Try lemon pledge works good, and the rain will slide right off. Hal

+1 on the lemon pledge, but only rub up and down OR side to side. never in circles, it causes micro scratches over time that are very hard to see through at night when there are headlights shining at you. Kind of like a halo effect. It doesnt matter if you choose up and down or side to side, just be consistant. I use microfiber clothes. The pledge works well on the rest of the bike too. Cleans and shines

There is a plastic polish that works wonders, its a two or three step process. The name escapes me now, but if I can remember it, I'll be back. ;)

Novus 2 plastic polish works best for me. It comes in 1 and 3 as well but I've never found a need for the other two. I tried rain X and didn't like it. Novus can be purchased online at Denis Kirk. You might also check with a local winshield service, that's where I get mine.
