Has anyone used this product? (ACF50 anti-corrosion spray.)

Any good?

It's very good and well worth the money, you just put it on a cloth and apply it in a circular motion, shines up the engine casings real well as well as protecting... I had a Suzuki once, it had a nice gearbox but didn't like the winter too much. Razz

I've bought an aerosol of the stuff and slathered the new bike in it* - applied with a cloth to sensitive bits (near the brakes) and sprayed the engine all over. It certainly looks good and brings a shine to all the metally bits, and the wheels look like new. I'm told I shouldn't wash it off now until spring. I found it was like WD40 but much heavier and "greasier" while still flowing well. We'll see.

* I figured that straight from the dealer plus 40 dry miles is the cleanest it will ever be in my ownership. Cool

Lol, aye, that's the way to do it, It doesn't wash off really unless you put some effort into it, I just use paraffin and a toothbrush to remove it. Embarassed It might look stinking by the end of a winter but it'll be mint underneath. Very Happy

It's good to let it seep in for a few hours before you ride the bike, dries in better.
