What’s the difference between FS 365 Complete Bike Protector and other corrosion protector products?

At Scottoiler we have a proud tradition of looking at problems with a new approach and developing different/new solutions to common issues. With our FS 365 Complete Bike Protector the situation is similar. FS 365 Complete Bike Protector is a different approach to the problem of keeping your motorcycle pristine, all year around. FS 365 works in a different way than your traditional bike and corrosion protectors: It has to be applied in a different way and it’s therefore difficult to compare FS 365 to other corrosion protector products.

FS 365 Complete Bike Protector is a stable micro-emulsion of oil and water. Instead of creating a barrier to the environment it works with the chemical process of corrosion to balance out the acidic elements and thereby protect your bike from rust. It uses the water element as a carrier which makes application super easy and allows FS 365 to access all the hard-to-reach places. After letting the bike dry the water content evaporates leaving a film of protection on all surfaces. And yes, that means that FS 365 is water-soluble and will wash off.

This is where the mind-set change is needed. FS 365 is not meant for long-term storage but rather for the biker that uses the bike often, potentially daily. It should be applied after every run and every time you wash the bike – it can be sprayed onto a wet bike and even a dirty bike. It can be sprayed onto all materials and will protect all materials from dirt and grime – you should obviously not spray it on brake pads and discs however if you do it can be rinsed or wiped off and wont contaminate your brake pads. It’s designed as an easy solution to protecting your bike and because it’s water-soluble it makes cleaning the bike easier – dirt and grime sticks on top of the FS 365 protection layer and water will take it all off, without the need for aggressive cleaners and degreasers.

FS 365 Complete Bike Protector

FS 365 was designed by our inventor Fraser Scott as a product for those that use the bike all-year-around such as courier riders, commuters or himself. The idea is that after a long day riding you don’t have the time or energy to clean the bike. Come home, spray FS 365 onto the bike, go in, have your tea.

Maybe you can now see how it’s hard to compare FS 365 to other corrosion inhibitor products. Most other products focus on a one-time application that should last as long as possible. These products use tacky additives to create a barrier to the environment – a good solution but you can never be sure how long the protection will last.

FS 365 works on the basis of frequent applications and follows the principle of Scottoiler chain oiler systems: Doing something regularly is better than intermittent application. It can be easily applied in a few minutes and protects your bike – before, after and during the ride.

If you really like your current corrosion protector the good news is you can use both methods at the same time: Use a barrier protector for long term storage and FS 365 for when you are out and about. Something that bikers often forget is that road salt will stay on the roads until late in the summer and with the rising temperatures corrosion is accelerated. So bike protection should always be a year-round concern!
