Okay, so last night I had a CFI (Certified F*****G Idiot) moment. First the warning- DO NOT USE GOOF OFF ON ANYTHING YOU LIKE!!! I have used this product on about everything I like with no issues whatsoever, until last night.
After flipping my windshield over on the '09, I noticed that my Kawasaki sticker was upside down, and backwards, of course. I peeled the sticker off, and there was of course, the leftover 'goo' that stickers leave behind. I went for my trusty can of Goof Off to remove the remnants. On the first spay, I should have known something wasn't right, as the solution trickled down and away from the goo- typically, Goof Off will sit and soak into the leftovers. I sprayed again, grabbed a micro fiber cloth and began wiping away.
Immediately I noticed that the wiping felt a bit rough compared to prior applications, then I noticed how the solution had all but melted the finish on my windshield!
I couldn't believe what lie before my eyes. My windshield was completely ruined, with no sign of clearing up. The only plus side to this matter is that I have finally made up my mind to replace the OEM windshield wit a Givi. I hope the wind deflection of the Givi is half as good as others have posted here.
Lesson well learned- if in doubt, scrub with soap and water.
