That’s a lot simpler and explains where I went wrong last time (2014  :164: ) I was spraying directly onto the bike and it was leaving horrible streak marks.

Just one question, can you polish over it or do you apply after polish or does ACF50 buff up like polish?

Cheers!  :031:

You can use it on black plastics like back to black and on painted surfaces for a shine but IMHO it's greasy there and stays liquid so no buffing like a wax. I only use it on metal parts and black plastic after I have waxed the painted. Bits. It also does a good job at covering the white markings from wax on black plastic.

Wash the bike, polish the bike, remove the seats, cover sensitive areas with rags/plastic bags, spray like a child with water gun, wipe down excess.  Start bike, smoke like a demon from hell, stand back and admire job done.

Simples!

(at this point, all those who polish their bike to the nth degree have a heart attack)  :001:

They look good, but not like they'll give allot of wind/weather protection  :006: :027:
:461:I was considering the Powerbronze ones as they look like they would give much better protection and the satin black version shouldn't look too obtrusive.

Polish it before applying ACF, use sparingly.
Agree good on black plastic and removes white marks from polish on black plastic.

Found a nail in my brand new rear tyre  :023: less than 200 miles on it. Should be repairable as almost in the centre.

Not be too annoyed - but exactly the same thing happened on my previous tyre!!!
