I recently bought my first can of ACF50 after reading a thread on here. The idea was a few squirts in strategic places ready for the winter riding to work etc! Well no sooner had the first couple of sprays gone on and I was off, wiping plastics and bringing the dull black of switches and the air filter cover to a shiny black! This stuff is ridiculously addictive, it goes on everywhere (except brakes, don't do brakes for gods sake don't do brakes!! I accidentally dropped the cloth I had on my rear disk and just wiped it off the disk, no brakes for a couple of miles, and I mean no brakes!). Exhaust is also a bit smokey if you get any on there!!So just beware, a can of this stuff will have you wiping every square cm of your bike in search of shiny protectiveness!!!!

That's how it starts.

You think you'll just give the engine a cover, may as well do the exhuast and oh there's a few bolts looking weathered, I'll give them a squirt. Then you tihnk I'll do the wheels as I don't want them corroding, then...then...then the cans empty! :D

You do end up with one very protected bike, though. :thumbup:

I got a tin of this from work. I take it you haven't put it on paintwork like tank etc? Do you spray it on then wipe, or spray on the cloth then wipe? I've seen it looks pretty thick. Any pics? I love shiny!

I had a friend who was addicted to brake fluid, but he said he could stop any time.

I had a mate addicted to copper slip - I told him it was the start of a slippery slope!

I haven't put it on the paintwork but imagine it would be fine to do so, no doubt someone will be able to say differently if I am wrong. I sprayed it on and wiped the excess off with a cloth, then used the cloth to do plastics, switches, indicators - anything black and in need of a shine really!!! I will try and take a pic and put it on here this week, but I am busy organising a couple of weeks away in sunny Faslane Scotland. Bless work and it's ability to send you to the ends of the earth in mid october!!
