recently bought my GSXR 600 K2, it came with polished rims. As im new to the scene and ride in all weathers the rims are looking a little worse for wear. Can you tell me which is the best way to clean polished surfaces and which products work best? Thanks in advance!

i could advise

wire wool but im not that nasty

i found muck off is really good for taking the worst off then i normmally follow it up with a good polish like tcut

i find even with a little muck still on there after a good wash tcut seems to work really well with stubborn marks

also alot of elbow grease

Bright metal cleaning

If they really are polished, ie polished and not lacquered, Solvol Autosol is the stuff you need.  I've tried others but that's the only one that I've found that will cut through to bright metal without scratching. 

When you get them back to a good finish (which may take a lot of doing if they've got salt corrosion pitting), try applying a good protector, such as TurtleWax Nano-Tech Wax.

I agree Autosol is very good, also try Peek it's very similar stuff.
