S100 corrosion protectant

After the first snow I put my bike away for the winter. Wanting to keep her looking as good as the day I put her away I sprayed all the chrome using the S100 corrosion protectant and let sit according to can for storage. Went to the shed this past weekend for a visit and noticed this S100 turned like a glue on the chrome. Not looking forward to cleaning come spring and more importantly I don't want to rub in any dust or dirt that might stick in fear it will scratch, " How heck do you remove this stuff "? The can say's buff out or use the total cycle cleaner. Buffing is out of the question but does the total cleaner work and will not hurt anything else on bike? Thought I would ask the question before they get me for another sawbuck.

go to a do-it-yourself carwash and spray the bike with hot soapy water. lots of pressure it also gets off bugs and oil.

I have had bad experiences with S100 products.Best to clean with soap and water(or engine cleaner on the engine and chrome) and then just use a good wax.

I've had good results using the S100 protectant. But, i only use it on unprotected surfaces like bolts and other fasteners. If a surface is chromed or painted then it's already protected.

if you are using whatever to reduce condensation on any metal then may I suggest using "Breakfree" CLP its what the military uses on ALL their firearms.

Not saying the S100 is bad, obvious it is doing it's job (bullet proof) Just needed an easy way to remove come the long and awaited spring.

I have been using S100 Corrosion Protectant for years. I use because I ride in the winter also. If you put it on light and buffet it as you do it will protect the bike and it will look great
Next year go a bit lighter with it.
I do not recommend S100 total cycle cleaner it has acid in it and can be bad if left on even a few seconds to long. Just wash it good with any good automotive/motorcycle soap it will be fine. This is S100 Total cycle clean split on a cement floor it use to be gray.

S 100 corrosion protectant review

I have seen some complaints concerning the S100 corrosion protection use on various bikes. I can only say I have used it for almost 15 years on 7 different Harley's. There is no other product on the market that I have found that does what it does. Spray it on anything and it will never do any harm. You have to know how to use it however. Don't spray it on chrome or paint and just leave it dry thick. It will be hard to remove. Spray it on whatever you want and wipe it to a shine immediately. Its best on the black motor finish and will definitely prevent the deterioration of that finish. My 1996 Ultra Classic looks like brand new after 85,000 miles. The talk of it causing flaking of the black finish on the fins of the engine is BS. If anything it prevents that because it prevents the corrosion of the aluminum at the paint-aluminum interface. Those who say it causes that are totally wrong. It works best for the cadmium plated fasteners that are not chrome. they deteriorate so easily and become very dull. Look at all the bikes around and you will see that. The use of S100 on all those fasteners periodically will totally prevent that. You can't wipe it off of those difficult to get at places and it works perfectly. It also keeps the black rubber hoses nice and black in those difficult to reach areas. It is a super product!

I use the S100 Corrosion Protectant. One product S100 got right. You need to use it right.
Coating the Wheels with it and buffing it off makes it some much easier to clean. It does protect the bike in spring when there may still be salt on the road. If you spray the bike and don't wipe it for winter a good washing helps remove it. I prefer to just buff it out.
Spent yesterday in the bike room clean the RGU up. Bike is for riding but when you can't ride clean it up.

Took a break and cleaned on the RGU some more. Just some time to listen to some music and shut the world out for awhile. Applied a good coat of S100 Corrosion Protectant on the places most effected by the nasty roads. Buff it out. The wheels under boards frame ect. Clean the rest of it a bit more. Sure it can't get any cleaner now.
