I put everbrite on my 06 after polishing it. After a 9000 mile trip washed bike and dirt and crude washed right off.
I think it is worth it and will do it again if needed.

No Clear Coat, it will react and yellow if you dont prep it right. Everbrite or Flitz will protect them better.

After polishing used SHARKHIDE. Expensive but works great for me down here in Florida. I retreat about every 6 months and the wheels look great.
