Rain-X for Motorcycle windshields now available

I just ran across this today and thought I would share. I have been using the original on my glass windshields on vehicles for years and now finally they came up with this product.

I have been using Rain-X on my motorcycle windshields since the 1970's...

only put on the forward side.. never on the rearward side..

same with Face Shields.... just as long..

I so dislike Marketing....

never an issue with the windshield. same OLD Rain-X.

The Rain-X bottle (original type) itself warns you not to use it on plastics.

On some types of plastics it was OK but on others it would/could cause crazing and yellowing which I did experience on one of my windshields a long time ago and do not remember what brand it was. I think it was a Memphis Shades.

Years ago I had contacted both Memphis Shades & National Cycle and they both said, "No Rain-X"

Some info on that
https://www.rainx.com/faq/rainx-orig...dshields-atvs/

There also have been quite a few posts on VTXOA about the warning of using Rain-X.

Glad it is working for you Chuck.

Liquid Glass is much better, IMHO, than Rainx. Still comes in a metal can

Spike,

It no longer comes in a metal can or any container. I swear by it too and have only a half a can left.

The rumor why it or any of the Liquid Glass products are not available is the owner had a serious mental breakdown and the company went out of business.

I hope you have a stash of it or a source. If you know of a source please PM me.

Memphis Shades tinted shields are very sensitive to cleaners......The only thing they recommend is All Clear or Dishliquid & water...Anything else will void warranty.
