I use Autoglym as found it to be good stuff. I tend to dilute it right down though to about 1:15. I'm coming to the end of it and have some Comma Xstream -65 now, at the weaker dilutions this 5L...

I'm sure this applies a lot more to bikes than cars. I bought a brand new CB1000R this week. I got it for £2K below list price alongside 0%. Straight away the 0% will make the used examples less...

Primer wise I think as you say maybe an etch primer, or even something like ZG90 Galvanising spray which can be used as a primer.
