Xzilon paint protection plan

Anyone heard of Xzilon? Xzilon® Molecular Adhesion

It's some type of protectant coating and they supposedly offer a warranty and protection plan on multiple paint surfaces (denim and gloss)...

Since I'm getting a Scorched Orange and Denim Black RGS, I'm wondering if this might be worth the protection and warranty... I just know nothing about it. Never heard of it before the dealer mentioned it today.

I have some F11 Top Coat that I already bought and plan on using every 3 to 6 months...

The dealer I use offers it. They used to put it on all the touring bikes but you only got the warranty if you purchased the plan. I don't know if they still apply it to all their bikes. I never purchased the warranty or even read up on the coverage. I also did not take notice to any of the products qualities.

Its a $4 bottle of polymer that they shine the paint with. Then if you fall for it, they sell you an insurance policy on the paint.

Yes and no. Its prolly not bad as paint sealant goes. But not worth paying for an insurance policy to get it. And its a stretch to call that list of exceptions a policy.

Save your money. Then if you feel the need, buy a bottle of sealant at the auto parts house and do it yourself.

Calling @phillyfan1

He seems to know this kind of thing. From what I've heard elsewhere, that F11 stuff isn't all they make it out to be either. Though others say it is. Like a lot of products, if it works for you, great! If not, try another.

Yeah. I have 1 bottle of F11. I'll try it this spring and summer to see if it's decent.

I think i'm just being sensitive because i'm getting a new scorched orange bike. But i know nothing will fully protect it, especially with as many miles as i want to put on it.

Buy em to ride or buy em to look at: never worried about my paint, put too many miles on it for that; BUT I did get a lot of grief about how filthy my bike was! I just smiled and went my merry way. But that's just me.

Junk!
If you want to protect the paint on your bike, plenty of quality products out there that are proven to do the job. Stay away from anything that is sold at the dealer.
F11 might be a half a step above that stuff. Sell the F11 on craigslist or give it to someone. You purchased a brand new gorgeous bike, protect it with a quality sealant or coating.
If you are going to do it yourself, make sure you polish the paint first. I know its brand new, it still needs to be polished.
