I don't know about after market windshields but do not use it on OEM shields, it will eat up the coating on it. When I wax my bike I also apply a coat of wax to the windshield, it helps the water bead up and run off.

Rain-X is intended for use on glass only, and should not be used on acrylic or polycarbonate motorcycle windshields.

Are you using the correct one? Seems to work well for me...

Do NOT, I repeat, do NOT use regular Rain-X on a plastic shield (I'm not referring to the plastic cleaner). I've had very good luck with this stuff. Expensive, but a can lasts a long time.http://www.amazon.com/s/?ie=UTF8&keywor ... ingdocs-20

Eliminate the need for chemicals and waxes, get an F4 windshield. Their website: https://www.f4customs.com/

I have no interest in the company, but have used one of their shields for 5-6 years with no problems. Customer service has been excellent.

Is the "rain shedding" of the F4 Custom good?

I have looked in vain for Rain -x plastic. They don't seem to export it to Europe.
