I've been using Plexus for 2 years now on my Vstream windshield (Polycarbonate as is the stock shield on an RT) with absolutely stellar results. NO FOGGING whatsoever! highly recommended by the local BMW Motorrad dealer too!ksbaltz said:If it is the OEM windshield that came on your LT, you can not polish them out because of the coating that is applied to the polycarbonate. This coating is also the source of fogging on some of the screens.....especially if polishing cleaners such as Plexis is used.
Just be careful in the future to use a clean cloth to clean the windshield. I now just use warm water on a clean cloth towel. Let it sit on the ws until the bug goo is softened. Flood the WS with low pressure water to remove debris and then wipe dry with a clean cloth. Works great and is cheap.

I also called my State Farm agent this morning and they are sending an adjuster out to look at it. I told them I scratched it when I was cleaning it and the agent said that if the adjuster determined it needs replacing,they would replace it. I will keep updates and sorry for the cunfusion. Thanks Dale
I agree. Still check with your insurance first. I know here in IL we have a similar deal where if you have a chip of small crack in your auto windshield they will cover the cost of the repair. But you never quite sure because when (not if) your premium goes up the next year as it has steadily for me they blame it on the countless claims they had to pay on other members.petevandyke said:is your deductable less than a new windscreen, and is the "hit" you're gonna' take on your insurance for the next couple years worth filing a claim?
You can get a replacement windscreen for about $250 (Cee Baileys, not sure what others run), make sure you really WANT to file a claim.
