    Yup would have been OCD

    He recommended me some GTechniq stuff for trying to keep the plastic lights on the Mk1 TT from fogging .... that was a tiny little spray bottle though and i "think" different from what you are using

    I regularly use the original RainX and it works a treat. It also allows dead dried bugs to wash of with a little water on a paper towel. Don't use it on the inside of your visor. It just fogs up. RainX does make an anti-fog spray for the inside of a car windscreen. I haven't used it.

    I've got a new version of RainX I found in a petrol station in Tavistock that came in a big spray bottle and I'm not real impressed with it. It's a cleaner and water repellent combined. I find that if I clean my visor and then use the original RainX no sort of cleaning agent is needed for a week at a time.

    Think he favours, or at least likes, their products as he recommended Gtechniq degreaser, although I have to say I wasn't that impressed by it, preferring paraffin!

    Well, I received the stuff, and have used it on the screens of both my scoots, and I have to say that I'm very impressed. It works a treat. Made coming home on a dark rainy night, much more pleasant. Cheers for the info GP.

    Last year, I bought the 'plastic safe' version to put on the Burgy screen, and it is utter shite. Rain clearance is negligible, and Pledge or Mr Sheen does a better job.

    I'm going to try the original on my ageing visor, because as I said, I never had any problem with it in the past, and only stopped using it because of what the bike press said a long while back, about making plastic brittle.

    Personally, I think it was probably mostly bollox, and only affected SOME visors/screens.
    Agree with Didge bought a Kappa Screen for the Burg much bigger than the original so needs to be kept clean. Admittedly I have only used it once so far and it lasted a couple of days. Will give it another go but so far not impressed with the plastic version. Dux back is supposed to be good but not used it on plastics

    Stop using barn door windscreens on the bikes and the wind will do its job just nicely.

    Big screens and fairings can cause all sorts of interesting effects, such as the vacuum behind them giving the 'hand of God' effect pushing on your back, making you go faster. And there, M'Lud, ends the case for the defence . . .

    I've switched from SDOC100 at 15 quid a litre to that at about 5 quid a litre as I got 5 litres between me and my neighbour. Not quite as good as SDOC but much cheaper and as you dilute it, it goes much much further.

    My Son just bought some Rain X anti fog. Will do our vehicles with it at the weekend. Anyone used it before?

    Nah! it is negated by the enormous top box on the back . Truthfully there is a lot less wind battering from the Kappa screen compared to the OEM one quite impressed with it. Not had to actually raise it as I can just see over the top but I hate having a filthy windscreen hence the need for a solution. Just had the Crystal stuff arrive today so will report back after a bit of a trial
