimize contact to surface while cleaning.

If you really want to keep it pristine, go look into auto detailing forums about upkeep methods as they're a lot more correct than anything anyone here will say. There's opportunity to get a matte finish protective coating, but nothing updated back on the recent thread: Film Protection Coverage & Opti-Coat

thanks @djshrug

Definitely going to get some of the chemical guys stuff that is mentioned in the video. Whatever it takes i really do think the AWS 959 is one of the best looking motorcycles ever made. Which is why I decided to pull the trigger after years of Ducati Dreaming lol.

The link that DJ Shrug put up before is exactly what I used, I bought the Chemical Guys stuff. Tbh, it didn't seem to make too much of a difference and it was pretty expensive (and took a while to get here too). I always found soapy water worked fine with my previous 959.

I am militant with wiping it down with a damp microfiber after pretty much every ride so nothing has hit my paint yet except water which has worked really well, including the back wheel =). With the death of the Twin in the superbikes i think i might be hanging onto this one for a pretty long time so I want to keep it as perfect as possible.

Yes, but I'm sure you can get it cheaper. I paid $5.xx per can when I got them last
