    Acf 50

    I have a spray bottle like the one below

    Got it out to use the other day but when I use the spray it just comes out as a stream, not a mist spray. Is this normal? Im sure it must be better applied as a fine mist.

    I think its best applied via a rag anyway...so you don't get it on the rubber etc

    I found best way is to decant a small amount into the spray bottle and then warm the spray bottle up in boiling water...atomises the ACF much more effectively

    I spray onto a rag and apply it for plastics and likes of front forks, swingarm. Otherwise i spray it directly onto engine and rear shocker then rub with a rag and leave overnite before riding again

    If you've access to a compressor these are good, tenner on eBay
    You have to heat the acf50 to get it to atomise

    As MRD1000 and The MissendenFlyer on YouTube on how to apply ACF50, put the sprayer in warm water. Tried it myself and it works.

    Yeah definitely warm it up, I put it in really hot water and it misted great. However I used a different bottle as to the one you get with the ACF50 I used a 7 Flairosol bottle from Amazon after watching it on YouTube. I did find that same bottle not very good unless you get the ACF50 up to the right temperature.

    Good wee video to demonstrate it Stuart, used on most aircraft. If applied regularly rust will never appear, it can be washed off thought but takes weeks of constant wet riding to do so, if applied monthly your metal will be more than protected. Just keep it away from your brake discs as it will penetrate into the pads and reduce their stopping power.

    Both my bikes get it put on, my GSA is 9 years old this year and has zero rust anywhere.
