    Their web site says wear, high pressure water, long duration exposure, soaps and handing will remove the coating.
    So the value of it is.... :dunno

    PWRCRZR told me about stuff called Fluid Film which we thought might be something to spray on bikes for those who don't wash the bike often....

    another question... when taking the KLR apart there was a lot of dirt and gravel down in the hole where the sparkplug lives which would make it near impossible to check a plug out on the trail without having some dirt go into the engine. Its not something you could deal with without taking off the tank to clean.
    anyone had to deal with this situation?

    Never had to look at a plug on the trail. New one every year. Shop vac and long bristled brush before removing the plug.

    thinking that a good reason (ok, really bad reason, but an apparently logical reason) to need to remove your plug "in the field" would be a "drowning" situation. IF, however, that were to be needed my hope would be that the water from the stream would clean out the plug recess. yeah, yeah, yeah, I know kinda rose-colored- glasses, but here is hoping.

    truth is, IF you would need to remove your plug in the field, you probably have a much bigger concern at that moment than possible dirt. My Grandfather taught me to do the best I could in those situations and try to keep moving forward.

    I have seen a picture of a red bike drowned so bad that it evidently was not worth pulling the plug....:deal

    if you keep repeating the phrase "I can't believe I did that" it will become true...

    Just need to hook up the brake and run a cord for my new/ used heated gear and the hack will be ready. I just got it self-standing last week and I tested seeing if I could mount up........and was thrilled that I could manage it (just barely). :clap. I have a feeling that there will be a lot of tweaking to do after the test ride but, there will be no stopping me now. I will ride another season.....:D
