Best pre-sealant polish/cleanser

I am looking for a pre-sealant cleanser to remove an existing LSP (I presume a wax) and some very light swirls before applying a sealant (fusso or similar).

It for the bodywork of a new bike, it seems to have had a wax applied at the garage and also has some very minor swirls. I don't have a DA so am looking to do this by hand, I don't want to use a glaze as would prefer to put a long term sealant on for the winter months.

Thanks for your help

Auto Finesse Tough Prep is designed as a pre sealent cleanser, it should do the job. I will use it on my car (albeit with a DA) and then panel wipe it and coat it with Fusso COat 12m.

Bilt Hamber Cleanser Fluid works well, it is a bit pricey but you don't need to use much. Alternatively, you can also use U-Pol panel wipe which is cheaper and usually sold in 5L containers for around £16 - £18

BH Cleanser fluid IPA and other panel wipe products may remove previous products, but they don't clean or cleanse the paint lifting dirt like a pre wax / sealant cleanser will do. This is a key part to the process and one I find very important to the finish and overall dirt removal

Autofinesse tough prep was designed with using a sealant over. Alternatively use your favourite pre wax cleanser and follow it with a IPA or panel wipe wipedown to remove any potential wax or oils left behind.

I thought BH cleanser fluid was a pre wax / sealant cleanser??? Understand IPA or panel wipe isn't but BH advertise theirs for that specific purpose instead of IPA??
