Years ago, I bought enough crap from the stealer that they gave me this bucket with all sorts of goodies in it. One of the things was a bottle of HD "Leather Care" treatment. The stock number on the bottle is 98263-95V. Of all the Harley products they sell for shining up the scoot, this was some of the best stuff I have used...it actually worked. Problem is, I haven't seen the stuff in years. I assume they changed it from the cylindrical bottle to the conventional bottle all of their other stuff comes in.

That is what Fox Creek Leather recommends.


If Fox Creek recommends it, I trust it.

I have used the small container of leather dressing that came with the bike when I purchased it new; no part number on the 2.5 oz container though. I have applied the leather dressing a couple time each year to the saddlebags since purchased in June 2012 and still have 80% of the product. No pigment with this product and it leaves the surface a little glossy.

I also have Doc Bailey's Leather Black that I have used on my leather gloves. It has a black pigment that can restore color to faded leather. I have not used this on my RKC leather saddlebags but I don't see why it couldn't be done. This product can be buffed if desired to provide greater shine.

Doc Bailey's is the best stuff there is for black leather, period.

Obenauf's has a line of leather cleaner and treatment that I tried after researching on line. Doc Bailys is also rated high. Mink oil is an old stand by that is probably part of the formula in most leather treatment products.

I'll spray wash first if they are really dirty. Then pre-clean with pledge. Then the special formula stuff. The pledge gets rid of a lot of gunk and makes it easier for your leather treatment stuff to work.

Some folks get all caught up in the newest and greatest, but Neatsfoot oil has been working for centuries . :nod

I tried neatsfoot before on one the straps with unimpressive results, it did however work great on an old rifle sling
