Re: ACF 50.... Opinions

Yes Better than using Wd40 or gt85. I a big bottle with a small spray bottle, clean the bike then spray it on and use a 1/4"paint brush or one of wife's make up brushes to work it in to all the nooks and crannies.

Got the Richa trousers bloody good but as a dual layer they can be a bit warm. Even at this time of year. Legs open right out at cuff so quite quick and easy to get on.

Storm Rain Repel
From Infinity Motorcycle.
Works well in getting the rain to bead but needs reapplying every couple days.

I've tried the fairy liquid as an anti fog with some good effect.

I had a pinlock on an Arai tour X that was pretty useless. But the pinlock on my new helmet is pretty good
