SDoc 100 Black & Shine Review
|Thursday, 19 May 2011 15:05|
Motohaus Powersports recently sent us a sample of a new SDoc 100 motorcycle care product, simply entitled “Black & Shine”.
Black & Shine is designed to improve the appearance of black motorcycle parts on your pride and joy that the ravages of time and sunlight have bleached and to help event ongoing UV bleaching.
SDoc 100 claim it is suitable for application to all painted and unpainted metal, rubber and plastics (e.g. engine block, frame rims, fairings, fittings, carbon parts, top case etc.,).
The product is supplied as an aerosol. You just spray the product on to the bleached black area (assuming you’ve cleaned it first), leave it to dry and then buff any gloss surfaces with an absorbent cloth.
So we set about trying it on some black surfaces on a couple of bikes. Application is simplicity itself just spray it onto the surface requiring the treatment and “Hey Presto” Black & Shine” does its work.
We tried it on some faded black engine casings and the effect was almost instantaneous, transforming the dull black surface to its original high gloss finish.
Next we tried it on some faded black plastic, in fact the rear mud guard on a BMW R 1200 GS, which had become very dull over time. The same instantaneous result, a quick spray and the mudguard was looking as good as new.
We think this new product from SDoc 100 does exactly what it claims to do. It’s simple in use and very effective. We are sure it will find many delighted users who will be able to use it to restore the faded appearance of the black parts* of their motorcycles with the minimum of fuss and time.
*We should point out for safety reasons SDoc advise the product should not be applied to tyres, brake discs, seats, footrests, tank or operating controls such as handlebars, clutch or brake levers.
SDoc 100 Black and Shine costs a reasonable £12.44 including VAT and is available from Motohaus Powersports. You can call them on 01256 704909 or visit http://www.sdoc100.co.uk/products/sdoc100-black-shine
