I would like to know if anyone knows how to get my windshield clear again, its not that bad but you can see many lines across it.

And I want to install an electric windshield wiper system on my pc800 like they have in the goldwind because when it rains I can't see anything at all.

Thanks!

Cee Bailey makes aircraft windshield cleaner and polish which is supposed to remove fine scratches from plexiglass. I am sure there are other products for that purpose as well.

For a windshield wiper I would look at marine sources. West Marine has a wiper kit that probably could be adapted to a motorcycle. http://www.westmarine.com/buy/afi--afi- ... cordNum=38

Have you tried using Rain-X? If you do make SURE to use the version for plastic. https://www.rainx.com/product/plastic-w ... FU-7mrav4Y

before you try to rig up a wiper try NOVUS plastic polish. sometimes referred to as Novus #1. It will make your plastic windshield be like glass with rainx on it. As railbender mentioned above DO NOT use regular rainx it is designed for glass and ruins plastic. I learned that the hard way.

Hello
The polish works pretty good, but the best solution is a new windshield. The best buy I found was a place called SKIDMARKS located in the UK. They now have a dealer in Florida. I bought 2 windshields for the same price as one US made windshield. I bought one standard and one High. I like the standard. I'm 5'11" and It's perfect. If you buy 2 or more at a time the shipping charges per unit are lower.
