Motorcycle Winter Protection – ACF50, FS365 or WD40

Before going any further please read the following post :

The above covers the ACF50 product and its current number one condenter for the title of ultimate motorcycle protectant XCP Professional Rust Blocker.

So if that post holds the ‘considered’ top two products, why then the need for this post?  Simply some people havent heard of the products above or have been fed mis-information on the use (or usefulness) of these others.

A few points from my own experience:

  1.  WD40 is brilliant, but not as a winter protection product for a motorcycle, please don’t be using it as that!
  2. FS365 is a good product for frequent use, and by frequent I mean after ever ride, which can be quite costly.
  3. Personally, I use ACF-50 and between applications or after a particularly wet ride out I then cold rinse the bike and give it a good liberal dose of FS365.  I don’t know how necessary that is or isn’t but me me it has left my bikes spotless, winter after winter.

So the this test then is ACF50 v Scott Oiler FS365 and WD40, it was carried out by F2MCLTD who have kindly allowed me to link to their original experiment and findings :

The Ultimate Motorcycle Protection? ACF50 v XCP Rust Blocker

As I have mentioned, demonstrated (and used) I am a huge fan of ACF50 as the main protectant for my motorcycles.  I have been using it for many years and the results still impress me, and make sure any time I am asked ‘what should I use’ I can give and honestly mean a hearty recommendation to ACF50.

However, like all things, products can be improved upon (or worsen with revisions), can be changed, even new products can take an undisputed crown, and for that reason it is important to stay on top of any new developments in the market and keep an eye open for anything new that is making waves.

One such product at the moment seems to be… XCP PRofessional Rust Blocker.

So the big question is, ‘Is this the product to throw ACF50 of its throne?
