    I use Motul M3 Perfect Leather cleaner (get mine from sportsbikeshop).. It doesn't make the leather too shiny and smells good too.

    That’s one of the things I’m worried about, I didn’t want to change the colour and it is a Matt soft leather

    I've not tried it on a matt leather finish, but it's more of a liquid/cream that might soak in - but I'd test it on a small area that wouldn't annoy you if it went shiny first. I'd probably ask the place you bought it from for advice too.

    I wonder if the orange is more susceptible to lifting? I had dull bits all over the wheels...everything seemed to take it off!

    Is the jacket treated Bazza as in water resistant? A lot of leathers are now...if that's the case then a warm damp cloth gently dabbed on the flies should be ok and get them off. That's if you don't want to buy anything specific. I use that method on everything I've got usually once a year if I can be arsed and it all comes off
