    Armorall => Armorless ???

    Hi All,

    You'll be happy to know my 'new' scooter now has two new Pirellis. Happy Days. BUT!! I have a problem! The lovely gent I bought the scooter from has done a great job detailing the scooter, but has (clearly) Armoralled the seat! As a result I keep sliding forward whenever I stop, which is a bit disconcerting. Does anyone know how I can un-Amorall the seat??? I'm not enjoying the experience much. Sad

    Thanks!

    Lizzie.

    Hi Liz

    It's not exactly the answer to your question but seat covers work pretty well one of my bikes came with one and I like it alot.

    Old folk swore by metho for many applications. From treating wounds to wiping clean skirting board. I would be more inclined to use Sunlight soap and water first. Sunlight soap, which is still availabale at the supermarket in cakes, in my experience, continues to be a wonder product. I use it for many applications from spot cleaning my carpet to spotting the grease and oil on my cycling jackets. Better results than solvent base products.

    Leave it then in the sunlight to dry, but shade your instrument panel if you like, if you're fussy.

    Thanks everyone. Aspro Boy, I do have a box of Sunlight soap, so will start there, then, if needed go to the metho.

    Thank you all! Smile

      ..... and survive.

    When I travelled extensively with my camper trailer, I sometimes swam in situations where I ended up with 'pelican itch' to my scalp. Also, sand flies would find happy housing in my thick hair, scalp. Drives you crazy with itch. So, remembering what my late father taught me about old folk liberal use of metho, I would pour generously metho through my hair to saturate my scalp. I can report that it provided reasonable relief.

    Drinking the stuff could have taken crazy to a whole different level

    Ah yes the Armoralled seat, I did that once.
    On the way to Bathurst for the bike races it made the broken concrete sections through Wallerawang very, very interesting.

    Having had 2 knee replacements and a right hip replacement ,I find if I armourall the hump in front of the seat it helps me throw my leg over easier with my sneekers on .On the seat it is also easier to reposition your bum if you have to --I hope that my topbox will save me if ever I slip back that far

     

    riding for fun

    Despite the fact I never did High School Chemistry, I'll have a go at this one.

     

    Armorall is an oil based product, I'd go with Soap to remove it. Dishwashing liquid on a cloth, or the aforementioned cake of Laundry soap.

    4 years and 20,000 K's later, I'm still scootering, and you guys are stuck with me!
