There are plenty of videos online that can give you pretty good instructions for cleaning your bike. If you want to do a good job, it is a bit of task. Here are a few of the videos I found. Hopefully, they help you out a bit.

I haven't washed the gunner yet but I used windex to clean the matte finish.

I have an Iron 883 with matte black finish since 2009 and I've used windex to clean it. I got the idea from the Sportster forum. I've done that since and now it continues with the gunner. It never buffs the matte finish.

In my sportster, I just use a regular car wash soap which I will do with the gunner when it gets too dirty.

I was wondering if there is anything that you have to do differently with a matte paint. Have you read anything about this? I imagine that it is more about what not to use, than what to use.
