@Fred Do you know what the difference is between Rejex 61001 and Rejex 61002 other than the packaging and the part number?

Almost the same price.... might be the same product. What does your bottle look like?

McGuire's Ultimate Quick Wax spray, it's not a wax, it's a polymer sealant. It works on the matte paint, as well as rubber and plastic parts. I use it on the windshield and nothing sticks to it. I get it at Wal-Mart, I use it for the whole bike.

I'm not Fred, but I found this on Amazon:
Question: What is the difference in rejex 61001 and 61002?
Answer: I think it is the same product, just different size bottles. I bought the 001 and a friend used the 002 and it looks like the same stuff to me. GREAT on all painted surfaces and Windshields too!

Just be sure to follow the directions with Rejex. You have to apply it, let it dry, remove it, and then wait 24 hours. The polymer needs time to properly cross link to the windshield. You'll find it takes some work to remove it once it is dry, and this is always a great indication of a long lasting polymer. Treatments that wipe off easily also don't last long.

Everybody must have went to amazon cause I ordered mine just now and only 2 left in stock. Going to try it on the front of the superduty also cause thats a lot of bug area on the front of that thing.

Bug Slide is the best I've found but I might just have to order a bottle of Rejex.

I've tried this stuff and I find it to leave an oily film that attracts dust and dirt.

My windshield has 'micro-crazing' - the spider web looking tiny cracks that make it hard to see at night or when riding toward a sunset. Does any of this stuff help? Or do I just need a new shield?
TIA
