Does anyone know of a sure fire way to clean all the bugs and other crap off a screen? As I have a new screen for the Tiger I thought I may as well clean up the old one and sell it on Ebay. Trouble is it has lain in the shed for months and I can not seem to get it really clean. I have washed it with hot soapy water, rubbed it with neat screenwash all to no avail. :(

All sensible suggestions welcome, and, knowing this forum, non sensible as well.;)

Soak it in Vinegar, overnight to loosen the dried on muck.

If you know someone with a high speed polishing mop, used a dab of Farecla G3 cutting compound and run the mop over the screen and then repeat using Farecla G10 fine grade........Jobs a good 'un

Or if ya passing :rolleyes: I'll do it for you:thumbup:

Best trick is the same for helmets - soak a cotton cloth in soapy water and leave on the screen overnight, all should be good in the morning - saves removing it to soak in water. You can use a degreaser like mucoff to assist but any soap will do.

Learn my my early mistake, don't remove sticky residue under running water with an abrasive pad, it shifted the residue, but it was only when I turned the tap off that I noticed the scratching:confused:. Spent the next hour scrubbing the rest of the screen to have the same effect all over (didn't look too bad in the end, and was a second screen):bom:
