    Another vote for Plexus. It's $40 a can in NZ and I thought it couldn't be worth that. But I started using it 3 years ago, and my 4-year old Shoei visors still look like new.

    It also does a great job on windshields and rear view mirrors.

      I use Pledge (actually, the generic equivalent) and have no issues with scratching or hurting any surface whether it be my visor, bike plastics or whatever.



      $2.47 a can at Wally World


      But if you want to spend $40 on Plexus that's your call
      I have neither the time,or the inclination, to explain myself to a man, who rises and sleep under the blanket of the very freedom that I provide, and then questions the manner, in which I provide it. I'd rather you just say 'thank you' and go on your way.

        Furniture polish gets it done just fine. I don't use a lot of Plexus on my visors so I can't
        give a comparison of the 2. The big can I have is probably 2 years old or better. I do know
        that it last longer than furniture polish, and it doesn't cost me much being we use it around the shop
        at work on our touchscreens, displays and other clear plastic stuff. I use ceramic stuff on my fairing
        and plastics on the Zed. Works pretty badass. Bugs and road crap just hoses off, and wipe with wet
        micro fiber rag. Ole girl still shines like a new dime.

          I use Pledge on the bike, it's great stuff but doesn't last long. But Plexus is better on visors. You don't need much and it lasts for months. I doubt I'll ever need another can!

            I use baby wipes on for the visor when I'm riding. Get the small, flat package of them. Easily packs into a tank or tail bag.

                  That's the secondary benefit of them in the tank bag. They are useful if you have to take a "nature walk".

                    I wonder if a Bidet could be installed. Maybe some kind of piping system being warmed by the radiator.

Doing an annual on a plane involves lubricants and anti corrosive products that can cost up to $200 bucks for a large spray can. I will be checking out this Plexus though. How do you like your ARAI helmet?/ I really think I want to try and get one but aren't sure of what model or where is the best place to buy them. The dealers around here have had the same helmets sitting around for years, and they want a lot for them. My cheap KBC Visor has held up incredible, to be honest. I redid the liner myself. I found that Jo-Ann Fabrics has the same foam backed material that's in the helmet, and I used the old ones for patterns.
                      The Service Pavillion is by far the best bunch to buy an Arai from and they have been able to source and sell parts to me for Arai's that have been long discontinued. Check out their yard sale helmets for new old stock at reasonable prices.
