Products you'd never buy again.

Just oiled up some air filters with 'spray on oil' (Motul in this case). What a crap product. I have absolutely no idea if my airfilters are oiled enough.The oil comes our feezing cold and actually freezes the surface of the filter!. Plus i used most of a can to do 2 filters. So thats almost $10 bucks a filter. Hahaha. Never again.

While I am having a whinge... cheap jerry cans that have the spout on the outside are useless. Spout is designed to let air in while also letting fuel out. Yeah, right. Also the spot gets dusty on the inside if you leave it in the ute etc so next time you fill up you have a fuel additive - dirt. Yay. Plus the seals are shit and they leak everywhere. Never again.

Metzler '6 days' tyres are also crap.

Rant over - oiling air filters pisses me off at the best of times, let alone with spray on oil!

I use Motorex spray-on airfilter oil & I reckon it works well. I've oiled 5 filters so far and would have enough oil in the can for another 3 at least. It depends how liberal you are with the oil, I guess

B.O.T. - Pirelli MX-Extra X rear tyre - absolute rubbish. Yeah, they wear well, but traction is sheizahousen.

Motul Transoil - I'm not good enough to tell if it's better or worse than any other gearbox oil - so, I won't buy it again as it's more expensive than what I use.

KTM o.e.m. sticker kits - bought 2, neither stuck, now use motox-art stickers - 1/4 of the price & wear well.

I would never use those sprays, heavy motor oil 40/70, or chainsaw bar oil only.

Mechanics love spray on oil, dusting motors becomes a real issue. Never use it.

I've always used spray on oil and I've had no problems.

I wouldn't buy cheap tyres ever again (for my bike anyway). I did that a few times in the early days a few years back.....FAIL.

I agree the Metzelers are shit, particularly the rear.

F bushing for PDS. Lasted maybe 20 hours. Cheap all balls did 150+ hours before I sold the bike.
