    There's handle at top of bottle to pressurize the bottle. Sort of hand pump. And last time the "rehri" wala was asking 300rs.. Price changes with capacity of bottle

    Well wax protects the paint from UV rays, Scratches and kind of acts like protective layer securing and protecting the shine and gloss of paint...

    The problem with coastal areas likely Karachi is the combination of salt and humidity. It keeps the salt active. Factor in the elevated temps (for every 10 deg F a chemical reaction doubles in effect) and you have a perfect environment for dissolving metal. If you spray with WD-40 you presumably displace the moisture so the salt should not be as active as it could be. You are going to get salt on everything because salt is all over the roads as well.

    When you get back from your trip, would give the scoot a very wet washing, perhaps even using a pressure washer to make sure you have all the salt dust out of the nooks and crannies. You should also put a couple coats of wax on the paint as well because salt can get in thru the pores in the paint and work on the metal underneath. Sealing those pores with wax will help prevent rusting bikes.
    excellent tip so far .. specially for khi bikers ... i always thought about messy diesel alternative ...

    Get these items .. 7cf, Cosmic wax, Brasso, Turtle chrome polish, and any good shampoo will do the job

    7cf = Rubber parts, tyre, meter etc

    Cosmic wax = for body parts such as tank, tappay etc

    Brasso & Turtle Chrome = for chrome parts.

    guys get any liquid wax from mothers or meguiars and split it between youselves, that way it will be cheap and affordable for everyone. cosmic is good but there should be something better.

    varnish spray will insulate the paint for further more protection but it would not remove the scratches on or might affect the genuine paint
