Great windshield tip courtosy of Jeff (oldwrench1960)
Written by mac.hancock57 on 6/28/2012 at 06:40 pm

Does Rifle state that it is okay to use "original formula Rain X" on their
windshields??? Rain X will cause plastics to yellow,? should not be used on most
motorcycle windshields, face shields, etc.? I have found that Pledge does a
really good job of cleaning a windshield.? I usually try to mist the windshield
with water, then spray on Pledge, let it set for a short while and most bugs
wipe right off.? Would most likely work really well after the wet T-shirt.? I
have been told that a wet towel works really well also.
Ride Safe!!!!??? Mac H.

The 100 mile evening ride home through the woods with my new Rifle left the
usual assortment of bug splatter. Jeff gave me this tip that is so brilliant it
may be standard practice here but I didn't know it.

Take a clean 100% cotton T shirt, shake it to make sure there is no particles in
it, then get it soaking wet. Now, gently lay it over your windshield and smooth
it out. Go relax for about a half hour or so. (I just did about an hour or so.)
When you return the bugs simply dab off. No rubbing, no scratching!

When dry and clean a treatment of original formula Rain X makes the whole thing
work much better.? (I assume there was Rain X on the rifle.) It was so easy that
I am going to continue that practice. Jeff finishes with Novus 1. I will finish
with Plexus until my can runs out and then likely make the switch to Novus 1 as

What I do know was this was the easiest windshield cleaning I have ever done. I
also know that this "used" rifle appears as new so Jeff must have something

Hope you enjoy this tip as much as I have.
