    Guys,

    I have the OEM windshield on my bike. The plastic on it is very soft and is now a bit crazed. Has anybody had success polishing the scratches out? I was wondering if you could use the same techniques similar to refurbishing a car headlight.

    Try Novus #2, it has a very fine abrasive but is made for this job. Elbow grease required, but it works for paint scratches and scuffs too.

    yep polished out a few now.. I use meguiars plasx-r & a polishing machine. It works remarkably well. The screens are a lot softer than headlights so you dont need the same amount of work..
