    Would you believe I have more money in my ZRX than what I originally paid for my Cessna?

    I might be stretching this thread but more goo came out of a 14 years old Suzuki.







    After a good cleaning. And ACF-50 will be used from now on.

    Old thread but helped me out. Thanks Arash.
    ACF-50 is the way to go. The price is right for me too, connections at work!

    Re: How do you keep your chain lubed and clean is it possible?

    I use the Maxima chain cleaner/lube kit, let the lube sit overnight, then take a WD-40 soaked rag and wipe off the excess...

    Once I run out of the kit, I'll give the ACF-50 a shot!

    turns to concrete? not sure what you mean by that, can it just be washed off after a ride?

    It left some smegma that wasn't easy to remove. Dirt bike gets atf from a spray bottle now.

    Zero fling. Total corrosion protection. No mess, and my chains last longer than my friends that spray all that wax crap on theirs.

    Even if we go ahead and concede that my chains would have lasted longer after being covered in wax which attracts dirt and small rocks I'm getting 20k out of my chains and I'm more than happy to buy new ones at that point, especially without my bike being subjected to a waxy flytrap that collects dirt and rocks in every nook and cranny.


    Following your advice, I'm using ACF-50 on the chain on my Versys but usually clean things up with kerosene first and then apply ACF-50 and wipe it off. The change in the amount of stuff flung off is amazing. And no build up of that disgusting stuff around the front sprocket, either. Bike is at 14K miles and the chain looks good!

    I will also use it on my ZRX when it's back on the road. It's off the road for routine maintenance but the GPz550 project is up on the work stand and i hate leaning over the ZRX to adjust valves.

    The good news is I seem to finally have the GPz550 cams installed correctly! Just going to button it up and see if the SOB runs.

    Does your wife have any clue about that?

    My GPz550 project file--containing all receipts showing money spent--is kept safe at work. My wife has no clue. Hell, I've even lost track at this point but it is beyond ridiculous. I'm going to get a license plate that says
    "LAZARUS." This bike was completely dead before I got it. Probably should have let it rest in peace.

    Yep! She loves my ZRX and admits she doesn’t know much about motorcycles but can easily see how special mine is compared to when we first got it.

    Her only complaint is that it’s too loud for her to take a ride on it but KWICK has a fix for that coming up soon.
