taking bugs off windshield of a goldwing

Postby bassplayer2009 » Sat Jun 01, 2013 10:39 am



I use Dow foaming bubbles bathroom cleaner to remove bugs from my windshield on my Goldwing. I have been doing it for years almost melts the bugs off. It does leave a slight residue or film just let it dry and wipe it clean . it works for me anyone else use this product ???

This is just me but would stick with something tried and true for the type of material it is. I found using a Pledge type of cleaner with no odor works well and will work like Rain-X. I believe in it too but not for the bike. Ihave also used regular Turtle wax if its not too HEAVY with debris. I about ruined a new screen on my VTX using the wrong thing. Good luck though.

I use a spray protectorant. It doesn't matter which one, they all work as well. It's safe for the windshield and the bugs don't stick like using nothing. Simply spray on and wipe off with a soft handtowel. It's easy to carry both,as they take up minimum room in the bags or trunk.

Just installed a new Cee Bailey shield on my wing. Using Novus plastic polish and it is fantastic. If there is a heavy dose I use a wet terry cloth first and then follow up with the Novus. Clean and easy for sure.

Hydrogen peroxide from the drug store in a spray bottle. Mist it. Wait about five minutes for the bug guts to foam up and soften, then wipe them off. Won't hurt paint or shield. I then pre-treat with Original Bike Spirits (same as the old Honda spray cleaner). Only use CLEAN micro-fiber cloths on the shield.

20% hydrogen peroxide, 80% water. No residue, no damage.

I just use a towel soaked in warm water. Put it over the windshield, let it sit for a minute, then gently wipe the liquefied bugs off.
