Has any one ever heard of putting wd-40 or tireshine on the bike before trailing it or burying it in mudd, i was told if you do this the mudd and dirt will come right off when washed and it helps protect the plastic. any thoughts?
theres a spray bottle called "son of a gun" i out it on my bike after every wash it makes ur bike look newer and shinyer and if it gets mud on it all you have to do is run the water hose over it and it washes right off .great buy
hard to believe a oil based product would hurt the plastic but then again i guess it all the chemicals in wd-40 that can hurt it. what does the wd-40 do to the plastic would it be ok on the under side or just dont use all together to be safe?.
I use tire foam on all my quads after every wash. Mud comes right of with just a garden hose and it makes the quad look brand new after each wash. I believe the oily residue helps against scratches from sticks branches etc.
If memory serves me correctly, the main ingredient in WD-40 is Kerosene. NOT good for plastics. I suppose if you use it consistently you would be OK but if it dries it expands the pores and allow UV rays to get in.
WD-40 was designed for the aerospace industry as a Water Displacement spray for electrical connections. It was their 40th try, hence the name WD-40.
I buy baby oil and put it in a spray bottle. Works like a champ. I only spray underneath fenders and the hard to reach places. I am sure it will work fine on all of plastic. Just never tried. Everything else I use a pressure washer.
Not sure if i would use baby oil, I've seen people use baby oil on their boats to make them all shiny, looks good but after a little while breaks down the clear coat and eats the paint away. Not sure about plastics.
