    method for what? FF coats stuff. Either way when riding in the ocean, you still need to wash/rinse down the bilge. Well, at least I do that for saltwater intrusion. I use dawn soap, spray the chit outta everything! I have Fluid film, I spray down stuff here and there, but my mechanic HATES that stuff. So i use it sparely now days. not sure if that even answers your question.

    fluid film is messy but works well to prevent corrosion for spraying on engine after washing it.

    Dish soap is fine for flushing.

    i have heard of people not fluid filming their engines, and just using dish soap after every ride to wash off the motor intercooler etc, and not getting rust. i wanted to know which method everyone thinks is the best.

    Fluid film after washing inside with simple green. Works all the time for me. I ride only in Hawaiian Salt water which is higher in salt than most places!

    Lanolin spray is mechanic friendly. Don't know if you have it everywhere. Get it off the sheeps back if all else fails.....Good for your hands to. Stops rust forming, just look at the sheep in the paddock. No rusty sheep there.
