Has anyone ever installed and used a PeerClear Windshield Wiper on their bike? Feedback would be interesting.
Thank you,
ErnieB

Don't know if this the ClearPeer, but I have been using this for the past month and it works great. No scratches, gives me enough to see, and has a lanyard to keep it when I'm going down the road.

Oh no! I can see someone getting hurt with one of those! A manual windshield wiper! Some one will not pay attention when they need to because of poorer visibility and being on wet roads you need more reaction time because of slick roads. Don't get me wrong I think being able to see is just as important. I think I good coat of Rain X once a month works fine. Heck i hardly use the car wipers with that stuff on there.

I have alwaysheard if you use Rain-X on a non coated windshield that it will cause it to haze up

There are TWO kinds! One for glass,one for plastics. I know from experience that the glass kind will MELT into a Slipstreamer windshield! Took forever to buff that out! jimsjinx

I installed the PeerClear on my buddy's 1500 a couple of years ago, as he had problems seeing through the screen in the wet.
I wired up both the constant and the intermittant switch so that he has flexibility of use.
He reckons it was one of the best additions to his bike.

Appears to be nothing more than a wiper off a boat,built boats for a living at one time and am sure they are no where near $299,may want to check with a marine supplier if looking to install one ..may save some bucks
