Senior Road Test, Adam Child, rides 1000s of winter miles. Protecting his bike from salt and grime is important. He's been testing FS365 Corrosion Protector from Scottoiler for the last six months and here are his thoughts.
There’s nothing worse than watching your bike slowly being destroyed by winter salt and grime. It’s painful. However, there is a solution to help you fight the battle - Scottoiler’s FS 365. The water-based corrosion protectant leaves a protective film on all surfaces of the bike; including bodywork, the engine and even downpipes. Use it liberally after you’ve cleaned your bike and it helps win the fight against winter corrosion. I’ve been using FS 365 all-winter on my Yamaha R6 long-termer and it shows. It’s now much easier to clean and it doesn’t look like it’s had a hard winter. The mechanical parts still look good even after a quick clean and it’s so good I’ve even started using on my classic VW Campervan, too.
It helps stop winter corrosion, but you still need to keep your bike maintained alongside it. It will only slow the process down and is not a 100% deterrent. However, once you’ve used it, you can’t ever go without it.
