And in case it hasn't been said, wash with cold water in the winter to limit melting and dissolving salt, etc and running it into all the cracks and crevices. :angel12:I've used ACF50 for the past couple of years - give the @ a very liberal coating at the end of the summer and don't use the pressure washer!! ... snip
I use ACF50 , it's bloody expensive abour £15 for a large aerosol can but design specifically for airframes so protecting your varadero's aluminium engine covers is a piece of piss for this stuff my 99 model is used al weathers and still looks show room condition. directions say spray on a cloth and wipe over i just lag the bike then let it run off.I have been using GT85 on all 3 of my bikes, just wonder if anyone can recommand something else and possibly better than GT 85
depends on the type of rubber... USAF strictly prohibit its use on natural rubber, and i cant see the USAF being jumpy about spraying cack on multi million dollar aircraft coz they got nothing better to do... there is a printed warning some where on the suff about it.I sprayed some ACF 50 on a old inner tube about 3 months ago and it looks completely unaffected. Even when stretched it shows no signs of perishing. I have also used ACF 50 on rubber seals for two years with no obvious signs of damage.
