ACF50 Treatment Empty ACF50 Treatment

Post  mikeyzf600 Mon Nov 05 2012, 22:51

Hi Guys,

Not sure if anyone's had it done before but I'd thought I'd post my experience up on it.

Went through allyearbiker.co.uk. and picked a person close to my location.

Took my bike there and was greeted with a cuppa, and whenever I fancied another one I could help myself. The person treating the bike started straight to work, degreasing the bike, snow foaming it, treating it with ACF50 and then polishing it.

I was really happy with the service and would highly recommend it, especially for people who ride all year round. Definitely worth the money. Unfortunately I didn't take any pictures. However, it's worth it even if its just for the clean!

For anyone who isn't familiar with ACF50, it's Anti-Corrosion Fluid and it stops corrosion in its tracks, ideal for us when the salt starts hitting the roads.

Regards

Mike

Never had someone do it before but the first thing I did when I got my cat last year was buy a can, remove all the fairings, give her a good deep clean and coated the bike with the stuff.

Found that spraying it on was an expensive way to waste a can so on all but the hard to reach areas I decanted it into a container and painted it on. Supposedly works a treat. It's the first job this year for my new bike though to be honest I won't be riding this one nearly as much through the winter .

I'm thinking of booking mine in for having it done properly, think the next one near me is in 2 weeks. I've always just sprayed it on myself, but probably getting too much in some areas and nothing in others.

Yeh I tried applying it myself before, as you said, got too much in some places and none in others. They manage to get it under the tank and all nooks and crannys which is always nice to know it's protected in places you can't see.

Aye, had this done a couple of times. Pricey but worth it in my opinion.

They put it on using an air mist tool on a compressor so it gets everywhere. Plus it saves me cleaning the bike Smile

Could be a group buy? Roy told me the more bikes he does, the cheaper it is.....
I know he does a few other bike groups in the area, local IAM etc
