    Corrosion Control?

    Anyone have any advice on what to use to get a little bit of rust off fork tubes? Is there any spray that I can spray over my metal parts to take the corrosion off or prevent it? It was a gulf coast bike so I guess its that salty air. Thanks.

    Re: Corrosion Control?

    ACF-50 Kills Corrosion On Contact taken from Jaws website contact or order direct from his site

    1/ All Metallic Motorcycles Corrode.

    It is the nature of refined metals to return to their most stable form, that of a metallic oxide. The rate at which metals corrode depends upon their environmental conditions. Metals exposed to salt solution, moisture, and tropical temperatures have the highest rates of corrosion.

    2/ ACF-50 Kills Corrosion On Contact.

    ACF-50 is a state-of-the-art anti-corrosion/lubricating compound that has been specially designed for aviation and aerospace use. It is a clean, clear, non-toxic, ultra-thin fluid compound which leaves a non-greasy atmospheric barrier to protect metal surfaces. ACF-50 will kill corrosion cells on contact and completely remove the moisture from the metal surface. It actively penetrates into seams, lap joints and even beneath rivet heads, expelling moisture and saline solutions (salt water).
    ACF-50, with a dielectric rating of almost 40KV, can be used to great effect on all your electrical connections too.
    It will not only ensure a water proof seal, but stop the dread green coating often seen in plugs and sockets.
    In addition, it can be used on all types of plastics, paints and seals without fear of damage. Of course the upside for us motorcyclists is that it works as well on our bikes as it does on aircraft !

    3/ One Treatment Protects For 24 Months.

    No matter how hot, cold, humid, or salt-laden your atmosphere is, ACF-50 will perform. It will remain effective for up to two years. Exactly how long an ACF-50 treatment will last depends upon how corrosive your motorcycle's environment is, how often you ride, and whether or not your motorcycle is garaged.


    4/ ACF-50 Meets the army Requirements for Type ll and Type lll anti-corrosion chemicals.

    What does this double rating mean? It means that ACF-50 is not restricted to metals only applications. It is approved for use on all metals plus electrical and computerized systems.

    5/ Regular ACF-50 Treatments Will Save You Money.

    One of the biggest costs motorcyclists face is expensive replacement fastners and aluminium parts. ACF_50 will STOP corrosion dead. And it will save you labour charges to. Next time you take your bike in for service, the mechanic will not have to waste valuable time trying to undo the various nuts and bolts that always get rusted up

    THE BOTTOM LINE:

    Treating your motorcycle with ACF-50 will save you money. It is a fact that preventive maintenance is always cheaper than the repair or replacement of costly motorcycle components. Plus, you will have the satisfaction of knowing that your motorcycle investment has received the best corrosion protection available on the market.

    Re: Corrosion Control?

    Good shout CiscoKid I've been using ACF50 for the best part of 8 years now to preserve the bike from our salt covered roads ........... it works.
    I regularly clean the fork tubes and lower yoke and then give them a dose of ACF. The only thing to be aware of is that you shouldn't coat the fork tubes over the area that is used up during suspension travel.


    On removal of rust a gentle rubbing with a fine scotchbrite pad is the most sympathetic way to do it ......... but if the rust has reached the areas covered by the suspension travel you really need to think of a re-chrome / stantion replacement before you start ripping seals.
    Full of Hot air? Intercool yourself............ you know it makes sense

    I don't think the rust that far down the tubes thankfully. I appreciate all the input.

    Re: Corrosion Control?

    To clean up the fork tubes, you may also use some S100 polishing cream and a fine steel wool.
    Works great!

    I use 0000 steel wool and metal polish. Many decent choices for metal polish. I use Blue Magic or Autosol.

    to avoid any chance of capillary type action which interacts with the fork oil.... if this happens the surface tension can be broken and fork oil 'drawn' out of the fork tube by the oil on the outside of the seal.
