Default Rain Repellant for Visor/Windshield

Hello all,

What do you recommend to repel rain from your windshield/Visor?

I've seen different reviews on waxes and also on the Rain-X plastic. What do you all recommend?

Thanks in advance!

- Lexi 🙂

I've been using Plexus aerosol spray for longer than you may have been alive. Its a great cleaner and polish that leaves a nice, slick finish that rain flows off of. Very easy to use; spray and wipe.

I second Plexus as a cleaner.

As for your question I bought this.

Bike Brite (MM600) Moto Mask Blue Windscreen Rain Coating - 4 fl. oz.



I use it and it does work but not very long term. Nothing like RainX on real glass. I should probably put it on after each shower I go through but I don't.

Yellow bottle rain x got me through rain fine on second half of a 700 mile trip. Used on my helmet visor too.

I carry a can of Lemon Pledge with me at all times with some microfiber rags. Keeps the bugs from sticking and works well at keeping the shield clear of rain and scratch free. Been using it on bikes for years.

Plexus for on clear stuff.

But for cloths/shoes, I use a treatment that is made by Red Head, its in a aerosol can and it can treat your shoes or whatever other rain gear you are using. You spray it on, let it soak in for about half a day and then the water just beads off whatever its on. My Merrells now are truly waterproof after a good dose of that stuff.

Another vote for Plexus. I've tried RainX and ran into some problems with it driving at night with glare from oncoming headlights. That was on a windscreen, not a visor. I cannot remember using Plexus in the same circumstances though. I do hate riding in the rain and stay out of it whenever possible. Yes I'm a fair weather rider. I did my time in the rain day after day.

Please add model and year and where you live to your signature so we can help you better. What kind of windshield do you have. What ever you use more then likely will wash off in the first 20 miles or less in the rain

I use orange pledge. (Lemon attracts bees and such). You can find lots of posts that say using rain x for glass on plastic windshields is not a good thing. I think it can turn them hazy? I also "think" there is a rainx formulated for acrylic use now
