What year LT?
Pre 2005 bikes had a glass lens and plastic reflectors, no way to separate them. Some damaged theirs by running higher wattage bulbs, this added heat cooks plasticizers out of the plastic parts which fogs the lens and reflector.
One person cleaned his fairly effectively by putting soapy water in it with some small styrofoam beads and sloshed it around hard for quite a while. The soapy water cleaned, the styrofoam added scrubbing action. Then rinsed it out well, and dried it out. Not like new, but much better.
