Just wondering if anyone knows of a good cleaning product that does a
good job removing bug guts from the painted surfaces.
Thanks

I just bought this bug remover from turtle wax....It comes in a throw away towelete. It wiped off the bugs off my chrome and fairing with ease...and then i simply go over the bike with some quick detail spray.

I bought the big 16 oz can of Turtle Wax bug and tar remover, and use an old sock (2 small boys = many old holey socks...). Works great and way cheaper than the moist towelette version. I do keep a few of the towelette ones in my saddlebags for cleanups on the road.

Hey Masher, I'm using the S-100 total cycle cleaner "stuff". You spray it all over the bike and then give it a good washing. It even disolves the stuff between the fins on the jugs. It does a good job on bugs as well as grease.

If you buy it, get the refill container and put your own sprayer on it. The small spray bottle they sell is too expensive.

On my 69 cuda, I use W-D40, works great, if it is good for the car, then it can't hurt the Harley:)

What about using it on the windshield?
I use it everywhere, including the windshield.

FYI . . . I'm planning to go with Hippo's suggestion of using diluted (50%) Simple Green. I'm sure that it will do just as well and it is a heck of lot cheaper.

What ever cleaner you decide to go with, you need to avoid directly spraying onto any bearing seals. Overspray is okay, but not direct.
