Just wondering what everyone is using to clean these plastic pieces and caps with ? I've been using just ordinary basic stuff but am noticing that the finish could look better if there is a better product for plastic - lol.

i usually just use windex with a soft cloth on both of my bikes. streak free. great shine. if you let it sit for a minute before wiping, it'll soften up any bugs. of course, if the bikes are really grimy i'll break out the good ol soap and water.

For just wiping down the bike before or after a ride, Honda spray polish is awesome! You can use is on painted parts and chrome parts. It's all I use along with a micro-fiber rag to wipe it down.

I actually tried the windex idea last nite - worked very well and shined/no streaks. The Honda shine you other guys mentioned seems kool too. I will definatley try some of that as well. Take care n safe ridin'!

For my sport bike that was nothing but plastic I used plexus. For me it worked good on dirt and grease. I have alway been able to find it at my local dealer but here is a link to there website.

Introducing Plexus Plastic Cleaner

The only problem with the website is you can only order it in bulk.

I am sure most have used dish soap in there time, but if I can make a suggestion and say not to use the dishwashing soap. There are chemicals in the dish soap that are not good for the clear coat and wax on your bike/car etc... These chemicals can actually dull the paint and dry out rubber such as the tires and or trim on your vehicle. Its not much more $ to pick up some soap at an auto parts store or even wally world for that matter that is made specifically for automotive paint. But again this is just my suggestion.

+1

I wouldn't use Windex either due to the ammonia that's in it. At least that's what I've heard.
