See if you can find a Hondo specific site for your bike. Usually you can find a download there.

V4's the Sabres too! Ox depending on the pitting! Some use marvel oil, some go straight to sand paperwith some type of lube& re spray clear coat! Mine was Farley good shape so I just removed the coating & buff to high gloss with mother's & applied a up date when cleaning the bike! You can also use scotch brite pads or disc!
