  • Cleaning & protecting a windshield

    I have a 2013 Goldwing and would like to find out what others use to clean their windshield and if you put anything on it like waxing it. So far what I use is a cloth. & hot water to clean.

    I use wax on the shields time to time. A good product is the spray turtle wax as it does not leave white residue on the rubber trim parts. The only problem is the turtle does get stuck in the little nozzle time to time and that is somewhat aggravating.

    Many products out there, no need to buy anything special, modern waxes will not harm and do help protect for awhile. Eventually after a few years all shields do get scratched up, just what it is.

    If you use a paste wax always read the can, pick one that does not leave white hard to remove residue, some work well , some are a pain.

        I use Peroxide to get the bugs off & Lemon Pledge to clean after bugs are gone.

          Just added a tinted shield from F4 Customs and really like it. While I try and not use steel wool too often, I am really pleased with how well it cleans up. Any problems with using similar items to clean and protect it? Thanks for the feed back.

                      Wheels, Don told me NOT to use any kind of polish like rain x. Just water, if you continue to use steel wool use the good stuff.

                        I use mild soapy water, rinse with clean water, then dry with a soft cloth. I have had windshields with 50,000 miles on them that look brand new. I use RainZip from National Cycle on mine to shed rain. Stuff is amazing.

                          That is all I've ever used to clean mine. They always look like new. Don't need no stinkin' new-tangled cleaners to keep a windshield nice. I did end up with a bottle of bugs b gone I've been playing with. Shows promise and I'm gonna try that RainZip.

                              Somewhere I read about a spray on solution used by pilots for airplanes, windscreens and all painted surfaces, but I already forgot the name. Any pilots on here know what its called?

                              Of course, good old lemon pledge works.

                              When I finish my can of Plexus, it will be my last due to the cost.

                                Whatever I'm using to wash the bike with is what cleans the windshield. Usually McGuiers
