By crackling you may actually mean crazing. Most common cause of that is an incompatible cleaner. Usually one that has ammonia in it. I use only Novus #1 cleaner which is totally compatible with plexiglass.

Sounds to me that there is a problem with the way it's mounted causing the windshield to flex/bend/tweek in a position it's not designed to. There should be no way a windshield should need to be replaced under normal riding every yr or 2.
I would loosen all the mounting brackets etc. and see if they tend to re-position themselves. Just a thought

My wife's bike has the same issue and that windshield has never had anything other than soapy water and bug $h!t on it.... and it's also blue. The ones that I hear this happening on 9 out of 10 times are blue... coincidence? :dontknow:

What type of windshield did you buy? Is it always in the same place which might indicate something is in a bind?? I have the clear Memphis Shades but no problem in 3 years.
