Take care of your helmet

If you wax your ride, wouldn't it make sense to protect and clean your lid?

What do you use? Car wax? Rain-X? Nothing?

I clean my lid everytime I come back from a ride..i just take some warm soap/water and wash it down..then take a soft cloth, clean the inside/outside of the shield with streak free glass cleaner..than occasionally anti-fog as well..but dont usually have a problem with fog though, fortunately!!

I do about the same as Matt does. However, for no fing reason what so ever, I have a serious problem with it fogging up on my. Now that really sucks when him and I are in triple digits and it fogs up on me. Besides Rain-X, what else works good to stop fogging???

Not if it is rinsed fully and dried good. It shouldn't leave any kind of dandruff. I think he may be using Head and Shoulders.

arsetard!! after you use a shampoo for awhile, it tends to leave a buildup, even if u rinse thoroughly..and since shampoo is rather thick i would think it would build up after awhile, but dont know, so im asking

hmmm maybe if he uses Neutrogena shampoo on it. That is to help remove buildup- (sorry I had to)

I try to polish my "helmet" every day and I use Jergens.. lol..

Seriously though I tried rain-x and it blurred my vision - NFG. I use Stoner now and it is crystal clear - works good. As far as the helmet portion I wipe the bugs off with Stoner and leave it at that.

Where did you pick up Stoner and how much is it a bottle.
