for Motorcycle Engine
Cases, black plastic cleaner and more
I have to admit that I was
prepared to be under-whelmed by this product. I'm not sure
why; maybe it's the packaging that didn't do it for me, or maybe
it's that I couldn't quite figure out what it was really
for. An "engine brightener"?
What was that
supposed to mean? It claims on the label to be good for
paint, plastics, and rubber, then it talks about "grayed
out" engine casings.
So I left this test for last. I have plenty of black engine
casings that were getting pretty "grayed out", so I
tried a spritz or two on an unobtrusive spot.
I have to tell
you I was really amazed at how S100 works! It really did
turn a "grayed out" black painted engine part into
something that looks brand new!
I went back and read the label again and it claims to be a
"technological breakthrough" that can "take the
heat" and bring the factory black look back to life. I
It's kind of a weird product -- you spray it on, it leaves a kind
of film that almost dries; then after a minute or so you wipe off the remainder. It actually does feel like it
"lubricates" the painted surface of the metal!
My skepticism caused me to hastily apply the product, but I now
feel that it will work even better if you first clean the parts
you're going to use it on. I'm going to try it on everything
around my engine now that I know how good it works.
Here's a shot of the
lower front section of an engine, right behind the front
wheel. This area takes a beating from mud, road grime and
stone chips. I didn't bother cleaning before I tried
applying the S100.
Here's the same area
after a couple of shots of S100 Engine Brightener. Your eyes
aren't deceiving you -- the parts actually look brand new.
The few remaing spots are bugs; I'm sure if I would have cleaned
it first that this area would look even better than it does.
Here's a shot of a right front fork
before treatment with S100 Engine Brightener. These black
painted forks take quite a beating and are probably the most
"grayed out" parts on the bike.
Here's the same fork after the S100
treatment. It doesn't take away the chips and dings, but you
can see how it makes the paint look fresh. I'll report back
after some miles to see how well it stood up to the rigors of the
