Wolfman waterproofing on Enduro baga

What are you using to spray on your Wolfman bags for waterproofing? Just picked up a set of E-12s and want to spray them before mounting on the bike.

Cyclerack

+1 for the cyclerack. Have it on the CRF250L. I think it transfers weight forward off the subframe due to the design.

also +1 for the Dupont chain wax.
