    Bugger might have had interest if it were near enough.

    No. because breaking is an opposite force to accellaration, the thread pattern is reversed on the front as opposed to the back

    Well.... there you go, I learned something today.

    I was more concerned with the tread pattern forcing water into the middle instead of towards the edges.

    It also has to do with the way the fabric of the carcass is laid, and joined.

    I found CT18 makes rubber soft and gooey.
    A few of us all got WR450s within a few months of each other, some of us were using CT18 while some were using other products.
    Those of us using CT18 found the rubber surfaces like radiator hoses and handgrips were going tacky and had a build up of dust sticking to the rubber while the other guys had no such problems.
    I stopped using it there and then.

    I need some of that for my old Maxfli DP-30 golf club grips (I'm going retro)! Not 20l though but I'll find a use for the rest.

    Sounds like it has not been diluted enough before use and then not thoroughly rinsed off.
    I have been using CT 18 dam near all my adult life both on motorcycles and trucks, never experienced what you are describing.
    CT 18 is not a substitute for good ole hand washing, it his however an effective cleaner which will not leave a residue once rinsed off.
    Just washed the new steed, I use a foamer with my pressure washer, hand wash, rinse thoroughly, chamois then polish.

    This is my old 1190R with 38K, had a few scars but no worse for wear from using CT18.

    I found a pretty decent quality, dirt cheap multi tool, bought one, and it’s very not bad!!

    https://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B07PGNJ61P

    It’s extremely beefy and heavy duty. Everything on it works and seems over-built. The locking mechanism is unique and intuitive and one of the best features. The knife is sharp and the scissors work pretty well. I tried this sucker out in the garage, doing welding and grinding and modding multi tools. I had some 3mm stainless rod that I cut with the hard wire cutters by putting the tool on the ground with the rod in the jaws, and then standing on the tool. Cut it without a mark on the cutters, and then I did it twice more for 2.3mm rod. I abused this tool and it survived it fine.

    It’s no leatherman or Gerber. If you want a leatherman or Gerber there is no substitute. But if you’re like me and have several bikes, I can’t buy a leatherman to stick under the seat or in the tool roll of each one. That’d get stupid expensive fast, even buying used tools off of eBay.

    This tool is $17, and it hits well above that price point. The drivers are well formed, all the tools open smoothly, the pliers are sprung and open very wide, all the tools are accessible from the outside, the blade is one handed opening, and it has an excellent tool selection. The only thing not so great is its performance cutting stranded wire.

    So if you need a cheap multi tool that actually performs well, this is a great one. Also if your tools tend to walk away $17 is a lot easier to take than the $60-80 a name brand tool with this same functionality costs.

    Charles.

    are you sure it was chemtech ct18?

    superscabby has bottles that look a lot like ct18 on the shelf next to ct ab - both their own brand "superwash" which is green, and another that IO almost picked up by mistake. I've been using ct 18 for decades without issues, with , for example, a ktm 400 that had 7 years of being washed every week and still had the radiator hoses etc
