In the good old days, I used to apply Vaseline to chrome wheel rims, ride the bike through the winter & remove it come the spring.freyguy17 wrote:I have never used vaseline to coat metal parts. Maybe it would be feasible to spray something like WD 40 on the metal instead. Any thoughts on this?
Products like ACF-50 & XCP are corrosion inhibitors, they are fairly easy to apply, less messy & don't require removing.
Although garaged, condensation can still be an issue, both my bikes are protected with ACF-50. At least there is a barrier between the bare metal etc. & the moisture.
I'm not sure that fuel stabilizers are essential, but if it makes you feel better, then why not, I use Millers Tank Safe.
