ACF 50 and Brakes
« on: May 06, 2019, 07:28:01 AM »
I'm getting flack for this, but bear with.

So I'm off on deployment for a bit. Cleaned the Bike. (Old xl1000). Let it dry. Removed pads. Sprayed it with ACF 50. As in everywhere. Brakes, wheels the lot. Come back off deployment. Use a degreaser. Clean and rinse. Brake cleaner on all brake parts. Pads back in. THEN ride away........what is the issue with it???

I'm guessing the brakes aren't working very well. ACF 50 is well known for being really difficult to remove. Most places on the bike you don't need to remove it anyway but brake discs and tyres are the one place you don't want any. I would try petrol to clean the discs.

Brakes are like new, as I've rebuilt the calipers.
To be honest, I'm just going to spray degreaser, rinse, bike wash, rinse and spray some cheap brake cleaner on the brakes to be safe. This isn't a regular thing, but a once in a blue moon treatment. I seriously do not believe that after a degreaser, wash and brake cleaner , there's anything to be worried about and it stops the calipers furring up with mould.
