I know people going to tell me NOOOO DONT DO THAT, but I use regular detailers (Mcguire's or Maguire's or however you type it) on my flat black and paint has been fine like new.

Hey, I had the same question when I got my SPR. Many folks use plexus plastic cleaner. Some also use Honda spray cleaner - I've tried both and they are effective but you have to take the heavy dirt off the bike before you go mushing around a cloth full of plexus.. Some people will say don't ever use wax but it's fine.. If you use Wax it might look a bit wetter or darker but it will still be matt. As Cag pointed out to me, the matt finish is in the clear coat - So as long as you don't use a cutting polish you won't harm the matt finish with regular wax.

Instead of wax - Paint sealer will also offer great protection with less of a wet look.

Talking Glare

alternatively why not try "Glare" this stuff is ment to be the bussiness, many guys used to shout highly of Glare in the past.

good question about the matt black though, it sure looks good but the cleaning could well be the problem.
