What's the best product to use to free up occasional sticking fairing panel buttons?

Don't use WD-40, it'll free them up, but the residual lube attracts dirt/dust and they'll stick worse.

Plastic-safe CRC electrical cleaner (no lube) is recommended. Most auto parts stores sell it.
They say 98% of all Hardleys ever made are still on the road..... The other 2% made it home. :lol:
(I stole this from somebody on another GW site...) :roll:

Thanks for the tip Denver Winger. Bought some today, removed two screws holding the two halves of cruise control housing, separated them just enough to get the plastic spray tip extension inside housing and sprayed the back side of cruise control button with CRC quick dry electrical cleaner. I didn't put any lube spray. It's not sticking anymore. PTL
