What do you find helpful in cleaning your scooters ?
do you wash them or use a spray cleaner?

Thank you Chuckiescoot

Did you see the instructions for cleaning in the owner's manual? They want you to wrap the exhaust in plastic, and wax it every time you wash it.

What do you use to clean the windscreen?

I wash it with car wash detergent, dry it off, give it one coat with carnuba wax, then spray all the plastic (windshield included) with Lemon Pledge :lol: !

Works great! :wink:

God Bless.

I give her a sponge bath when she begins to get dirty. I carry a roll of paper towells and a bottle of Windex. I do plan to give her a good going over this summer ! Soap and water.

Fiber glass doesn't require that much wax does it ?

i use regular car wash also, then use a chamois cloth to dry it off.
then once it's dry i use a product called "Plexus" it's an awesome plastic polish and protectant, it gives all the plastic great shine, and it's really smoothe to touch. also makes it harder for dirt and other road debris to stick in the future.

then i use windex on the screen (to clean it) then i use rainex (sp?) on the screen for water repellancy (sp?) it works great. the water just beads and rolls straight off the screen.

then i use armourall on all the black plactic, except the seat and control surfaces (foot rests etc) as it could get very dangerous if you used it on the seat ! you would likely slide straight off !

i use a good quality alloy wheel cleaner from eagle one on the wheels.
stay away from any type of tyre black or tyre shine type products, as these usually make the tyres very slippery (not a good thing when you've only got two of them !)

i follow this routine about once every two weeks or so.

I've read on other forums that over time Rain-X will turn your windshield cloudy and yellow. Apparently the label states that it is not intended for plastics.

Lemon Pledge??? OK, how did you figure out to use Lemon Pledge and not Endust, for example?

i have been using it on everything (including helmet visors) for years, with no bad results (so far)

the label states that if you intend to use it on plastics, you should spot test it first. this makes sure that there is no damage.

A neighbor of mine turned me on to using lemon pledge. He uses it on his old Goldwing and the sucker looks terrefic still. It keeps the plastics shiny, keeps a lot of dust off, keeps the windshield super clean and dust free. Any smudges anywhere are much easier to wipe and, I believe, the extra coating the Pledge gives you helps to protect from minor scratches. It works for me!!! :wink:

Used to use Lemon pledge on my racing bicycle. Lemon Pledge gets road tar off of the bicycle paint without scratching or marring the paint.

Now I use RUB bike wash on my scoot. I finish it off with 3M automotive detailing products to wax and protect it.

Might get some fruit flies following you around! I use a spray cleaner similar to Honda Clean. It is a wax/cleaner/protectant all in one. Probably the same stuff as in Pledge as it does smell similar, without the lemony scent. It does a great job especially on the windshield. I can simply spray a spot on bug splats, wait a couple of minutes and it just wipes off. Leaves the plasitcs nice and shiny.

I've never washed mine.

I guess when I do, I'll use soap and water and a sponge.

The Mister Clean carwash system is the bomb! I have used it ever since I bought my Maj, and it works great. Cleans deeper than I would like sometimes :wink: (It leaves your hands looking like the inside of an exhaust pipe).

I used to use this stuff but I noticed that at every stoplight I would have yellowjackets all over my bike. I'm highly allergic so I switched to Honda Spray or Plexus for the windshield
