SC-1 spray is another one. I never used it on the X2 and still don’t. I do use it on the KRX and it makes clean up super easy. But when you first start and there’s none on the machine it takes a few cans at $11 a can. I was questioning the decision! Once there’s a base I can wash the machine and it takes less than a can to finish it off. Use a rag dedicated to spreading wiping it down and it goes a long way.

It attracts dust. It’s only slightly greasy after wiped down. But you can ride a few times hose it off it’s like new. A mud bath is different but a dusty trail ride is just a rinse.

Okay, so this will be odd....
How many spray the undercarriage, a arms, springs, boots, etc. with silicon spray? What brand do you buy? I had some that did a wide spray. The can I just bought (WD40 Silicon) was more of a jet. I'm looking a case, but I want the wider spray.
I’ve used several brands of silicone spray to coat the undercarriage and suspension on my machines. All seem to work pretty well. With that said, I have to reapply afterwards so I just use the cheaper product wherever I purchase it. I shop a lot at Rural King so I usually use their brand @ $2 a can.

I use it on everything. Buy it by the case on Amazon for around $9 a can. It does make clean up very easy.

I am finally getting around to trying the SC1. It is coming today. Let's see how this stuff works on the X2 first. They are both going to Hatfield in a Dec. 10-13... have to see how they clean off!

The machine will be covered in dust as it acts like a magnet. It defiantly helps in the clean-up for sure. I only use it on the undercarriage shocks, A-arms etcetera .
I use Hot Sause [ boat bling ] to clean-up the body.

You'll love it and the smell is unique. I like it. It may collect dust but a quick spray down removes the dust and dirt.

Bass boat saver! I've never seen anything like it. Spray on while damp and let set for a couple minutes and wipe off....i but it by the 5 gallon jug..... it's not an oil!

What makes SC1 so much better than WD-40? WD-40 is pretty fair priced in gallon cans with a squirt bottle.

Honestly just curious, as I've never used SC1.
I don't know. It comes out in a mist and just seems easier to work with. I don't rub it in or wipe it down. I just lightly spray everything and let it soak in. It also seems to last longer than WD-40 and not as oily. Try a can and see if you like before investing in more. I'm going to try the bass boat saver next.

SC-1 sounds a lot like the Amsoil Mudslinger.

It definitely makes the shine more than armor all, turtle products, meguiars, etc. And it smells good! lol. I will have to see how it makes the rinse off after some riding now. As far as application and results, two thumbs up! (SC1)

Just FYI for folks. WD-40 is a penetrating oil and makes all of your rubber seals swell. In a few years, things will not look good being shiney if you need to take it all apart. HAHA
Yes it's important to distinguish original formula WD-40 which is not friendly to rubber seals and the later "specialist" lubes and sprays which carry the WD-40 name as a brand. One of which is a silicone spray.
