Plexus

I have been using Plexus and it works well for me.

A local Goldwing shop is selling Lucas Oil Slick Mist.

Are any of you using this product and what do you think???

If it works... why fix it?

I use Plexus and I am pleased with it!

Lucas does not mention using Lucas Oil Slick Mist on Poly and Plexi windshields.

cloudy plexiglass

I just returned from Paonia and find the small sight glass which identifies which mode my comms is in has become cloudy from moisture. I believe on the K1200LTE that the sightglass is really plastic/plexiglass. I have used Honda spray polish and the cloudiness is less but not gone. Any ideas as to a final solution?

Denatured alcohol.
Also try vodka, it works well on a Q-tip. Bonus: you get to drink the rest of it!

Pledge

I've been using pledge for years on all my bikes, it works as well as anything else not only that use it on your windshield and the rain rolls right off . I think it's about a buck a can at wallmart sure beat's 12 bucks. Try some your Wife's got some under the sink. And it makes your bike smell lemony fresh. Dave

I use Pledge for the windscreen and my helmet - works great.

I did not realize that only women purchased pledge and uses it in their homes. Archaic thinking my friend.

Little known fact: also makes an excellent deodorant. Really controlls wetness and odor!

Gilles, what brand would you recommend? Now, I'm a little partial to Belvedere. Grey Goose for you? I think it's important to maximise your drinking, er, cleaning pleasure with the best Vodka.

Plexus and Windshield Delamination

When my windshield delaminated, the dealer claimed it was due to the Plexus I used to clean it. True or not? I don't know for certain. In any case, they paid for the new windshield since they were the ones selling the Plexus. Will this be an issue for you in the long run? I can't say. I have only used water on my windshield for the last couple years now and no problems whatsoever.

I use Plexus on my windshield, but then again it is a Cee Bailey and not the factory shield, different material.

Red face

I used Plexus on my BMW windshield and it fogged soon after. I'll never use that stuff again. De-natured alcohol from time to time unfogs it.
Check other postings as there are many that say "no" to Plexus.
