    Zaino would not be the best choice on black. It is very reflective, but not real deep.

    S100 is very good on black and you can get it for around $15 at a Harley dealer. Pinnacle Souveran is incredible on black (a bit deeper than S100, but not much) and it runs $70 for an 8 oz jar. Just do a google search of Pinnacle Souveran and you will pull up a bunch of places to order it from.

    The main thing with black though is to make sure you polish it propery. No wax in the world will look it's best if the paint isn't as swirl and scratch free as possible. There are a ton of products in the product list.

    Don't use anything with silicone, or petrolium oil it will make rainbows.

    Who told you this? Almost all waxes have some silicones or petroleum distillates in them. If you are getting 'rainbows', it is because some excess residue it being left behind.

    Here's my car after S100 cleanser, then S100 wax.

    Notice the reflection of the trees in the doors, and near the bottom of the front bumper, you can see the concrete.
