I have been using pledge and Mr sheen on my windscreen for the past few years and it is excellent ,It was a guy in france who had a 1500 since 1990 and he used pledge all the time on his screen and after all this time there is not as much as a blemish on it and that is what convinced me to use it ,,,I also polished the bike with it ,but found the dust seems to settle on it very easily ..So I stick with turtle wax for the bike ...Ciaran

The stuff works okay, if you have a big bug build up it's better to soak them a bit with water. As I said on another thread, I've used the stuff on aircraft and boat windshields for years with no harm to the plastic. It will shine up the bike too, but won't last as long as a good carnuba based wax.

Thanks lads Since i told him that it was ok for the complete he hasn't stopped polising, he has even polished the rims with it. I told him our "Senior Guru"said it can be used on aircraft, so he says he will get one of his men to try it on his aircraft during the week. Hey wexman

He wants to know, can turtle wax be bought in the aerosol can.

hi all,ive always used any furniture polish that was at hand at the time ive been cleaning my bikes,plastics,chrome,painted surfaces its always worked for me? plus most if not all polishes are wax based as far as i can tell so in fact this should protect the surfaces cleaned with it ??? as for the wind sheild ive always used furniture polish,also theres no need for the more expensive brands ive used the cheapest makes and still got the same results,the cheapest one ive used was only 45 pence english money...bri,uk.

LEAVE WELL ALONE!!!

I've seen Turtlewax in aerosol but I don't think the formulation is the same.

Well you learn something every day. I would not had thought about the Lemon Pledge as a polish for the bike. A lot cheaper than some of the stuff out there.
