ACF-50

Ultimate corrosion protection

„ Kills existing corrosion and prevents new „ Approved for use on electrics and engines „ Contains no wax, silicon, Teflon or water

A

CF-50 and Corrosion Block were developed by Lear Chemical Research, a Canadian company that has been successfully developing and compounding anti-corrosion lubricants and greases since 1979. ACF-50 was well known in aviation but almost unheard of in the motorcycle world. Back in 2000, John Torring, who worked for the UK distributor Worldwide Aviation based at Bournemouth Airport, treated his Honda Super Blackbird to some of the magic fluid and the motorcycle corrosion prevention legend that is ACF-50 was born.

ACF-50

Fast forward to 2006. Worldwide Aviation was concentrating more on its aviation business and gave us

Europe and beyond on a daily basis from our New Addington location – we are a farreaching concern. There are other products claiming superiority over ACF-50, especially in “lab tests”, but independent comments confirm they don’t reflect this in realworld use. Almost every major motorcycle manufacturer unofficially recommends ACF50 if a dealer encounters corrosion issues, and several manufacturers, importers and distributors have their entire press fleets protected with the product. Apart from

aviation and motorcycle, Lear Chemical Corp products are also active in other markets including industrial, automotive, marine and cycle. We offer pricing to suit all requirements – from a dealership wanting a single box to full line wholesalers. We are also the sole European importers for Clear View polish, which many of you will know as Plexus. Clear View is an identical, better-value product.

If you try to explain to someone what ACF-50 can do, it just sounds like snake oil. A corrosion protectant that can last up to a year; a microscopic coating that stays fluid and penetrate s into fasteners; it kills existing corrosion; it neutralises road salt; it’s ideal for electrical connectio ns and it even brings up matt black paint finishes and unpainted plastics beautifully. To be honest, it sounds like something that you’d find being shouted about from a stall at the local market. But it works. Really well. It’s designed for the aviation market – where corrosion can be a far more the inner rotors of brake disks – it serious issue than on our carried out several tests bikes.

exposed areas that are getting constant abuse from rain and salt (such as my test pieces) will need spraying again – especially the vertical surfaces. Being petroleum-based, it’s also not suitable for use on natural rubber (it can cause it to swell). You could treat it with a silicone spray first, but typically there’s very little – if any – on a modern motorcycl e to worry about. ACF-50 is easy and quick to use, and even if you ride every day and top it up every couple of weeks, you’ll get several months out of one can. Like many riders, I used to give the bike a dusting with good-old WD40 – there’s no denying it’s a useful spray, but the large solvent content isn’t good for your bike… to be fair, this isn’t what it’s designed for. Which was proven when all my test samples rusted long before those coated with ACF-50. If you want to get your bike professionally treated with ACF-50, it’s worth booking allyearbiker.co.uk – for just £65 you’ll get your bike thoroughl y cleaned then fully coated. I also use ACF-50 Corrosion Block grease on all my bolts and bearings, which has the same anti-rust formula, and resists washing out – when I used to ride off-road it did a great job of protecting my bike’s suspension linkage. I know it all sounds too good to be true, but in this case, it really is as good as it’s claimed to be.

One of a number of successful dyno tests was carried out by Simon Gates, BMRC’s Powerbike Rider representative. He returned a very impressive improvement of 12bhp by using the BG POWERPACK 3 (three treatments that incrementally restore power). Initially producing 158 bhp, Simon’s 2009 Yamaha R1 was first treated by BG Engine Performance Concentrate, boosting output to 162bhp, an improvement of 4bhp after only 15 mins on the bike! A subsequent oil flush using BG Engine Performance Restoration, to restore compression, then further cleaning of the injectors using BG44K made an even bigger impact on the BHP, the Yamaha now registering over 169bhp at the next dyno test.

XFORD continues its upward path in 2017 with strong growth both in the UK and abroad. Company turnover will exceed £30m this year and necessitate the building of a 52,500sq.ft extension to Oxford’s 100,000sq.ft distribution facility. This project will include more office space to house an ever-expanding product development team, and a doubling of show room facilities to around 6000sq.ft.

Product development has been at the heart of Oxford’s growth and as a result their range of clothing, locks, luggage and accessories is bigger and better than ever, having benefitted from extensive investment in technology and specialist personnel over recent years. Oxford’s burgeoning Rider Wear range has now reached a size where it benefits from being sub-divided into Adventure, Touring, Sport, Heritage and Urban categories. Oxford is particularly well positioned to benefit from the surge of interest in retro motorcycles and the associated lifestyle. As a result, this theme has spilled out from clothing and into other areas, such as luggage, workshop and styling accessories. At the sporting end of the spectrum, Oxford has enjoyed record exposure through its involvement with British Superbikes and road racing. All three teams supported by

Oxford in 2017 will be competing in both discipines: TYCO/ TAS Racing, JG Speedfit/Bournemouth Kawasaki and Bennetts & Buildbase Suzuki/Hawk Racing. Oxford’s digital media is now at the centre of the company’s marketing drive, with the company’s website and social media benefiting both from significant investment and the wider buzz of activity being generated by the business.

ollowing a management buy-out at the end of last year, new directors Ian Merrill and Mat Dench see product development and improved communication as key to long-term success for Skidmarx.

Skidmarx has been around since 1990 and has built its reputation on the track – supplying race screens to four British Superbike champions over the past 10 years, while on the Isle of Man, famous names including John McGuinness, Michael Dunlop and Ian Hutchinson have raced around the Mountain Course behind specially-developed Skidmarx screens. All of the company’s

road and race screens are made in its Weymouth factory, and the new directors share more than 20 years experience of the production process between them. “Being a manufacturer means that we understand the products inside out” says Mat, “And our trade customers are welcome to contact us with any technical questions, such as how to fit the products or what might best suit a

You can call us on the phone or send us an email, and we’re also upping our game on social media as part of our strategy to make Skidmarx more approachable.” ”We’re very excited to have an opportunity to take Skidmarx to the next level,” adds Ian. “Product development is our top priority and we aim to have screens or huggers available for all the key new models in 2017. We spend a huge amount of time getting the fit right so it’s a hassle-free product to sell.” Road screens account for most of Skidmarx’s turnover, with the race-derived double bubble

screens being most popular with sports bike riders, while tall or ‘flipup’ screens are the choice of tourers and commuters who need more protection from the elements. Lighter race screens are also available for all popular modern track bikes, including many machines ridden in classic series such as the Yamaha TZR and Suzuki RGV. Huggers are also big sellers, and to complete the job Skidmarx offers a choice of bellypans and fairings, all with trade discounts. n

yramid DMS is a cloud-based, integrated Dealer Management System consisting of integrated accounting, stock control, order processing, vehicle management, workshop management, CRM/marketing, eBay and website Integration and despatch and warehousing. Developed for the motorcycle industry, Pyramid DMS brings together a complete suite of modules dedicated to managing every aspect of a motorcycle dealership and trade distribution.

True Track Software, creator of Pyramid, has steadily been gaining traction across the industry over the last four years, attracting key and influential franchised dealers and trade distributors to its customer base. True Track has also established key partnerships with Honda UK, Triumph, Suzuki and now Ducati with composite reporting and CSI/ workshop data that frees up valuable time for dealers to concentrate on what they’re good at – selling bikes. A recognition of Pyramid’s success comes from Honda UK which has just released the results of Honda Motorcycles’ DMS CSI survey. Pyramid DMS took first place in every category: initial set-up, value for money, suitability for bikes, back-up/ support, training, sales function, workshop, parts, accessories, clothing, accounts, management reporting and Honda composite reporting. This is a significant achievement.

Pyramid DMS also caters for trade distributors with a suite of boltons available including a B2B stock management portal, electronic parts catalogue and parts data feeds. True Track’s primary ethos is to develop Pyramid with its customers, which strengthens the product and gives customers a system tailored to their requirements. n

ulcanet was launched at the Geneva Motor Show in 2008. Since then, the flagship product has gained renown around the world due to its superior features and ease of use. There really is no other product like Vulcanet. Vulcanet isn’t a “cleaning product”...

Vulcanet is the ultimate solution to degrease, remove bugs and tar, wash, wax, polish and protect all in one. Not only does Vulcanet do this all at one time, it is specifically formulated to tackle problems such as keeping aluminium and chrome spotless for longer, cleaning whitewall tyres or cleaning seats without causing ‘slip’. It will even clean leathers and apply an anti-rain coat to helmets and visors. It is incredibly easy to use, saves a massive amount of time, and is ultraconvenient as it’s completely waterless and you don’t need numerous products to achieve the same outcome. The end results are astonishing. Vulcanet adds massive value to your business, both in the workshop and

in the showroom. Vulcanet protects showroom bike stock from swirls and makes it look amazing, improving customer engagement. It can also be used to add value to bike sales and servicing by being offered as a predelivery treatment. Vulcanet isn’t a product that sits on your shelves, Team Vulcanet works with you to make sure the product sells. Vulcanet is a product that can be demonstrated in store, which is a great sales method.

„ Unlike other companies, we guarantee satisfaction with our product. „ Unlike other companies, we are so confident that you will love Vulcanet in your business, if you disagree, we will take the product back, no hassle, and more importantly, no risk. Once you begin to retail Vulcanet, customers take over the heavy lifting and sell it to their friends for you.

WMD WORLDS END MOTORCYCLE DISTRIBUTION

Worlds End Motorcycle Distribution – The Parts People

MD is now established as one of the industry’s leading suppliers of service items and hard parts. Okay, we’re not alone in what we do on a day-to-day basis, but how many other wholesalers are able to offer a petrol tank or exhaust system for a Kawasaki Z1, or parts for other 1970s and ’80s machines which are now being profitably restored as modern classics?

When it comes to stock service items, WMD can offer more than just a single brand, often a proprietary brand at a good discount or a budget brand, giving you the opportunity to pass the saving on to your customer who may not need all the benefits of a top brand. For instance, we have DID

chain and the more affordable Swift brand. Likewise, we stock JT and Sunstar sprockets giving you the choice. Also we are the exclusive distributor for Italian-made Brenta brake pads, brake shoes and scooter clutches. The pads cover all materials, sintered, organic and ceramic and applications from race to off-road and we also carry the full range

t: 01273 595746 w www.wmd-online.com

of EBC pads, discs and clutch parts should they be preferred. Additionally, Gecko clutches are part of our portfolio. On suspension, we hold the largest stocks in the UK of YSS components for nextday delivery. In the last 12 months we have shifted more than 2000 Tarozzi fork tubes and we have replacement bushes and seals for all the applications we stock. Our list of accessories may surprise some and includes the Apex range and Vicma levers, mirrors, indicators, tail lights, fuel caps etc. We can also supply genuine manufacturers’ parts

if required. Whichever part of the motorcycle retail, sales and service industry you operate in, we can provide you with a comprehensive stock list, supreme service and unrivalled product knowledge and advice. What’s not to like? n

WE ARE STOCKISTS FOR: Apex accessories; Brenta brake pads and clutches; EBC brake pads, discs and clutches; Hel brake lines; Gecko clutches; JT and Sunstar sprockets; DID and Swift chain; HiFlo filters; Battery Controller chargers; Marving exhausts; Maxxis and Vee Rubber tyres; Motorex lubricants; NGK plugs; Nitro, Motobatt and Yuasa batteries; Skyrich lithium batteries; Slinky Glide cables; Vicma replacement parts; Paolo Tarozzi fork stanchions; YSS shocks, fork valves, steering dampers and forks.
