In fairness, on a new bike that’s probably not going to show until it’s clocked a few miles on it (although riding on salt laden roads will accelerate the process quite dramatically), but our view is that prevention is better, and usually cheaper, than cure. Other benefits; you’ll see some comments where customer think their bikes look better than out of the showroom when we’ve finished, generally because we use our own high quality wax’s and of course the ACF50 is applied as per the manufacturers recommended process so you know it’s going to work to it’s best potential. We give all bikes the full treatment, most brand new bikes have a ‘transit’ wax coating applied to them. The first stage in our treatment process is a degrease and foam clean designed to remove this and any other wax, road dirt etc that’s on the bike. ACF50 uses polar bonding to adhere to metals so removing these coatings first gives it the best possible bonding to a clean surface with no barriers in the way.
