Cleaning vented windshield?

Post by Straydogg » Sat Mar 10, 2018 10:16 pm



I changed to a vented windshield and noticed something. How am I going to clean between the dash and the vent? Not enough room for my hand to get in there..... Anybody?

No way that I know of. That is one reason I do not have vented windshields on my bikes.

I use a large Micro fiber towel and just kind of stuff it in there and work it back and forth.

Sounds like the best way. Not gonna be real clean I guess but I'm gonna like the vent on the hot days. :)

The vented windshield is tough to clean, but that vent makes all the difference in the world when it's hot.

for guys with a 1500 or 1800 just raise the windshield, for guys with non adjustable windshields you could remove the vent to clean the dash

a dampened cloth draped over the end of a spatula or a paint stir stick will get in there fine

I gave up on that a long time ago, it is, what it is.
