plexus 24dollars????

I stopped at the local dealer and was shocked to see a can of plexus for 23.95, I didn't buy one and still have a little left, I think it's time to look for something else, question is, is there another product that gives the same results at a more affordable price, I would to see what others are using

I like this stuff. It is a little cheaper than Plexus. I have never used Plexus.

I like Plexus too but I passed on buying the large can the other day at a nearby Honda dealer. It was over $26.00 including tax. Absolutely ridiculous!

I use Novus.

You can find it for ten bucks in a pump 8 ounce spray at most Harley dealers. Cheaper (and larger, more economical sizes) at Amazon.com.
Some ACE Hardware stores carry it. Also, may find it at Home Depot.

It is a bit pricey, but one large can easily lasts a full year of riding and nothing works better, that I have found. When you factor in all the costs of touring per year, $25.00 really isn't too much to pay for a nice clean, rain repellent windsheild imho. I do wish it was cheaper though.

On my windshield I first use regular old hydrogen peroxide (3%) which is $0.88 for 32 oz. After I get the bugs off I use Lemon Pledge or Honda Spray Polish whichever I have at the time. Does a great job for me. BTW, I have used Plexus and Novus in the past and I really can't tell that those are better products than Pledge or Honda Spray Polish. JMO

I use REJEX

Rejex, bought at Amazon for about 16. for a 16 oz bottle. Great on windshield and a super wax for paint, chrome, etc. Does not cake white crap on rubber or trim. I keep a bottle in the bike all the time for keeping face shield clean and windshield polished up.

I certainly use the hydrogen peroxide and it works very well.

Have not tried the Pledge. Lemon or otherwise.

No matter where you go, there you are.
