WD40

no joke, I put a light spray on a cloth and just swiped it over my virsor, haven't cleaned it for 2 weeks, it's really good in the rain as the water just goes off, best after the rain is stopped you don't even get those water droplet marks....I dunno, just thought to share that with you all...and have ridden in the sun for extended periods, nothing happens....

It sounds wacky but it might just be true. Keep us up to date with your day to day on this.....:thumbup

Anyone tried rain-away/rain-x or any of the like on their visor? Thinking about it but don't want to screw the visor.

not really, don't apply directly, on cloth first, and that too for only 1 minute....

I just use Plexus, works great on the whole bike and works good on the visor.

i got lens cleaner from sunglass hut. its "formulated" for special coating lenses. when i ran out of that, i switched to windex. its a pretty special formula too.

Hot water and dish soap for any visor.
Let it soak, wipe clean (gently on the irdiums) with a cloth
and dry with a towel and give it a coating of Pledge after
that with another dry cloth.

This stuff is awesome....works great on your windscreen as well. Call me anal but I won't use anything other than a chamois(sp?)..
..I believe it's lamb hide or something like that....works great.

Yeah, I use rain-x all the time on my Shoei visor and it works great. Rain beads off like a dream and it doesn't damage or cloud the visor at all so no worries.

I found that using McGuires #50 RV cleaner works nicely for cleaning the bike, helmet and visor off. I also use it after I wash and towel dry the bike. #50 will clean up even the little scuff marks.

I've tried Rain-X on my visor and it was awesome. Thanx for reminding me to put some more on. If your caught riding in the rain all you have to do is turn your head and the wind clears the water right off your visor!

I have an iridium visor and I've already scratched it up with simple washing. I don't recommend using plexus because you have to buff it off. The added pressure scratched mine ever so finely. I couldn't believe it when it scratched after that. There's some 20/20 that is good for tinted visors. Along the lines of windex.

With iridium you have to be so dam careful of what fabric to use and how much pressure to give it. Just because of the cleaning, I now prefer the tinted visors.

I'm gonna try the WD40. Human, another question for ya. Does it feel oily to the touch?

Careful with the Pledge and the WD40, both will leave a film after extended use, I used to use them on my old windscreen and after a while it started to have a muggy appearance to it. WD40 is essentially an acid, so after a while it will eat away at things. Plastics and rubber are notorious for being great snacks for that stuff.

Okangaan

Living in the Okangan might be nice. A couple of weeks ago i was up there, (May long) Went from Shuswap to vernon, I had to stop there to clean my visor as I could hardly see out of it. There were so many bug hits, the top shoulders of my jacket were covered as well.

I just use the cleaner from the Sunglass Hut as well and I find that it works amazingly.

Just my .02 Thanks
