Trouble I have is my paintwork is 3m protected so areas of the bike I just waxing the film. So use a very soft wax. Visually you can't tell it's on but probably not the same as waxing paint. I have tank all around apart from top area. Nose cone and down by nostrils. Front mudguard and also the curve on the front of the side pieces on front middle section.
I don't have a tank pad cos the 3m protects the paint.
